Many Americans are confused by the constant barrage of the terms “Obama Care” and “The Affordable Care Act”. Some do not realize that they are the same thing or what it entails. Employers and their employees have numerous concerns. Companies worry about the pros and cons of hiring full- time employees versus part- time employees. Wage earners are concerned with the number of hours that they can work. Some young people feel that they will be subsidizing older adults’ health care. Others question if Congressional members will be enrolled in Obama Care.
This MVCC blog will try to help members of our college community decipher the new health care changes. The post this week will give a historical perspective of the U.S. government’s involvement in health care.
