On March 24, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law historic healthcare legislation. Much debate and misinformation continues to be disseminated about the effects of this bill. Here are some facts that every American should know about healthcare reform.
Americans Will See Immediate Benefits As a Result of Health Reform
- After nearly a century of trying, and after more than a year of extensive debate, the President will sign into law today a health reform bill that brings down health care costs for American families and small businesses, expands coverage to millions of Americans and ends the worst practices of insurance companies. And it begins to do so this year.
- After today, all that is left to be done is for the Senate to pass technical corrections to this legislation. But once this bill is signed, Americans will begin to see significant benefits take effect this year, with other important reforms following shortly after.
