A little knowledge.....No. 1 of a series
Back on April 30, the Kaiser Family Foundation, which is one of the most reliable and most interesting of the organizations tracking public thinking on health care, issued a new poll result. Fewer than six in 10 of the American adults asked knew that “Obamacare” – the Affordable Care Act signed into law on March 23, 2010, and which takes effect next year -- was still on the books. Nearly a quarter didn’t know. Nineteen percent believed they did know but were wrong – seven percent that the U.S. Supreme Court struck it down, and 12 percent that Congress repealed it.
