    Which Is Better Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act

    Published

    on

    Last time I checked, Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act was the same thing. However, Jimmy Kimmel was able to show that some Americans love the Affordable Care Act, but they hate Obamacare because it forces people to buy health insurance. In a segment where Jimmy hits the streets, he quizzes random pedestrians on current news worthy events, and the responses he often receives are quite hilarious. According to Yahoo News:

    A recent CNBC poll found 46 percent of respondents said they are opposed to Obamacare. But only 37 percent of the same people taking part in the poll say they oppose the Affordable Care Act.

    “I just think there’s a lot of holes in it and that it needs to be revamped. I just think it hasn’t been thought out,” one person says when asked why she doesn’t like Obamacare. When asked about the Affordable Care Act, she responds, “It’s better but I’m not happy with that, either.”

    “Just the name says it all,” adds another man, who said he’d sign up for the Affordable Care Act but not Obamacare.  Read More

    After the government shutdown on midnight October 1st, Obamacare immediately went into effect at 12:01 AM. Although the healthcare.gov website for signing up with the exchanges experienced some glitches, 1 million people had logged onto the website before 7AM. By noon, over 2.8 million people were looking to get quotes on a new healthcare plan. Despite the website’s launch getting off to a rocky start, there sure are a lot of people interested in Obamacare.

    The Department of Health and Human Services have put together videos, webinars, tool kits, state by state fact sheets to help you better understand the changes being implemented. View all resources using this link: http://www.hhs.gov/opa/affordable-care-act/index.html
