The Affordable Care Act or aka ObamaCare has been a lightning rod of public policy for over 6 years. At once lauded and derided as a takeover of the United States health care market. At different times and different settings both claims were made by the Obama administration. It remains to be seen what the true impact of the ACA will be until after the 2016 election, not merely because it will take a new President to understand if Obamacare will actually stick, but also because many of the most painful “features” of the act don’t kick in until later this decade.
Many will always remember the lies told to pass this legislation many more may certainly forget. President Obama is right to focus on this act as his legacy because so much of his political method is wrapped up in it’s passage and implementation.
