Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is feeling pumped up about the seven million plus Americans that the White House says signed up for the Affordable Care Act. She slammed former Obama White House spokesman Robert Gibbs’ questioning of whether the employer mandate will survive any tweaks in the ACA’s final implementation.
“I don't know who his clients are or what his perspective is,” Pelosi says about Gibbs in an exclusive interview with Candy Crowley.

The oral arguments regarding Hobby Lobby vs. Sebelius commence in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. In this case the contraception coverage mandate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be debated, specifically as it applies to for-profit corporations.
The mandate requires businesses of a certain size to provide contraception coverage for their employees. Nearly 50 businesses, many of them Catholic, have sued, and some have protested the coverage of any form of birth control.
However, in the case currently before the Supreme Court, brought on by the Oklahoma-based arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., and an identical case brought on by Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., only certain contraceptives are disputed.

As March 31st quickly approaches, the Obamacare enrollment deadline has some people worried, and others simply confused. In short, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a set of health reforms that guarantees all Americans have access to affordable health insurance. By March 31st, the Obamacare program mandates that all Americans sign up for health care, or face a penalty. The fee for not having health insurance is $95 per individual, or 1% of your taxable income, whichever is greater. If Americans do not sign up by the open enrollment deadline at the end of March, not only will they have to pay the penalty fee, but they will have to wait until November when the open enrollment marketplace reopens.
