Here's a publication from NCPA you should read. Forget the sound bite. Forget the government spin. This is the best source I've seen to find out what Obamacare will look like “on the ground” to the extent it's possible to say right now. I add that last qualifier because there's a lot we still don't know. Many provisions of the law are under the discretion of a handful of czars who could shift the landscape in any of several directions. Important provisions unfold over several years and in the meantime elections are coming up and challenges in over 30 states are in the works. So health care in the US is far from settled right now. Less settled, I dare say, than it was before passage of the bill.
