One of the more enduring falsehoods surrounding the Affordable Care Act has to do with its price tag and its effect on the nation's financing. To be sure, "Obamacare" is a sweeping reform measure, but when its detractors say it's "too expensive" or "America can't afford this," it's an inherently dubious claim: the law lowers the debt and saves the nation hundreds of billions of dollars.For the right, this poses an important problem. read more
