St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Since last Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, NewsChannel 5 received numerous comments and questions from viewers.
Thomas McAuliffe, a policy analyst from the Missouri Foundation for Health, visits the NewsChannel 5 set to answer some of those important questions.
The Missouri Foundation for Health is non-partisan and receives no funding from any source that could potentially shape its agenda, nor does it advocate for any element of the law or suggest what the state of Missouri should do.
McAuliffe answers the following questions in an interview with Mike Bush:
Question: Will taxes go up on all medical appliances?
Question: Is there a new tax on the sale of new homes beginning in 2013 or 2014?
Question: Will medical care be rationed?
Question: What about the hundreds of "hidden taxes" that won't take effect until 2014?
