Archived Obamacare Questions

On Oct. 16, 2012 published its 128-page white paper titled “Obamacare: A Nonpartisan Review of What It Is and What It Is Not.” Over the next week, our website was updated to reflect the most current questions, responses, and facts from the white paper. Our older questions have been archived, many of which contained responses and facts about Obamacare prior to its passage in Mar. 2010. For some people, the historical significance of that information is relevant which is why we have retained links to those older questions in the presentation below.
