The Keckley Report

The Affordable Care Act Nine Years Later: What Have We Learned?
Paul Keckley“This Saturday, March 23, marks the 9th anniversary of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148) by the 111th Congress. Accompanied by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-152), the ACA represents the U.S. Health System's most consequential overhaul since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid as part of LBJ’s Great Society program in 1965.

“No legislation in modern history has been as divisive, misrepresented and misunderstood as the ACA. As 15 Democratic candidates launch their campaigns for the White House, it will once again be in the spotlight.”

Paul Keckley, March 18, 2019
