Although President Obama signed his health care initiative into law two years ago, it's just now making its way into Americans' lives. Most still don't really know how the law will affect them.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, best known as Obamacare, has been controversial since it was drafted in 2009 and signed into law a year later.
It gives the government control over one-sixth of the U.S. economy and is more than 2,700 pages long.
Most lawmakers who voted for the bill admitted they hadn't even read the legislation - even its most ardent supporter, then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
"We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog of controversy," Pelosi said at the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties.
One man who has studied the law in detail is C.L. Gray, an author, physician, and founder of Physicians for Reform.
In his book, The Battle for America's Soul, Gray paints an ominous picture of life in America under government-mandated health care - especially for the elderly and those with life-threatening illnesses.
According to Gray, there are two primary problems with the healthcare system that Obamacare fails to rectify:
- The skyrocketing cost of healthcare.
- The many Americans who are still at risk of losing access to their physician.
Gray talked more about his new book and what life would look like under Obamacare on "The 700 Club," Aug. 28. Click play for the interview.
