Let's take a look at ObamaCare without the party politics.

When it comes to the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, a large percentage of the public is completely misinformed about what the law actually entails.

Many of these misconceptions have been intentionally cultivated by political pundits from both the left and the right. An predictably, people have latched onto the distortions which most closely fit in with their world view.

Let's remove all the party politics and set the record straight.

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about Obamacare is that it's socialized medicine. Some view this as a good thing. Others view it as a bad thing. But the debate is irrelevant because it simply isn't true.

Socialized medicine, like they have in France, provides all citizens with health care services, regardless of income bracket, and pays for it through taxes. That's not what Obamacare does at all.

Obamacare is designed to force every single person in the U.S. to aquire health insurance from private companies regardless of where you get it. If your employer doesn't provide it, then you must purchase it on your own. If you don't, you'll be penalized and that penalty will be collected by the IRS.
