Republicans have generally opposed the legislation and attempted to obstruct it in parts or repeal it altogether. Democrats have tended to support it, defending it against the opposition but wary of some of its problems. Patients and families are caught in the middle as the debate heats up in election years.How Obamacare is Unsustainable is the first book to take an evidence-based approach to assessment of the good and bad about this signature domestic legislation of the Obama presidency after five years of experience. The evidence already shows that the three major aims of the ACA—to provide near-universal access to health care, to contain costs and make health care affordable, and to improve the quality of U.S. health care—are not being met. Evidence and experience show that the ACA’s approach to health care reform will not work. As it fails, the big question is what next? Th e case is made—on economic, social and moral grounds—that a single-payer improved Medicare for all system will meet the ongoing goals of reform. Th is book explains how all Americans can gain universal access to comprehensive health care, paying less than we do now, with more value and less bureaucracy.
