Health Care Reform: What It Is, Why It's Necessary, How It Works

Health Care Reform: What It Is, Why It's Necessary, How It Works

You won’t have to worry about going broke if you get sick.
 
We will start to bring the costs of health care under control.
 
And we will do all this while reducing the federal deficit.
 
That is the promise of the Affordable Care Act. But from the moment President Obama signed the bill into law in 2010, a steady and mounting avalanche of misinformation about the ACA has left a growing majority of Americans confused about what it is, why it’s necessary, and how it works. If you’re one of them, buy this book. From how to tame the twin threats of rising costs and the increasing number of uninsured to why an insurance mandate is good for your health, Health Care Reform dispels false fears by arming you with facts.
