Get the facts on Affordable Care Act

As Republicans continue to attack the Affordable Healthcare Care Act, it celebrates its first anniversary. We celebrate too. 

Question: Was this originally called the Affordable Healthcare Act? That's what I keep calling it and now I find it listed as the Affordable Care Act. I like the change in wording but wonder when it happened.

Those interested in facts about the act, and what's it's done so far, can find info here:

HEALTH REFORM ( Official government site provides information on finding insurance options, prevention, comparing care quality and understanding the new law along with FAQ’s.

PROGRESS ( PROGRESS is designed to show the real effects of the steps President Obama and Democrats have taken to rebuild our economy. Behind these numbers are stories about people whose lives and communities have been positively affected by the change Democrats have made. 

( Wyoming Organizing for America is the grassroots organization that supports President Obama's agenda for change. Visit for blog posts, local events, and more!

KAISER FAMILY FOUNDATION ( A non-profit, private operating foundation focusing on the major health care issues facing the U.S., as well as the U.S. role in global health policy.  They serve as a non-partisan source of facts, information, and analysis for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the public.

LET’S MOVE ( A nationwide initiative to promote making healthy choices, improving food quality in schools, increasing access to healthy, affordable food, and increasing physical activity.

Healthcare will result in higher taxes, higher debt, rationing, and a lone healthcare czar accountabl¬e to no one, crushing burdens on small businesses¬, senior citizens losing their Medicare plans, higher premiums, and a potentiall¬y unconstitu¬tional mandate. All of this to redistribute wealth and manufactur¬e identical social and economic outcomes for everyone! I will never cease to be amazed by the complete insanity and lack of practicali¬ty.
