I was researching Obamacare and TRICARE, just to make sure. According to the Congressional Research Service, "TRICARE and VA Health Care: Impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)", "The TRICARE Affirmation Act (H.R. 4887; P.L. 111-159), signed into law on April 26, 2010, affirms that TRICARE satisfies the minimum acceptable coverage requirement in PPACA." Within the act (now law), it states, "To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to ensure that health coverage provided by the Department of Defense is treated as minimal essential coverage."
THE LAW: 17 USC 101, A "work of the United States Government" is a work prepared by an officer or employee of the United States Government as part of that person's official duties.
THE LAW: 17 USC 105, "Copyright protection under this title is not available for ANY WORK OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT..." [EMPHASIS ADDED]
THE LAW: 17 USC 201, "Works Made for Hire. — In the case of a work made for hire, the employer or other person for whom the work was prepared is considered the author for purposes of this title..." [ADDED: IF THE US GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS TO SOMEONE TO DO SOME, COPYRIGHT AUTHOR IS THE US GOVERNMENT AND 17 USC 101, 17 USC 105 APPLIES].
If there is a URL in this post, and it doesn't work, it is because AARP hasn't updated their site to handle Firefox 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 as of 25 Mar 2012. This site will not allow the insertion of hyperlinks with Firefox Firefox 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12. For me, I can get the dialog to show, but it will not allow me to type, or copy/paste in a URL. Other members have reported this issue also with Firefox 4, but it was fixed; per BethCM: 22 OCT 2011, 04:01:32 PM EST.
Since I use Firefox 11 and the add link doesn't work, you will need to highlight, copy and paste the URL into the addressbar.
