Posted at 6:30 a.m. on Dec. 30, 2013
“Nearly four years after it was signed and after months of scrambling and uncertainty, President Obama’s landmark bid to guarantee Americans health security takes full effect Wednesday as the Affordable Care Act begins delivering healthcare coverage to millions nationwide,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
“How the law will ultimately work and whether it can endure remain unclear, though the fact that coverage will now be real for several million people will almost certainly change the debate over Republican efforts to repeal it.”
“While that broader political fight plays out, doctors, hospitals and pharmacies across the country are bracing for more confusion as patients struggle to understand their new coverage.”
Politico: “If Democrats get their way, the next phase of the Obamacare wars will see something unusual: a flood of success stories.”
