Any time laws change, there is public outcry, both justified and unjustified. The recent passage of the Affordable Health Care Act in the United States is no exception. Since the Supreme Court’s upholding of the constitutionality of the act, misconceptions about the provisions of the bill have abounded. Congress has made thirty-three attempts to date to block the act from becoming law, wasting countless hours and resources.
The purpose of this website is to explore the Affordable Health Care act in terms of what it really proposes to do, how it has been presented by the Media, the empirical reality of the act, public opinion, and common misconceptions. We will attempt to bridge the gaps between the average American’s understanding of the Affordable Care Act and the reality of its provisions.
