As Affordable Care Act heads to Supreme Court, a smattering of views

I am no expert on the Affordable Care Act. SO, at the two-year anniversary of President Obama signing the bill into law, I’ve scouted around for a few articles I think give good merit to both sides of the coin.

From the Washington Post, reporter Sarah Kliff wrote about how the health care overhaul has changed the way hospitals are reimbursed by Medicare for procedures. The changes, she writes, have resulted in 5 percent savings for Medicare, in higher standards for doctors and specialists, and higher financial rewards for those doctors who are the best at what they do.

From the Wall Street Journal, reporters Janet Adamy and Louise Radnofsky wrote about how public opinion has barely budged since the bill was first signed into law two years ago. They write that some of the law’s changes have been shown to be largely positive; others, largely negative; and still more are yet to be fully implemented. The average poll shows 50.5 percent of Americans are opposed to the overhaul.

From Bloomberg, Heidi Przybyla wrote about how groups and individuals seeking the partial or full repeal of the Affordable Care Act have out-spent supporters of the law by a three-to-one margin ($204 million to $57 million).
