"There are two Affordable Care Acts. There's the legislation passed by Congress in 2009, and then there's the mythical Affordable Care Act – the perfidious 'government takeover' decried and demagogued by so many conservatives (and quite a few liberals).

Obama signs health care bill generations have 'hungered to see'
"Obama signed the health care bill into law today, calling its historic expansion of insurance coverage 'reforms that generations of Americans have fought for and marched for and hungered to see.'
'Today, after almost a century of trying -- today, after over a year of debate -- today, after all the votes have been tallied, health insurance reform becomes law in the United States of America,' Obama said at a White House ceremony packed with ecstatic supporters.
The law expands health insurance coverage for 32 million Americans, in part by preventing insurance companies from denying coverage to people who are sick or have pre-existing conditions. The law provides subsidies for some Americans to purchase insurance."
