Much has been made about the recent health care reforms passed in the United States Congress. There has been much debate about what will happen and how quickly the changes will take place. There has also been much discussion as to what exactly is in the bill. Both sides of the argument has tried their bests to shape the debate toward their respective corners. However, what is missing is the truth in the whole debate.
There has been countless lies and misleading on both sides of the argument. The lies tend to come from the opposition and the misleading tends to come from the supporters. The truth of the matter is that it will take at least a couple of years until everything in the bill begins to be implemented. Some factors will not fully take effect until 2020, while others will start in a few months.
One fact is undeniable, this bill is the most important piece of health care legislation since the inception of Medicare. This bill may even replace Medicare as the most significant step. We won’t know for a long time. Let’s see what happens!
