Affordable Care Act FACTS

If you are one of the people who, perhaps from the insidious effects of false propaganda emanating from Right Wing sources, continues to believe any of the following:

•  Obamacare has failed by a wide margin to increase the percentage of insured Americans
•  Obamacare has increased health care cost inflation
•  Obamacare is a job killer
•  Obamacare provides no benefit to people who continue to have employer based health insurance
•  Obamacare is ballooning the deficit

Please Note. All of these are entirely false and you really owe it to yourself to check out the facts.

First, every American with health insurance now is entitled to NO COST preventive care, including an annual physical, some blood tests, contraception, skin cancer screening and many more. No insured American faces lifetime caps. No insured American faces excluded pre-existing conditions. No policies are allowed to exist which fail to provide minimally acceptable standards of health coverage. Millions of EMPLOYED people are nonetheless eligible for subsidies if their income is below 400% of the poverty level.

As for the other factors, please read Krugman's detailed piece in the New York Times Friday, here:
