BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says PPACA has 'no place' in U.S.

GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says PPACA has 'no place' in U.S.

The 2010 health care reform law has no place in the United States, the Republican vice presidential nominee maintains.

“Obamacare comes to more than 2,000 pages of rules, mandates, taxes, fees and fines that have no place in a free country,” Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said in his acceptance speech Wednesday at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

“Obamacare” is a term critics frequently use to describe the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

While President Obama said the debate over the health care reform law is over, “that will come as news to the millions of Americans who will elect Mitt Romney at the expense of the elderly,” Rep. Ryan said.

Rep. Ryan described the law as a “long, divisive, all-or-nothing attempt to put the federal government in charge of health care.”

A recent report by the Congressional Budget Office estimated that by 2016 the health care reform law will reduce the number of uninsured by about 26 million, mainly through an expansion of Medicaid and providing federal health insurance premium subsidies to enable lower-income, uninsured individuals to buy coverage through state insurance exchanges.
