The Orwellian named “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” – funny how all Obama’s bills have the exact opposite effect of their lofty titles – was deliberately designed to delay the costlier and most unpopular parts of its implementation until after November 6, 2012… now Americans are about to find out what they voted for.
Delaying implementation until 2014 helped the president win re-election, but now the bill is coming due. The administration can’t forestall Obamacare’s massive regulatory impact any longer, and the result will keep Congress and the media occupied for months and years to come.
The administration has just begun to issue guidance (proposed rules) to the insurance industry on Obamacare’s most important (and expensive) insurance market “reforms.” Insurance plans must have clarity on these issues if they are to develop and price plans for the individual and small group markets both inside and outside of the exchanges.
Guess you had to pass it to find out what’s in it…
