I’m human, and hurried. I make too many typos and too many errors, and I’m not any kind of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) expert. I’m just someone who tries to write articles about PPACA.
But I’ve come up with three indicators that show whether people writing about the topic are even even more lost than I am.
1. They write as if the PPACA exchange system is the same thing as PPACA.
No, it’s not. Whether it’s good, bad or mixed, it’s just one part of the PPACA commercial health insurance provisions, and that’s just one part of PPACA.
2. They say the U.S. Supreme Court “upheld PPACA” in June 2012, or could “kill PPACA” when it rules on King vs. Burwell.
No. In June 2012, the Supreme Court simply knocked down one set of constitutional objections to the PPACA individual coverage mandate. Another plaintiff could still get the mandate thrown out using some other legal strategy.
