"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."
Obamacare: Impact on Seniors
According to Robert Moffit, senior citizens will especially experience an increased burden through the changes made to Medicare under the PPACA. Moffit lists increased taxes, funding cuts, and fewer doctors as some of the different changes shortly coming to Medicare. The author concludes by stating the following:
"If Congress is going to reduce Medicare and impose a hard cap on Medicare payment to restrain per capita cost growth, at the very least it ought to channel those savings right back into the program to enhance Medicare’s solvency and lay the fiscal foundation for real reform. Seniors deserve better than what Obamacare gives them."
