    At this point, I have still not figured out how the exchanges work, and what I need to do in 2014. Currently, I'm in a state high-risk pool, but if ACA means the state can dump it, they will, and I need to know what I'll need to do and how.

    It's clear that a majority of Americans don't understand what's in the ACA (though the individual parts, aside from the mandate all poll well).

    So I'd say that this is more in the way of public service announcements and education than advertising/marketing.

      There are SO many increased protections and regulations in the ACA that American's have no idea about.  Lots of them are great.

      Not knowing these things hurts people who then don't know what to demand of their insurance companies under the law.

      Look at it this way. GWB spent 150 million selling an idea that WAS NOT LAW.  Obama has every right and DUTY to do the same, for a whole lot less yet, for something that now IS THE LAW.

      Yes!  Much more a public service announcement, the kind that are made about the laws of this country ALL THE TIME.

      And if the SCOTUS overturns it, well that's going to be their problem, and the republicans' problem, believe me.  Until then Obama is correct to go forward with confidence in  legislation the congress has passed.
