Affordable Care Act

Affordable Care Act and Olmstead

Forgive me in advance if this is boring to many of you. But I have been working on it all day and I would like to get thoughts from the group.

Everyone is familiar with the employer shared responsibility (aka employer mandate) portion of the ACA. While I think the mandate could use some tweaks I am not opposed to it in general. However I think something that hits close to home for me has been overlooked.

Affordable Care Act: Myths, Facts, & Benefits

Myth: The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is socialistic.


  • The only socialized medicine in the US is Veteran’s Health & the Indian Health Service.
  • The Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is modeled after the successful Massachusetts’ Healthcare Plan (“Romneycare”), a Republican program, conceived by the conservative Heritage Foundation. Both Obamacare and Romneycare depend completely on private insurance providers and expand private health-insurance coverage to people who previously did not have it.
