Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for the New Healthcare Law

Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for the New Healthcare Law

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been a political football for years now, but as its provisions start going into effect, there’s still precious little information available on how it will impact you, your family, and your pocketbook. This 2,572 page document, nearly unreadable, will change your health care, your family budget, and innumerable aspects of your life.

But what does this law actually say?

Beating Obamacare by Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D. is the straightforward, practical guide to navigating Obamacare that every individual and family needs to own. This guide will tell you exactly what to expect, what’s changing, and how much it will cost you and your family.

In Beating Obamacare, Dr. McCaughey unravels:

  • The Obamacare Law timeline: find out when each provision of the law goes into effect, so you won’t be caught by surprise
  • The Obamacare “winners” and “losers:” who gets a free ride, and who has to pay more, so you can make sure you protect your money and get the best quality of care
  • The most controversial part of this new law—The Individual Mandate: what does it mean for the individual patient? How will it change your care?
  • The new health insurance exchange landscape: how to find the best deal available
  • The expansion of Medicaid and downsizing of Medicare: ensure your future care or the care of your elderly loved ones
  • The twenty new taxes/tax hikes that will affect you: don’t let them sneak up on your family budget
  • And much more…


Intimidated by the legal jargon? Not to worry, this guide comes fully equipped with the “Obamacare Glossary” in the back!

Beating Obamacare is the essential consumer guide to understanding and preparing for one of the biggest changes about to take over Americans’ health care and family budgets.

    I am obsessed on this topic. I read everything. The big difference between this book and the highly advertised Nick Tate book called Survival Guide (which I unfortunately own) is that McCaughey actually read the law. You can tell the minute you start reading her book. She presents an in-depth picture of how the law will affect you if you currently get your insurance at work, or if you’re on Medicare or if you’re in business for yourself. Worth the price. This is the woman you see on Fox and CNBC. She’s the expert.

    “Beating Obamacare, Your Handbook for Surviving the New Health Care Law” is a misleading title. There is very little information about how ordinary people can mitigate the impact of this legislation, let alone survive it. The book does a good job of explaining what is in the law and how it will affect the lives of Americans. But how to “beat” it or “survive” it? Nope. It is merely a title designed to sell books. The same technique worked equally well for legislators who decided to call a draconian usurpation of power, “ObamaCARE.” So buy this book if you want a plain-English explanation of what the law says. If you want to know how to survive the law, keep looking.

    This review is from: Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for the New Healthcare Law (Paperback)

    Beating Obamacare is an `everyman’s’ guide to understanding what major changes to expect under the new health law. McCaughey is the nation’s expert on the topic and has committed her career to reading lengthy legislation and informing the public on what’s actually in bills pushed through Congress. We all know Washington politicians rarely read the bills they vote on, as long as a hat is tipped to their special projects. The only way to change the disgraceful way Washington does business is to get informed about the true contents of laws.

    DC politicians have underestimated the power and intelligence of the everyman. We aren’t going to continue taking political talking points at face value. A renowned academic and former Lt. Governor of New York State, Betsy McCaughey has consistently pushed back against `business as usual’ in local, state, and national politics. She has again taken a stand on behalf of `we the people’ and written an informative, concise, and forward-looking guide on big changes under this new law.

    The book is easily broken down in sections based on major groups and how they are affected. Entrepreneurs, doctors, the young and elderly, uninsured, critically ill… McCaughey covers it all. The book includes timelines and additional resources on how to find more information.

    I was shocked to learn that as many as one-third of individuals may lose on-the-job health coverage in 2014 under Obamacare. Medicare funding is raided under this law to fund an unprecedented expansion of Medicaid, just as baby boomers turn 65. The Sec. Health and Human Services is granted incredibly BROAD powers over how doctors treat patients. Patient privacy is compromised as the Secretary forces doctors to collect certain information on every patient and register the data electronically. Although your doctor can now ask you if you’ve ever considered suicide, for example, they can’t follow that question up with `do you have access to firearms’, thanks to the Senate amendment slipped into the law (Section 2716 part c).

    The Obama health law is now the law of the land. The most disappointing part of all is the goal of helping the uninsured and getting control of healthcare costs was a bill of goods sold to the American public. McCaughey describes the VAST expansion of government employees under this law, requiring a major chunk of the revenue from the law’s new taxes… revenue that certainly is not going to better our healthcare system or provide access to the needy.

    Let’s stay informed on the issues and show the career politicians–Republicans and Democrats– that we aren’t as numb as they think. We the people have the power to make a change and stop the power grab and manipulation pouring out of DC.

    The best part of this book: All facts and figures are backed by specific citations of the law and published studies from credible institutions. Fact check McCaughey and anyone else making claims about what laws actually say. Facts don’t lie and Beating Obamacare gives you the tools to uncover the truth about the future of our health system.
