Obamacare hurts my head

Four years after its passage, most people in the United States believe Obamacare is the most complicated political issue they face.

Nearly 75 percent of people said the healthcare law is difficult to understand, according to a new poll by The Associated Press and GfK as reported by American Liberty PAC.

The Affordable Care Act ranked as the most complicated out of 10 issues surveyed, edging out long-term financing of Social Security, the Federal Reserve’s interest rates and data collection by the National Security Agency.

Only 5 percent of people called the law “very easy” to understand. More here.

As you recall, Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House told us she’d have “to pass it to find out what was in it” and former Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), then-chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, acknowledged he hadn’t read all of the legislation, which he said was work for “experts” hired by Congress.

“I don’t think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the healthcare bill,” Baucus said.

Actually, we would consider it a great use of our elected officials’ time to read the acts they pass on our behalf. And in future, we’d like them to pass acts we actually understand.
