“An important part of the Affordable Care Act will take place no matter what Congress does. It is already funded, you can’t shut it down.”
The above quote is from President Obama, speaking today on the prospect of how shutting down the government may affect the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. We have received numerous inquiries during the government shutdown talk on how it might affect Obamacare, but you can rest assured that there will be no effect on Obamacare implementation, as of now.
