A Review Of The Obamacare Survival Guide
And Reviews Of Other Books In Same Category
This is a point in time when we all need to take a close look at The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”). This is especially true if you are a small business owner and employer.
There has been a great deal of hype on the “Right Wing” media outlets over a new book entitled ObamaCare Survival Guide authored by Nick Tate.
So, we went ahead and bought it (hard copy) and it just arrived in the mail. What follows is a review (quickly put together) on the aforementioned book and also, reviews of other books in the same category.
So far, and we haven’t gotten through the whole book, it appears to be a very comprehensive look at Obamacare.
From what we’ve heard, the actual bill itself was written in such a fashion (probably purposely) so that you could have 10 different lawyers read it and get 10 different opinions.
I does seem a little light in the small business info area so far, but we may revise this after completion.

This review is from: ObamaCare Survival Guide (Paperback)
This is a thorough outline of the most important affects of the Affordable Healthcare Act aka Obamacare. I purchased it, and read it from cover to cover. Unlike the two previous reviews, this book is a pretty objective take on how the bill is likely going to be implemented. The left wing reviewers likely either didn’t read the book, or were critical of the book quoting the CBO’s (Congressional Budget Office) revised analysis of the cost of implementation and didn’t like the fact that the further we go down the road of implementation, the more the costs and affects are becoming apparent.
