Dem Congressman: It’s hard to remember what Obamacare does 

Politico reports:

as Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) put it, “[explaining the health care law is] just like trying to explain the Encyclopedia Britannica.”

Much of the challenge, one representative explains, lies in how much the bill evolved in the reform process. With the law changing between different versions, and still changing as new regulations get written, answering constituent questions can pose a significant challenge.

“You need to know what you’re talking about and this is extremely complex,” said [South Carolina's Rep. John] Spratt, who faces a potentially tough re-election race. “It’s really difficult to remember, ‘was this in this bill, or was this in the bill Senate side.’”

In related news, American voters favor repeal of Obamacare by a 19-point margin.
