Obamacare is the term used to describe the Affordable Care Act that was signed into law by President Obama in March of 2010. The Affordable Care Act, also known as the Patient… Protection and Affordable Care Act or PPACA, expands the government's role in the provision of healthcare by expanding coverage through new entities (State Exchanges) and existing government programs (Medicaid, Community Health Centers), restructuring how coverage is provided (Medicare) and delivered (Accountable Care Organizations, Medical Homes), all with the intent of creating a healthcare system that dramatically reduces the size of the uninsured population in the United States.
If it is over 6 pages (the size of the Constitution) it is too big... 2000 The number of pages depends on how the law is formatted. When it was a bill, it was over 2,000 page…s long. Formatting led to it being 961 pages as a law. The law contains 2,163,744 words. According to Wolfram|Alpha, that is about a 24 pound book.
According to studies and polls which have been conducted, NO senators fully read the bill.... Which is no different than any large bill passed by Congress. Congr…ess members work on specific sections, and rely on other members (and their leadership) to explain the other provisions they didn't work on. The hitch here is that it appears that the leadership was never able to provide a full summary of the PPACA to members, so members voted on it based on a bit more faith and trust than normal. But it's hardly uncommon for this to happen.
As Obamacare (the PPACA law) is not some sort of coverage plan, but rather a healthcare regulatory framework law, no one will be directly covered by Obamacare. R…oughly 11 million people who do not currently have medical coverage are expected to be covered under some method provided by the PPACA. The majority (about 60%) of these folks will be through expanded Medicaid coverage. The remainder will mostly be people buying coverage through a state or federal Exchange, with subsidies possible from their employer and/or the federal government. A large unknown is the number of people who qualify for exchange-based coverage (and possibly some level of subsidy), but choose not to purchase that coverage. Note that we will NOT know actual numbers until most likely 2016 at the earliest, as there are considerable kinks to work out in the new law, and actual coverage numbers will be unknown until all reporting is finished, which typically lags at least a full calendar year behind reality.
No. Just a rumor going around.
2000 pages are in the ACA.
Does the new ObamaCare Law have a provision in it that taxes the future sale of your house another 3.8 percent?
No, this is another of the many internet myths about the Affordable Care Act, called "Obamacare" by many people. There is no such tax on the future sale of homes. Snopes.com a…nd other fact-checking sites have debunked this claim.
One of the dumbest and most irrelevant questions i've seen in a very long time. and way to show your predisposition by calling it Obamacare. It is actually, almost verbatim, a… Heritage Foundation (conservative) authored plan anyway. call it Heritage care. One person opinion is OK to express. This plan has 2000 pages. Mr. Obama said he didn't mind it called Obamacare.
No, that is an internet myth, and there is no truth to it. The National Association of Realtors has also noted that this is a myth; the vast majority of home sales are in no w…ay affected by the Affordable Care Act. On the other hand, there is a small tax increase (3.8%) on investment income. It is not a sales tax, and only applies to certain people with the highest incomes, and certain transactions over $500,000. I enclose a link to a good explanation of it; most objective estimates say it will have no effect on 98% of Americans.
No, this is a very common internet myth, but so far, independent analysis of the Affordable Care Act (often called "Obamacare") does not indicate it will raise taxes on most p…eople. That said, there is one group of people (those who are very wealthy) who will be asked to pay a tax of about 3% on certain real estate transactions. This will not affect the vast majority of Americans.
Yes, any law can be repealed or modified by another law, and any part of the Constitution can be repealed or modified by another Constitutional Amendment except those that spe…cifically say they can't be.
Yes and no. There is a tremendous amount of misinformation around this subject, and fortunately, Snopes.com did a good job of cutting through the myths. Short answer, there is… a 2.3% excise tax ONLY on the sale of medical devices, and it mainly applies to the manufacturers of these machines, which must be for the purpose of diagnosing or treating diseases. The excise tax does not apply to such items as eye-glasses or hearing aids, and internet stories of people seeing the tax applied at such non-medical places as clothing stores are false. (It should also be noted that health industry lobbyists are trying to get the tax removed or scaled back.) I enclose the link to Snopes.com, which explains in detail what is and is not taxed.
The online version has about 900 pages. This probably looks like a large number, but it is actually typical-- many pieces of major congressional legislation contain hundreds o…f pages, along with footnotes and references.
