    • Some aspects of Obamacare health care reform are already enacted. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was signed 2 years ago, we bet you didn't even notice unless you needed coverage and didn't have it.

Unfortunately, since the supreme court ruling where the NFIB attempted to repeal ObamaCare, Medicaid can now be opted-out of at a state level leaving the states poorest uninsured. ObamaCare Medicaid Expansion

    • Did your health insurance premium go up? The Fact is ObamaCare puts a cap on insurance companies raising your premiums (for profit) starting in 2013 and into 2014. Moving forward insurance companies will have to justify rate hikes to the state and post them to their websites.
    ObamaCare Facts presents a detailed timeline of every protection, benefit and tax laid out in the Affordable Care Act Bill from 2010 to 2022. Health Care Reform Timeline
    • Starting OCT 2013 insurance companies will compete to be your healthcare provider via a health insurance exchange pool, this helps to decrease insurance premiums for all Americans.
    • Americans between 133% and 400% above the poverty level will buy affordable health care coverage on the "ObamaCare" health insurance exchanges. The less you make, the lower the percentage of your income you will have to pay and more help you will receive.
    • Annual limits for insurance premiums can be no more than 11% or less than 1.5% of your modified adjusted gross income, when insurance goes on sale via the health insurance exchanges in 2014.
    • Members of Congress will purchase their health care through the health exchange like the rest of us (who chose not to opt out and pay a tax, are covered by Medicaid or choose to stay on their existing insurance) Get more facts about the ObamaCare insurance exchange
    • Obamacare doesn't increase the deficit, it is projected to cut the deficit by over Trillion dollars over the next two decades.
    • ObamaCare offers countless benefits and protections that have been rolling out since 2010 and continue into 2022. Find out more about the Benefits of ObamaCare
    • American Employers with more than 25 or less employees may receive tax breaks of up to 35% of the cost of their employees insurance premiums. Employers with more than 50 employees must insure their workers or pay a tax (like the current state run unemployment and workers compensation programs)
    • Only 3% of small businesses will have to pay the additional 0.9% ObamaCare Medicare tax increase. This tax is only paid on profitable income over $250k (not on the first $250k). Unless Ma' makes over $250k, the Mom and Pop job creators will only gain better health care and tax breaks, not higher taxes. Learn the Truth Behind the ObamaCare Small Business Taxes, How They Effect America's Biggest Job Creators.
    • ObamaCare won't cause 650,000 Jobs to be lost as some of it's detractors say (the number isn't even in the CBO report on The Affordable Care Act). The often misrepresented quote stated that the only job loss ObamaCare may actually cause are from those who cut back their hours, since they will no longer have to rely on their jobs for their families health care. In fact most reports show that ObamaCare will create new jobs.
    • ObamaCare doesn't regulate health care, it regulates health insurance. What is ObamaCare?
    • If an you or your family chooses not to purchase healthcare through the Online Health Insurance Exchange, they can still buy private insurance, get insurance through work or Medicare / Medicaid. Those who chose to not participate will pay a penalty tax to help cover the rest of us. In other words it's a tax, not a mandate, no one is actually forcing you to have health insurance.
    • Obamacare cuts $716 billion of waste from Medicare and cuts reimbursements to private Medicare Advantage plans and reinvests it into Obama's health care reform. In other words $716 billion is saved and then $716 billion is reinvested back into Obamacare. Doctors and hospitals almost universally agree on this reform.
    • 19 million Americans will receive tax credits to help pay for healthcare and most middle class Americans will actually save thousands on healthcare via tax cuts (this has been going on for the past 3 years already)
    • The Affordable Care Act (ACA or ObamaCare) reduces costs of premiums to millions of families and small businesses and provides billions dollars in tax relief – the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history.
    • By 2019 17 million Americans below the poverty line will be eligible for Medicaid due to expansion of the program.
    • Our government is by the people and for the people. The health insurance companies are for profit organizations who are for the bottom line and the investors. Health Reform regulates health insurance providers to protect the people.
    • Over 20.4 million women will gain access to new women's health care preventative services and better access to wellness visits. Most services will have to be covered by law (The Affordable Care Act allows Religious institutions to choose to be exempt from providing controversial services to women).
    • The CBO estimates a Republican endorsed voucher program will end up costing seniors up to 4.8k more a year for insurance. Their plan also omits many of the protections of ObamaCare to seniors due to their plan to privatize Medicare.
    • All Americans have the option to stay on their current healthcare plans. No one including seniors will be forced not to have healthcare. That's an ObamaCare fact.
    • Many anti-Obamacare and repeal Obamacare messages are funded by superPACs, which are funded by those with the most to lose from national healthcare reform. Find out more about who wants to repeal ObamaCare?
    • The Affordable Health Care Act doesn't just focus on insurance, it also reforms the parts of the healthcare system that aren't working or are costing the tax payer money. For example, by focusing on preventive measures instead of just treatment ObamaCare will save tens of billions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives.
    • The ObamaCare fact is the average American will save money under Obamacare. In fact many Americans are already paying less for health care services.
    • Obamacare cuts the national deficit by over one hundred billion dollars during it's first 10 years.
    • ObamaCare aims to make it easier for small businesses to provide coverage to workers by offering Tax Credits to employers who enroll their workers in private healthcare plans.
    • One of the main goals of ObamaCare is to ensure that all preventative care will be free on all insurance plans. Private insurance plans that are grand fathered in and are all ready in place will be exempt until they lose their grand fathered status.
    MOST IMPORTANTLY: The "ObamaCare" Bill is currently signed into law. There are many people who would like to see ObamaCare repealed. If Obamacare is repealed millions of Americans will be without proper health coverage and insurance companies will continue to be able to deny healthcare for preexisting conditions. Without healthcare reform America will continue suffer the consequences of a health care system controlled by private companies, who's bottom line is money and not health. Help ObamaCare Facts to spread the truth about President Obama's health care reform.

    Imposing huge taxes during a recession never works. The hospitals are now trying to adjust to deal with the penalties that will be imposed on them for what the 'dictators' have define to be 'unnecessary readmissions'. This fine, I believe, will cause the hospitals to deny proper treatment in order to avoid these fines. This is only the tip of the iceberg. This is what the uneducated American voted for. They fell for the deception that is know as the Affordable Care Act. Read it and weep.
