There have been several negative responses to Obamacare since it was rolled out. Donna Brazile wanted to know why the cost of her health care has increased even though Obama said it wouldn’t cost Americans a single dime more. Some Americans feel it will cause businesses to close. The fact that Obamacare will be run by the IRS does not put it in a good light.
What is Obamacare?
The actual name is the Affordable Care Act. In the video below, President Obama discusses how the program works for people who have insurance through their employers. He also clarifies that the other part (to be implemented in 2014) allows individuals to buy insurance in an “exchange” where companies are competing for their business.
