"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."
How Congress paid for Obamacare (in two charts)
"We're probably going to be talking about the Affordable Care Act a lot between now and November. So it's worth taking a look at what actually pays for the health-care law and what that means for the future of Medicare and other programs.
There are two broad ways that Congress paid for the health-care law: It cut into government spending and created provisions that raise revenue, giving it the funds necessary to expand insurance to an estimated 32 million Americans. All of those changes are outlined in a July 24 Congressional Budget Office report."
