This Friday, a new bill will introduced in the 112th session of Congress by Rep. Cantor (R-VA), the “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act.”

Such a provocative title! This may be time for a basic overview of the Affordable Care Act, regardless of your political affiliation. The video below, produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation, is one of the best that I have seen; in fact, I have used it for teaching purposes to begin discussions about the current law.

    Such a provocative title!

    Which, along with several other indicators, tells us that the sponsors aren’t serious. They know that it has a snowball’s chance of passing, but they’re doing some red-meat theater for the base.

    Did you see the bill? Scary and a bit of a lack of IT Literacy on the cost of resetting thousands of IT systems to do this.

    Lets see, the two parts of the health care bill the Rethugricans hate the most are the individual mandate, which they proposed, and the “death panels” which they also proposed.

    Too bad they weren’t totally left out of the development.
