Healthcare Advocate Says Acceptance of Healthcare Overhaul Will Come When Benefits Go Into Effect
This week marks the one year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the controversial new health care law intended to overhaul the nation's healthcare system. Ahead this morning on the KUNM Call In Show, we'll take your questions, but first we'll hear from Ron Pollack, the founding Executive Director of Families USA, a non-profit organization advocating for equal access to high quality healthcare
A recent Gallup Poll showed Americans are just about split on whether or not they approve of the Affordable Care Act and nearly half of the people polled say they think the law will make the US healthcare system and their own health care situation worse. Pollack says this is no surprise.
