LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Affordable Care Act is a hot topic this election, and one group is hoping to clear up misconceptions about the law often referred to as "Obamacare."
"Know Your Care" is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the people of Wisconsin about the bill.
They stopped at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for a public forum and debate of the issue.
"As we go around and travel the state, I don't know that there's so much concerns as there are questions about what the law is and specifically, how it affects individuals," said Doug Hill of "Know Your Care."
"One in three kids in our state is covered by Badger Care and that program has been stabilized and maintained through the affordable care act," said Sara Eskrich of the Wisconsin Council on Children & Families.
Tonight's event included a discussion of measures already implemented, like coverage for birth control that went into effect this month.
The bulk of the bill's provisions take effect in 2014.
