In 2010, Congress passed the Affordable Care Act. It is the most significant overhaul of the nation's health care system since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965 as part of President Lyndon Johnson's Great Society.
Obamacare is multifaceted and very complicated. Among its most discussed provisions, the law requires individuals to have health care or pay a penalty. It also requires health insurance providers to cover pre-existing conditions. (Go to our special Health Care page to get detailed information.)
On Thu. Oct. 3, KEYE TV is bringing together supporters and opponents of the Affordable Care Act along with experts on health care for our 3rd "Your Voice, Your Future" Town Hall meeting. It will take place at the United Heritage Center at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock from 6 to 7:30 pm. We will stream the Town Hall in its entirety on keyetv.com. The first half hour will air on KEYE TV.
We encourage you to participate. If you would like to be in the audience, with a chance to ask questions live, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit questions in the form below or on Twitter. Use the hashtag #keyetvtownhall.
