“The Obama administration moved forward today to implement provisions in the health care law that would make it illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions. The provisions of the Affordable Care Act also would make it easier for consumers to compare health plans and employers to promote and encourage employee wellness.”
Essentially what the Affordable Care Act commonly referred to as Obamacare is making it easier for consumers (the American people) to choose what healthcare they want. The idea is to promote the ability for the masses to choose specific healthcare programs that willa ultimately have beneficial affects on both the consumer as well as employers.
