After an introduction by Paul Craig Roberts, an anonymous author gives a remarkably deep analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, commonly referred to as the ACA or Obamacare, that goes into full effect in 2014.

Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York and author of the new book ‘Decoding the Obama Health Law,’ details the problems ahead for the 250 million Americans who already have health coverage. Example: If you’re a senior or baby boomer, cuts in future Medicare funding (to pay for over half the Obama health law) means that hospitals will have $247 billion less to care for seniors.
