The New Health Care Law


Hour 1

Last Thursday, certain measures of the new health care law – The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – went into effect.  We’ll look at how the changes may affect you.  Also, why is there still so much confusion about the law and so little public support for it.   Marty talks with ROBERT FIELD, a professor of law and public health at Drexel University and MARY AGNES CAREY, a senior correspondent with Kaiser Health News about the new legislation, its impact, and the legal threats it may face.
