about this item

"Few laws have generated as much intense emotional and ongoing controversy as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The law is the culmination of a hundred years of debate, discussion, and attempts at offering near-universal coverage in the United States. Lessons learned from the past, fleeting political majorities, and new policy imperatives to improve quality and reduce ever-rising costs created an opportune policy window in 2009-2010 to pass one of the most expansive - and potentially impactful - pieces of social legislation in our nation's history.

This is the first reference book to provide a detailed assessment of the Affordable Care Act, explaining the realities and myths surrounding one of the most divisive political struggles in recent U.S. history.
