This booklet doesn't deliver on the title's promise
on August 15, 2010
I purchased this booklet because I was impressed with Betsey McCaughey's passion for the subject in TV interviews. I hoped it would provide facts to share with friends and family about how much of our freedom and privacy has been sacrificed in the name of reform. The text tiptoes around these issues, but it lacks focus; it deals with just two of the law's provisions, the changes to Medicare and the individual mandate. Unless you've been living under a rock, you won't learn anything new from this booklet. It isn't even close to a complete summary of the major provisions of the law. By sheer coincidence, I received an 8-page document from my insurance company the day this booklet arrived. It offered a much more complete (and worrisome) year-by-year description of the law's provisions, for free. I can't say whether the book was poorly written, destroyed in editing, or both, but it was a complete waste of money.
