DescriptionThe Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, was the culmination of the Obama Administration's and the 111th Congress' nearly year-long push to enact sweeping health care reform in the United States, a cause championed by national leaders since Theodore Roosevelt.

The law's provisions are designed be phased in over several years, with the most significant structural changes to the health care system taking effect in 2014. All provisions of the law will be in effect by the end of 2018.

This is a place for discussion of issues surrounding the new law, including its implementation, effects, ongoing controversies, calls for total or partial legislative repeal and court challenges to the law.
