Can you score any better on an Obamacare quiz than 99.6% of Americans? The Kaiser Family Foundation, which calls itself a non-partisan information source on healthcare policy, has produced this quiz on the law. After months of compiling the results, they've found that less than one percent of Americans came up with all of the correct answers. (Naturally, Politix aced the quiz.)
Most Americans (67%) know that Obamacare prevents denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions. The quiz also tests your knowledge of "death panels," health care for illegal immigrants, and insurance rules for businesses.
So we reduce the budget for medicare, but that won't reduce what is covered, hmmm.. Government now has control over what is a covered hospital expense and what isn't but there is no Death panel. "Grandma, we're not killing you, the government just won't cover your medication anymore."
9 out of 10 correct, better than 97% of Americans. Nice quiz it let u see what u missed and gives u more information about the topic in each question. So no reason everyone can't get the facts straight
When I clicked "Take the Test" the link was to a page with the questions skipped and a zero score. Talk about a rigged deal. As for Obama care, the assumptions made be the administration are not to be believed. I think Obama care is just the first step to socialized medicine. Given the health care I've seen my foreign friends receive, I'd rather not go there.
I "googled" Kiaser Family Institute & in some articles it is stated that they are "one of Obama Cares strongest supporters." One article explains how the KFI arrives at a conclusion that is not true. That quiz it seems to me, trying to persuade people by misrepresenting the answers.
"The IRS, Health and Human Services and many other agencies will now write thousands of pages of regulations -- an effort well under way: "There's already 13,000 pages of regulations, and they're not even done yet," Rehberg said."
Bo, Folks just absolutely refuse to find out what is going on right under their nose. It is like this administration can do what it pleases at anytime and idiots do not realize they are destroying America.If Obama were to lose the upcoming election I predict he is going to empty the jails and I look for Abu Jamal to be the first pardoned. People have no real idea what Obama can and will do.He is also dumping every American dollar he can he is going to equalize the system by getting rid of all the money.
I think he is leaving no stone unturned when maximizing spending. One of the wrenches that the Reagan Revolution threw into the Cloward-Piven plan was "welfare reform" in 1996. President Obama just gutted that.
The strategy is to collapse the system from within by spending too much. I have little doubt that the extra spending on separate planes for President Obama and the First Family are just a dot on an "i".
He must be removed at all cost or America will collapse! The food stamp deal is just another way of getting out his base.(Those that refuse to work) There are plenty of jobs out their for those without an education but if they can get it for free why work?
To Toby: Why do you assume it only helps the poor? There are millions of people like me who could not have gotten private insurance because of 'Pre-Existing Conditions'. But then if you are truly interested, you would find out things for your self. There is a wealth of information on the web. Just Google it. And thanks to the kindness of Bobolinsky it is PPACA. May I be damned and forever disgraced for leaving of the PP.
I didn't have to get past Question one, when it told me all I needed to know. That its going to FORCE me to pay for other people one way or another. Not too mention, my company will probably stop offering insurance and I will lose my excellent benefits I worked my A$$ off to get. Where in this quiz is the question of how much this monstrosity is going to cost????
It was easy to see how the questions were slanted toward favoritism of the law. I answered correctly questions the test rated incorrect, simply because of the wording. For instance, while the "death panels" are not called "end of life" panels or anything remotely close to that, there are panels which will regulate treatments as to cost effectiveness and "quality of life" decisions. Money will trump everything. I had my hip replaced this year, for a reason. The law's very existence will give the government an excuse to regulate everything we do. My husband and I are both diabetic and have heart problems, yet we have had two different insurance providers since 2008 and nothing was ever said about pre-existing conditions. Our daughter works as a nurse in ICU and she says the patient charts she sees do not name the patient's insurance company or status and their care is not restricted by the insurance company, contrary to the way insurance coverage is portrayed on television programs. Your doctor doesn't know what insurance company you have, his billing department does. Big difference.
@Realthinker -------Well it sure doesn't sound like you do...Still trying to imply that there are "death panels" ...but the law just doesn't call them that.(There are NO "death panels" in this law) That's a repub myth. And its great that your doc doesn't know what insurance co. you use---MINE knows mine..and a lot of other people are in that same position. "Money", by the way...Already "trumps" EVERYTHING in this country!!!---That's what this whole law is trying to reign in. The insurance company greed for profits over healthcare & medicine!
@Frank You are going to be very disappointed. Those panels are there. Your doctor's office has office staff to handle insurance claims so the dr. doesn't have to concern himself with which patient has which insurance. I guarantee you he does not know know which plan you have and what it may or may not cover. The staff doesn't know all the details either. Notice, they will have a notification somewhere that obtaining pre-approval for certain procedures is your responsibility, not theirs.
I scored 10 out of 10 putting me as knowing more than 99.6% of most Americans. Essentially the quiz covers a lot of the misinformation about the Affordable Care Act.
Considering the ACA is the same plan created by Massachusetts Governor Romney, one would think that he would want to take full credit for doing the right thing instead of denying a plan that has its roots in the Heritage Foundation (a right wing think tank).
