Happy Second Birthday, ACA!
Friday, March 23, marks the second anniversary of President Obama signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. This health care reform law streamlines America’s complicated health care system while expanding heath care to 33 million Americans. While polls show that about as many people view the law favorably as unfavorably, there is a stark divide drawn on political lines.
This week, as we celebrate the law’s second birthday and gear up for next week’s Supreme Court hearings, we will post a blog each day on different aspects of the health reform law, such as its effect on women, children and people with disabilities, and provide links to different educational resources so you can find out how the law affects you and your family. Also, check out the RAC’s health care resource page for a wealth of information regarding the law.
Until our next health care post, take a look at this video to learn how the Affordable Care Act works, whom it affects, and why health care reform is necessary.
