Things you need to know
Health care, specifically health insurance coverage for all, mental health care, and medical liability coverage for healthcare providers, is one of the most important domestic policies today.
The Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law on March 23, 2010, puts consumers in charge by ensuring access to quality, affordable health care. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has determined that the law will provide coverage to 32 million more people, or more than 94 percent of Americans, while lowering health care costs over the long term.
This historic legislation will reduce the deficit by $210 billion over the next ten years, with $1.2 trillion in additional deficit reduction in the following 10 years.
Although people share different views about the proper course of reform, the Affordable Care Act is a responsible approach to the challenges of the 21st Century and will repair much of what needs fixed so that our country remains strong and competitive.
