Friday, 21 November 2014 04:11
The Affordable Care Act, which is reducing the number of unpaid medical bills at the nation’s hospitals, is also mitigating some of the property tax burden for those counties, cities and other municipalities that have — for decades — subsidized medical care for the uninsured at publicly-owned health facilities.

Though the Affordable Care Act passed into law in 2010, conservatives continue to fight it at every opportunity: in the courts, in state legislatures, and in Congress. It's a safe bet that as the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination kicks off, a cavalcade of Republican hopefuls will torment innocent Iowans with tales of how they've fought Obamacare in the past and why they're the ones who can finally drive a stake through its…
