Review

"Betsy McCaughey is a national treasure. She has done what every Washington lawmaker should have done: Read the bill and defend the Constitution."
- Mark Levin, author of Liberty and Tyranny and The Liberty Amendments

"Betsy McCaughey is THE expert. She knows the law, regulations, and changes to this constantly morphing, job-killing monster called Obamacare."
- Larry Kudlow, anchor of CNBC's The Kudlow Report

Customer Reviews

Breaks everything down into easy to understand terms.
V. Wild
There were a total of fewer than 20 pages devoted to "beating" -- McCaughey is a great opponent of the legislation, but provides little help on how to beat it.
Jim Mooney
I've had to re-read portions for clarity's sake, but the booklet is a very good condensation of an extremely complex law.

The author, in this well-written book, has performed a great service in distilling the information in the Allowable Care Act and so palatably presenting it to the public. She points out the many dangers and threats inherent in Obamacare, which stands to revolutionize and compromise the delivery of the excellent health care we have been expecting and receiving over the past many years. She warns how Americans who receive their insurance via the exchange plans may not have access to the top health care providers by the well-known and highly regarded health care centers of excellence such as Columbia-Cornell, Harvard University, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and the like. In addition there are many superb practicing physicians with whom I have Had the pleasure of sharing my expertise and benefitting from theirs, who too may be off limits to the exchange insured patients. As a physician for over 50 years in New York City, I wonder how these institutions will adapt to the reduction and qualitative changes in the populations they serve. These institutions offer care to patients with difficult or unusual conditions. I am pessimistic regarding the quality of care in the future. Will Obamacare result in many high quality physicians leaving these institutions along with their clinical.educational, and research expertise? This book is very valuable and important to anybody concerned about health care. Norman Sohn, MD

This book helps the reader understand the difference between the ACA--passed into law and upheld by the Supreme Court and Obamacare. This administration has lawlessly changed the healthcare law with no regard to the constitution. McCaughey has turned this book into a tool to not only navigate the ever - changing rules, but also how to restore the Constitution. As a small business owner, understanding regulations (that seem to be ever-changing) is critical. Beating Obamacare is a must read.

I bought Ms. McCaughey's first book, so I was not sure I needed this. But this law has changed so much, - thanks to our President's own actions, that the information in 2014 is totally different. Also this new book has more strategies on what I - or any average Joe - can do! I feel ready, in case my employer drops my coverage, which looks likely. I may also lend this book to my Dad. He's on Medicare, and the first chapter on Medicare cuts is truly eye-opening!

This book for me is misleading with its title. I read nothing that instructed me as an individual on how I can beat Obamacare. I do not have the money to fight it in court although it has a lot of mandated coverages that goes against my religious beliefs. I read nothing about how I can avoid the fines for not having insurance or the unaffordable cost of premiums and deductibles if I try to acquire insurance. The only thing that I can do is cast my vote for politicians who say they will try to repeal this discriminatory law and I know that will take a lot of time if ever it takes place. The book would have been more appropriately titled "The Facts About Obamacare". I would have appreciated the work that went into the writing of the book.

I just got this book, so i haven't read it completely. But my wife and I had a baby last year, and we really need information about health insurance. This book looks great because it is so easy to read and is so clearly organized. I never read political books. But this book is practical. If you are looking for what all those labels mean - like Bronze, Gold, Silver - you get a straight story here. And I am really grateful for the section on Medicare. Both my parents need that information.

Contrary to the advertisement jargon, the book has NO info as to how one can "beat Obamacare". It advises, ""Politics got us into this mess, and we will have to use politics to get us out of it." Other great "personal-help" advice - "... first we must get rid of the special treatment for members of Congress...." and "We need a twenty-page bill in plain English..." There follows a self-promoting summary of the proposed twenty-page bill.
The book does have 13 chapters and 162 pages explaining what's wrong with Obamacare, but most of those have already been discussed on tv, circulated in emails or posted on Facebook, etc. The book is of no value to explain how someone might "beat" Obamacare, and is, therefore, a waste of money for someone looking for actual help.

Format: Paperback
borrowed this book, did not purchase it. while several arguments against obamacare are presented, they are mainly unconvincing (to me) due to their over-simplification of real circumstances. the cover's promise, "avoiding the landmines and protect your health, income, freedom" goes largely unfulfilled as most of the pages are actually spent on justifying why obamacare sucks (rather than explaining the implications of the ACA, its execution and what should be done now). ironically, such a one-sided approach makes McCaughey unequivocally guilty of the same fact-warping and cherry-picking strategies that she accuses the obama administration of committing. but then again, what else to expect from a book titled, "beating obamacare." my assumption is that those who have purchased this book already dislike obamacare enough but why not add fuel to the fire? ah, bipartisan politics.
