Puzzling over Obamacare The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- Obamacare -- is 2,700 pages of legislation that re-engineers health care in America.
Since the law was enacted, 13,000 pages of new regulations have been issued by the Obama administration.
Is it little wonder, then, that confusion reigns when it comes to the content of the act?
In the confusion, however, there is profit for author Nick J. Tate.
Tate has penned, "The ObamaCare Survival Guide: The Affordable Care Act and What it Means for You and Your Healthcare."
Tate's guide details how taxpayers stand to foot the bill for nearly half of Obamacare's funding in the form of new taxes and fees, as well as individual and employer penalties.
For example, the guide reveals how currently insured Americans will be affected by rising premium costs and other factors.
It also exposes new fees for prescription-drug users, along with new taxes for the affluent.
But more than that, the guide explains how Americans can protect themselves against the harmful aspects of Obamacare.
Tate has been rewarded for his effort.
His guide hit the New York Times best-seller list being released Sunday. Last week, it reached No. 4 on Barnes & Noble's list of the Top 100 best-selling books. And before that, it had already become a bestseller on Amazon.
The Newsmax website calls Tate's guide "the first and best road map for you to understand the new law. Every American is affected by Obamacare, making this book essential to you and your family."
Tate has been so successful that he might consider following up with another guide: "How to survive the remaining years of the Obama administration."
