(WUSA9) --- We're tracking the new information unfolding everyday on the Affordable Care Act.

1. Forbes: The two Obamacare Charts that No One's Talking about

Contributor Dan Munro provides two charts to make his case:

Obamacare does lower the number of people uninsured. However, the new healthcare law makes minimal impact on lowering the National Healthcare Expenditure (NHE) or how much money our country spends on healthcare each year.

2. CNN Money: Obamacare website's confusing prices

Healthcare.gov gives low ball estimates on insurance plans under Obamacare.

The website's price browser doesn't consider the entire picture, when you're window shopping for healthcare plans under the Affordable Care Act. Instead, the price browser generates a health plan cost that may be lower than what you may end up paying.  

Consider three factors that may impact your final price:

i. Premiums based on your age

ii. Out of pocket expenses like deductibles

iii. Any qualified subsidies for you 

3. Singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had a little fun with Obamacare at Wednesday night's Country Music Awards.

Watch the video above to see how the singers got big cheers from the crowd during their opening act.
