Major issues on voters' minds was obamacare so how did it factor in the polls and what does president Obama's reelection mean now.
For the future of health care in America.
That we have it and it's called Obama care that I just into the segment Betsy -- -- -- she's a former lieutenant governor of New York she's also the author of decoding Obama.
Health care and actually read the whole bill hasn't -- Unfortunately it's a lot now.
And that's gonna roll out.
As written because of the election results last night so for example.
For the first time in history the government will be in control of your care.
Even if you have a private health plan you've paid for yourself under section thirteen eleven the government dictates how doctors treat even privately insured patients.
Seniors can expect less care because over half of this gigantic flaw it's paid for with cuts to Medicare.
So for example hospitals will have 247 billion dollars less money in this decade.

And the next occupant of the White House -- -- just the opposite interest no contraception.
-- So those -- the top five things and changed many more points and there which will continue to talk about as we move forward now with the full implementation.
