Summary
President Obama and the Democratic leaders of Congress achieved in March 2010 a victory that has eluded lawmakers for seventy-five years: an overhaul of America's health care system. But despite the incessant and often rancorous debate that preceded the bill's passage, most Americans still don't understand what is in the final legislative package. Landmark provides a comprehensible summary of the legislation and examines the impacts it will have on Americans, on health care providers and insurers, and on the health care system as a whole - as well as a fascinating behind-the-scenes narrative of how the legislation came together
