Jimmy Kimmel Asks People If They Prefer Obamacare or The Affordable Care Act

SPOILER: They are the same thing!

It’s the legislation that tea party republicans added to the government funding bill that shut down the government. “House Republicans insist any new spending bill include provisions to either defund, derail or otherwise chip away at Obamacare. Senate Democrats are just as insistent that it doesn’t.”CNN

But most people have no clue what the health care act even is! Lol.

For The Affordable Care Act/Obamacare? Here’s why:

“They say the law will expand access to health care and help rein in the rising costs of coverage. Obamacare prevents those with pre-existing medical conditions from being denied health insurance, and proponents say those who have health insurance will no longer have to indirectly pay for those who show up in emergency rooms uninsured.”-CNN. It makes healthcare more affordable for every American.

Against The Affordable Care Act/Obamacare? Here’s why:

“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the actual name of the law, requires all Americans to have health insurance. Opponents say it’ll hurt employers and amounts to overreach by the federal government. Some have also criticized the medical device tax that’s part of the law, saying that by imposing such a tax, it’s basically sending jobs overseas.”-CNN

Still confused? Here it is simplified.
