Road-Weary ACA Here to Stay

The Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment deadline has passed, and the total exceeded expectations, despite a rocky start.

The bickering between the critics and the administration continues, according to an editorial in the Ocala Star-Banner, but the fact remains that millions of Americans who couldn’t get coverage before now have insurance because of the law. 
The success is even more startling, considering how hard opponents in Florida worked to stand in the way of the ACA. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
