This landmark law, passed after progressives and Presidents tried for 100 years to do health care reform right, expands coverage to 30 million people and eliminates the worst insurance company abuses for those of us with coverage. It stops insurance companies from denying our care and jacking up our rates whenever they please. It puts us well on the way to quality, affordable health care for all.
