When Former President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in

2010, my first and most overwhelming emotion was relief.


Not because I or any of my family members needed the law - we're among the

fortunate who have never had to go without decent health insurance. Rather,

my relief was that of a future physician who could stop fearing that giving

a critical diagnosis might sentence a patient to a lifetime of skyrocketing

insurance premiums or dropped coverage.
