Affordable Health Care Act
Today marks the second anniversary of the day the Affordable Health Care Act was signed into law. As someone who went without health insurance while raising a child and had to weigh the cost of a doctor's visit with how much money was in the bank, I celebrate this step towards universal health care. It will of course be interesting to watch the developments in the Supreme Court next week as they hear challenges to the law. It is a sad state this country is in that the American ideal of rugged individualism and innovation trumps the collective need to take care of its citizens.
