Last March was the 6th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). According to this report from WhiteHouse.gov, 20 million people now have healthcare coverage and that 4.3 million jobs have been created.
This report by Economics21.org, however, said that “not all insurance is good insurance . Unnecessary over-insurance promotes overutilization and drives up costs for everyone.” The report further argues that the ACA was introduced after the recession — the economy always adds jobs after a recession.
This chart from Kaiser Family Foundation shows us how deeply divided the public has remained on the health reform law since it was passed in March 2010.
