So, if you're like me, you have no idea about this Affordable Care Act. Honestly, I'm not sure that our actual governing body has any idea about it!

But, I do know that...

There are somewhere around 50 million Americans - men, women and children, without health insurance right now.

The fact is, about 60 percent of all personal bankruptcies in the U.S. are related to medical bills.

I think it's time to get to the bottom of it!

While researching it to see what kind of benefits my family would be receiving, I found this fabulous little video that explains it in a way just about anyone can understand!

So, check it out, it's by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

I know there are a lot of people who would like to see Obamacare repealed.  But, I know that tens of millions of Americans will then continue be without proper coverage, and insurance companies will continue to be able to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions.  Also, America will continue to suffer the consequences of a health care system controlled by private for-profit companies, whose bottom line is money and not health.

I know that many folks don't think that the Affordable Care Act is a great idea, but maybe if we all learn the facts, we can agree that it might be a good first step in the right direction?  What do you think?
