Year One of the Obamacare Era

By Avik Roy

One year ago this week — March 23, 2010 — President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. Joe Biden called it a “big [flipping] deal.” Enthusiasts of the law predicted that Obamacare would reduce the deficit, save hundreds of thousands of lives, significantly improve national life expectancy, dramatically reduce medical bankruptcies, and massively improve infant mortality. I even recall a New Republic editorial arguing that the passage of PPACA would mean no one would ever again have to die of cancer.
