Healthcare Reform is one of the topics that have been vollied back and forth by both parties. The accusations on what is in place and what is being proposed are worlds apart from what is "REALLY" going on . . .
We encourage you to read the following information directly from the White House on what the Affordable Care Act involves. It is not just "Obamacare", it is People Care and the care we need to keep our nation progressing requires a healthy nation able to take care of its young and its elder populations. We still believe the mark of a nation is how it caters, cares, and communicates to the entire population.

Get the Facts Straight on Health Reform
There's a lot of misinformation out there. For too long, too many hard working Americans paid the price for policies that handed free rein to insurance companies. President Obama’s health reform law gives hard working families the security they deserve. The Affordable Care Act holds insurance companies accountable, lowers health care costs, gives Americans more freedom and control in their health care choices and improves the quality of care. Here are some of the myths that the White House provides:
l.) Healthcare reform will not use your tax dollars to pay for abortions.
2.) Healthcare reform will not be taken over by the government. The insurance companies are in partnership to strengthen laws, create exchanges, and to assist employees and employers to receiving tax credits to help the insured.
3.) Companies will stop offering healthcare insurance. Companies do offer healthcare to attract talent, however many companies are hiring more individuals as contractors to also diminish paying insurance, even insurance companies are doing this. However healthcare insurance discounts are being offered if employers work for certain companies as an incentive.
4.) "The individual responsibility provision also enables us to finally ban discrimination against individuals with pre-existing conditions. Without the individual responsibility provision, people could wait until they’re sick or injured to apply for coverage since insurance companies could no longer say no or charge more. That would lead to double digit premiums increases – up to 20% – for everyone in the individual insurance market".
