Affordable Care Act Ruled Constitutional

SCOTUS Rules Affordable Care Act Constitutional– a Look Back

Seal_of_the_United_States_Supreme_Court.svgToday the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled that the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) is constitutional. As Republicans vow to press on and work toward repeal of the whole act, progressives vow to work toward a public option and eventually universal healthcare coverage.

Over the years, The American Journal of Medicine has published dozens of articles on healthcare reform. On this historic day, here are a few of the more recent articles.
