    I stumbled across an online quiz that tests a persons knowledge of the facts behind how the PPACA (Obamacare to you) will operate. Oddly enough, the quiz didn't mention socialism, Hitler, the rape of America or even socialist Hitler rape.

    So take a break from lifting yourself up by your bootstraps and give the quiz a go.

    8 out of 10 and one of them I answered "Don't know."
    According to the quiz, I did better than 90% of Americans (for what it's worth).

    9 out of 10

    Are you under the impression that people that don't like it don't understand it?

    This.

    Answered how OP would and got 10/10. Knowing what I know about Obamacare, the quiz is full of half-truths, exaggerations, and outright propaganda.

    Yeah, it is.

    Death panels (I know technically this isn't the name)
    No such panels exist. While early versions of the law did contain provisions that would allow Medicare to reimburse physicians for voluntary discussions with patients about end-of-life, these provisions were dropped from the final legislation.

    Medicare
    No. The law reduces payments to the privately administered Medicare Advantage plans, but they will still be required to provide all benefits that are covered by traditional Medicare.

    Illegals
    No. Undocumented immigrants are not eligible to receive financial help from the government to buy health insurance, nor are they eligible for Medicaid or to purchase insurance with their own money in the new Exchanges.
