Affordable Care Act: Myths, Facts, & Benefits

  • 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.
