How Well Do You Understand the Affordable Care Act? Take Our Quiz!
“Obamacare” is one of the most divisive issues of the presidential election. But a new Stanford survey suggests that nobody really even understands it. What about you?
It is one of the Obama administration’s biggest accomplishments, one of Republicans’ biggest targets, and the first thing that Mitt Romney says he’ll undo if he becomes president. Given the emotions around the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, then, you’d think that people must have really picked it apart and made up their minds about it, right?
Not the case.
According to a new survey by Stanford University (pdf), hardly any Americans really understand what’s in the contentious, 900-page law, which was passed by Congress in 2010 with a single Republican vote.
