Celebrating Reform

Many people around the state and nation are celebrating the six month anniversary of health reform.

Yesterday, President Obama met with Americans from across the country who will benefit from the new law, and today the Administration released state-by-state reports detailing the impact of the Affordable Care Act and a revamped website – www.WhiteHouse.gov/HealthReform — which includes information on the impact of the law and stories from Americans in all 50 states.

Here in California, the folks at Health Care for America Now (HCAN) have assembled a list of events around the state marking the six-month milestone. If you’re nearby and have the time, you’re encouraged to join the celebrations.
