May 14, 2012
Under ObamaCare, health insurers must in some cases send rebates to insured individuals. Under new regulations, the Wall Street Journal reports, they also have to emphasize to recipients that this money comes to them as a result of "the Affordable Care Act--the health reform law."

Well, this may be a clue: Last month, Kathleen Sebelius, the cabinet secretary whose department issued the new regulation urged doctors "to educate people" about ObamaCare. "We don't need to tell them that the Affordable Care Act is going to change the world," she said. "We just need to tell them how the law can help, right now."
