Federal health care law promises coverage for all, but at a price

Jason Saving

Economic Letter, 2011, vol. 6, issue mar, No 2

Abstract: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as health care reform, was signed into law last March. The measure ostensibly provides health care coverage to almost all Americans while simultaneously reducing the deficit by $143 billion over 10 years and by a greater amount over the longer term.
