I recommend this quick and interesting pop quiz on the Affordable Care Act, the new health care reform law often called “Obamacare.”
There are only 10 questions, all True/False, and they have to do with major features of the law and things mentioned prominently in news coverage, so it can be considered an easy test. Parakeets picking answers randomly would be expected to get half the questions right on average. Despite that, when the quiz was administered to a random selection of Americans, only about 59% managed to do better than the hypothetical parakeets.
I managed to get all the questions right, and I’d feel awfully smug about that except that I also took the same outfit’s Medicare pop quiz and scored only 60 percent. But at least I wasn’t beat by a parakeet.
I had a perfect score as well – 10 for 10.
