I’ve been looking everywhere for an explanation of so-called ‘Obamacare’ that doesn’t make me scratch my head in dismay and give up after the first 5 sentences. This totally fits the bill; a bullet-pointed, simple to understand explanation complete with links to various parts of the bill. While the writer is obviously in favor of what the bill is saying, it is stated plainly enough for you to make your own assumptions. It’s always good to be informed!
Like a lot of people in our ask box, use this thing we made to find out. Involves satisfying clicking and a progress bar.

And then you realize that, because of the man you voted for sticking up for the basic right to affordable health care, today millions of other people found out that they are going to be able to stop making the choice between food and medicine, and will get to experience that relief too. Thank you, President Obama.
The historic ObamaCare legislation passed by President Obama is pro-woman and pro-Catholic, especially considering that increased access to contraception will help to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies & abortions. The Ryan Plan that Romney has embraced, however, is an immoral budget against Catholic & Christian values.
Abortion continues to be a divisive issue, as only 23% of people believe it should be legal in all cases: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3nti78UmW1qm81zso1_500.png
When President Obama gave his speech at Notre Dame he stated that we have “unbridgeable differences” with people who are Pro-Life, but reducing the number of abortions in a way that does not diminish women’s right to choose should be a policy both sides can agree on. Even Stupak, the Pro-Life Democrat who withheld his vote on ObamaCare until the President signed an executive order ensuring no funds for abortion, came to vote for this legislation. He was most heroic when telling his Democratic colleagues to *vote down* his Stupak Amendment when Republicans tried attaching it to the House bill on March 21st 2010.
The benefits ObamaCare provides to women, and therefore families, are immeasurable: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m1ljse0xKX1qzhkvho1_r1_500.png
Hopefully, as more provisions become active over time, and the abortion rate falls due to women’s increased access to health care, Pro-Lifers & Pro-Choicers will see ObamaCare as a bridge they can share.
