How many of our problems are caused by government, and by which kind of government? Take a little quiz…. (More)

President Ronald Reagan famously said, “Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem.”

What Reagan didn’t say is which party in government is the problem. His line is so familiar that it has come to be seen as ‘the truth’ by many of “We the People.” This quiz is designed to help you decide, based on information and facts, if you’d like to be more specific about which party is your problem.

For the sake of this quiz, you agree as a player that telling the truth matters and that facts matter. A good story may feel good but if it is lie, you’ve been conned. The real question is, “If facts matter, can you change your mind?”

The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act recently upheld by the Supreme Court is still widely misunderstood by many voters. Tonight’s quiz uses a few questions from Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation with the hope that you will do two things. One, take the full ten question quiz and two, share the quiz with your friends, families and coworkers. The more accurate information that we progressives can get out there, the easier it will be for President Obama and Democratic candidates to run on the benefits of Obamacare.
