Health Care Act Two Years Old

The Affordable Care Act was signed into law two years ago this week.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says since then access to healthcare especially in rural communities, has expanded along with moves that will mean lower costs.

Critics believe the Act is costing the country money, but Vilsack says it will do the opposite in the long run.

“The congressional budget office has determined that this act will reduce the federal deficit by over one hundred billion dollars during the course of the next decade and by more than a trillion dollars over the next ten years.

He says that’s because the law emphasizes prevention by making checkups and screenings more affordable.

Vilsack says rural Americans who in the past could not afford insurance and had limited access are now seeing improvements in their local healthcare facilities.
