Yesterday Congress approved the last of two health reform bills. The “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act” makes changes to the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” which President Obama signed into law on Tuesday.
The “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act” now goes to the President’s desk for his signature.
Based on the e-mails I have been getting from you, it appears that REALTORS® feel the same way about the bill as most Americans – some like it, some don’t, and most are confused about what exactly it means for them.
Love it or hate it, the new law has many provisions that will affect how we get healthcare and what we will pay.
We have updated the Health Reform page on Realtor.org with a new summary and FAQ that can help you understand what options you will have under the new exchange. I urge you to read these materials and share them with your fellow REALTORS®.
In the meantime, I welcome you to share your thoughts here on how the new laws are affecting you. – Vicki Cox Golder, 2010 NAR President
