"There are two Affordable Care Acts. There's the legislation passed by Congress in 2009, and then there's the mythical Affordable Care Act – the perfidious 'government takeover' decried and demagogued by so many conservatives (and quite a few liberals). The former is quite popular, the latter gets decidedly mixed reviews."
AARP Blames ObamaCare for Hike in Employee Health Insurance Costs
According to Peter Suderman, the AARP endorsement of Obamacare seemed like a good idea at the time, but is increasingly growing less appealing to AARP's members and employees. One reason for the increased dissatisfaction with the law is the fact that AARP's employees will soon be experiencing increased health insurance costs. Suderman reports that "[a] representative for the group said in an August 2009 Washington Post live chat that its support was predicated on the fact that 'health care costs are growing too fast for everyone.' The law passed, but judging by its own employee insurance premiums, that doesn’t appear to have changed."
