As legislators and others comb through the massive health-care reform law, they are finding little-known provisions that will have a big impact on the American people and our economy.
For example, tucked into the health-care law is a provision that imposes a 3.8 percent federal tax on the proceeds from the sale of your home.
Sallie Mae, the company that processes student loan applications, just announced 2,500 layoffs because of a little-known provision in the health-care reform law that implements a government takeover of the student loan program.
What do these have to do with health care?
Nothing. Read on, because there is much, much more.

Yes, I knew about a lot of these. But whenever the issues were raised, those of us that were opposed to the health care reform bill on the table were called fear mongers, haters and tea baggers.
