    By Joseph Yates

    I’m sure it’s not news to you that Obamacare (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) kicks in soon.

    Many people have questions about the new law but, sadly, the misinformation machine never sleeps. These scare tactics make it hard for folks to get accurate information, particularly when we see rallies of hoodwinked people toting placards that say ”Get your government hands off my Medicare!” on our television news.
