The goal of the Affordable Care Act (what many people call Obamacare) is to completely remake the nation's health care system. It is the most revolutionary public policy reform since the War on Poverty in the 1960s, with many laudable goals. But the methods are controversial. Further, this reform occurred at a time when the nation's capital is more polarized along partisan lines than at any time in recent history. As a result, no one is telling you the whole truth. Every revolutionary change produces winners and losers. There is some good and some bad. That's true of all change. But in this partisan environment, you simply cannot get objective information about what health reform means for you, at least not from anyone in Washington, D.C.This book was written to fill a vacuum.
