“Obamacare” is a law, not a medical provider or an insurance provider.
An Act of Congress can either be a public law or a private law, relating to specific institutions or individuals. For example, the Civil Rights Act, the Embargo Act, the Homestead Act, the Homeland Security Act, the Affordable Care Act, etc…
The Affordable Care Act protects you from insurance company abuses like cancellations for pre-existing condition and the gluttony of huge corporate multi-million-dollar bonuses.
Today, any premium/cost increases come from the for-profit corporate insurance companies. So the recent Palm Beach Post headline, “Obamacare costs, subsidies to rise” should accurately be “Obamacare subsidies, insurance companies’ premiums to rise.”
Can you name any other Act of Congress that insinuates blame on one man, a U.S. president, when private corporations’ costs rise? Americans, don’t let the misinformation, 24-7 propaganda machine lull you anymore. Again: “Obamacare” is a law, not a medical provider or an insurance company! So unplug yourself from the diabolical misuse of language, get the facts straight, and the truth will set you free. You’ll sleep better, too.
