Election Didn't Demystify Obamacare

Perhaps because I am, at heart, an optimist, I expected that President Obama's re-election would eliminate a lot of the uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act. So we turned writer Michael Jacobs loose on the subject for this week's cover story, asking him to give us all the details.

He came back with a great package of stories, unfortunately, they didn't include any real answers. It wasn't his fault, of course. It turns out that even though it's practically certain that Obamacare will be implemented, we still don't know exactly what that means. So amidst all the panic over the fiscal cliff, at some point someone has to sort out the details.

The wheels of change grind slowly, especially when Washington is involved.
