The law (along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010) is the principal health care reform legislation of the 111th United States Congress.

1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems. 2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs. 3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tight ...

Last Tuesday, the Boston Globe published an editorial in which it reneged on its full support for President Obama’s signature health care legislation's implementation in Massachusetts. The editorial, entitled, “Mass. Needs An Obamacare Waiver for Small-Business Health Plans,” argues that while the state has “made a concerted effort in the last few years to rein in health care costs for small businesses,” the fact is that “new federal regulations written to implement the Affordable Care Act threaten to undercut those efforts — and saddle thousands of Bay State businesses with big increases in premiums.” Last December, Massachusetts officials wrote to federal regulators, suggesting the possibility of a waiver from the new rating factors for small businesses that are required under Obamacare. The letter indicated that the regulations would result in a substantial number of citizens experiencing, “extreme premium increases.” While the commonwealth previously allowed insurers to rate on fac ...
Like the Bill Murray character in "Groundhog Day", Paul Ryan steps into the icy puddle yet again on the Affordable Care Act.
Healthcare Changes You’ll Pay for in 2013 Imagine for a moment that you’re 8 years old and you run a lemonade stand. It’s the most simplistic of businesses—all you need are cups, lemons, sugar, water, ice and the right price. Unfortunately, the neighborhood discovers kinks in your business model. As a result, they impose a strict rule saying you may only charge $0.10 per cup—and if someone can’t afford that price, you must give it away for free. Now you’re left with few options for staying open. You could make customers bring their own cups, dilute your lemonade with water and serve it warm with no ice. But who wants to decrease quality? Instead, why not ask someone else—a parent, a grandparent—to shoulder the extra costs? After all, that is what the Affordable Care Act requires us to do. While the promise to fix healthcare, cover all Americans, ban lifetime caps, limit out-of-pocket expenses, and insure kids until age 26 sounds nice, someone has to pay for it. That someone is you. Since ...

Obama Care has a microchip implant for you… The Obama Health care bill includes (under Class II, Paragraph 1, Section B) “(ii) a class II device that is implantable”. Then on page 1004 it describes what the term “data” means in paragraph 1, section B: 14 (B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to 15 information respecting a device described in paragraph (1), 16 including claims data, patient survey data, standardized 17 analytic files that al ...

After President Barack Obama began reaching out directly to his Republican opponents in the wake of their failure to avoid the $85 billion budget sequester, many politicians and pundits speculated that the partisan fighting that has paralyzed Washington may finally be giving way to compromise. But even as congressional Republicans claim that they're ready to make a deal with the president, they're simultaneously reviving their favorite partisan play: trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Since Presidents are criticized for bad economies and praised for economic recoveries, I will congratulate President Obama for our recent market rebound. I am, however, cautiously optimistic regarding our nation’s long-term fiscal health because of our debt. I want to believe this recovery will be sustained as I have an I.R.A. and one of my business ventures is tied directly to the S&P index. Although I don’t like the Affordable Care Act and believe it will become another wasteful and burdensome entitlement program, he’s not the socialist I first believed him to be. Yesterday I saw a car with a bumper sticker that read “Impeach Obama.” I sat there waiting for the light to change and tried to imagine what articles of impeachment could be levied against the president. I couldn't think of one. Perhaps someone can enlighten me. monte
Theory: the Affordable Care Act led to the most recent uptick in jobs and not in a good way. The test for whether you are a large employer begins this year. Employers are trying to avoid the large employer penalty and thus hiring enough workers to keep average hours below 30. So jobs are going up at the expense of those already employed who would have been considered full time employees and thus would have been required to be covered by their employers. Plus that person is going to have to find a second job to make up the hours that will be cut. See how social engineering can backfire on you?

Regulators are now at work promulgating many of the rules that will determine whether some of President Obama's signature initiatives, including Wall Street reform and the Affordable Care Act, succeed or fail.

Sacrificing the Affordable Care Act ( ), the Cost of Avoiding Perpetual Calamity? healthcare
CREATING A BUDGET BY EXTRAPOLATING THE PRESENT AND ANTICIPATING THE FUTURE: What is lacking in the “Budget Discussions” is the ability to articulate the why: For example, The Republicans deserve great credit for positing an increase of the eligibility age for retirement Medicare. The foundational change that is anticipated by 2030-2050 is that Longevity will be a major factor of life. This change will be more available to all “classes-incomes” because the Affordable Care Act is now Law. As CBS related, the usual death rate for males (the typical workers) was once 67, but is now 76. Specifically, ½ of worker males (the measure of the basis for the program), meant that ½ died before age 67, and ½ later. Age 76 now, is the current average: and with the rapid advances in cardiac and cancer treatments, with nutrition and vitamin supplements, better food safety and education-vaccines, antibiotics, transplants, dialysis-these advances will exponentially increase. It is rational to increase the o ...

This is paid for by our premiums, finally! Know a preggo mama? If she wants to breastfeed, tell her to call her insurance before the baby arrives so the pump will arrive with plenty of time to spare!

Genetic testing for breast cancer risk to be covered as a preventive service by the US Affordable Care Act
Dear Friend: Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans about issues affecting seniors. Today’s economic climate further intensifies the unique challenges they face, and I appreciate your perspective. My Administration continues to support older Americans encountering unfair treatment, financial hardship, or difficulty obtaining health care. The historic Affordable Care Act strengthens Medicare by not only preserving but also expanding benefits for Americans who depend on Medicare every day. The law has helped more than five million seniors and people with disabilities save an average of over $600 on prescription drugs in the “donut hole” in Medicare coverage. Additionally, in 2011, more than 32 million seniors received 1 or more free preventive services, including the new Annual Wellness Visit.

Elizabeth Warren big bank allies now forever protected by Massachusetts Dodd-Frank Banking Reform, I.e. A kiss to the Wall-Street banks who spent billions to see to it that Harvard witch Elizabeth Warren was a lock to beat Brown under the auspices of a GOP War on Women so all their Wall-Street profits wouldn't be undermined by having to provide health insurance to their employees.

Reese Martinez Obamacare will be Challenged Again as Unconstitutional A little known secret about Obamacare began leaking a few months ago. The mainstream media has completely abandoned the issue. However, signs are beginning to point to hemorrhagic status as often times small leaks take up this route. What’s the secret? When crafting Obamacare Democrats and the President made a huge mistake. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, states were given the option to decide whether or not they wanted to set up an insurance exchange, which each state would run.

States that do choose to set up an exchange are to fine employers who do not provide insurance under the employer-mandate penalty. This money is then returned to the employees to purchase insurance through the state run exchange. Here’s the flaw. So far more than two dozen states have opted ou ...
Thanks, Helene: "Throughout the 2012 presidential campaign, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) railed against the Medicare savings included in the Affordable Care Act, campaigned against President Obama’s desire to increase marginal tax rates on the very wealthy, and promised that a Romney administration would offset the looming sequester. But next week, just four months after losing the November election, Ryan plans to unveil a budget that incorporates many of the policies he campaigned against, since the very changes he opposed as a vice presidential candidate can now help him reach his goal of balancing the budget in 10 years — and go a long way towards reducing the deficit: 1. Savings from Obamacare. On the campaign trail, Ryan criticized Obama for cutting $716 billion out of Medicare and using it to expand access to health care for millions of Americans through Obamacare.The House Budget Committee Chairman and most House Republicans had voted to preserve the savings in the GOP budget in 2012, though Romney an ...
