Take the Kaiser foundation's quiz on health care reform

I'd expect 10 for 10 from mosr people here. One really scary thing is that some questions only 25%-40% gpt right.

http://healthreform.kff.org/quizzes/health-reform-quiz.aspx

The health reform law promises to deliver big changes in the U.S. health care system. But, as with other sweeping pieces of legislation, it can be hard to get the real facts about what it does. And it is all too easy for misinformation about the law to spread.

Take our short, 10-question quiz to test your knowledge of the law, and then find out how you compare to the rest of the country, as represented by the findings of the Kaiser Family Foundation's monthly Health Tracking Poll.

2. You answered 10 out of 10 questions correctly, better than 99.6% of Americans.

That's ridiculous.

3. You answered 9 out of 10 questions correctly, better than 97% of Americans.

Thanks for posting, this is a great tool. Unfortunately it makes me incredible sad, but determined. Better than 97% of Americans?????????????

We as a party need to do whatever we have to do to get the correct information out about the ACA. This type of result is clearly what the GOP has been working towards.

6. I didn't read the whole thing,

but I guess I do know what is there. I got 10 out of 10 and I do try to educate people. Sadly, most of my friends already "get it!" I am preaching to the choir a lot, but that allows me to refine my message. We all have to spread the message. This year is a do or die year for democracy in America.

7. Got 10 of 10

If you've been paying attention (and I assume everyone here has) the quiz is not difficult.

12. 9/10

"better than 97% of Americans". Clearly, Obama and the administration need to do more to help Americans understand this law.

Still heartening to know more about this than 97% of America.

I owe a deep debt to DU for their continuing education into "current events"

18. Corporate Propaganda

Everything most Americans know is BULLSHIT!

And that's exactly the way our current PLUTOCRACY wants it!

Isn't there a more noble aspiration in life for these fuckers than naked greed? What the fuck is wrong with some SHARED PROSPERITY like America enjoyed for about 30 years after WW2?

I'm a 58 year old boomer, and looking back on my life, I didn't know until recently that the middle class prosperity I took for granted in my youth has been slowly taken away from all of us for the last thirty years.

American Democracy needs an EXTERMINATOR to rid ourselves of the Greedy SOCIOPATHS that have captured virtually ALL OF OUR INSTITUTIONS!

Back in a minute to cut and paste that wonderful Chris Hedges quote recently posted on DU via Facebook.

"We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religions destroy morals and our banks destroy the economy" Chris Hedges
