<p>The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law seven years ago today. Since the law’s health insurance expansions went into effect, millions of Americans have gained affordable coverage as well as improved access to needed care.</p><p>Today the House of Representatives may vote on a bill that would undo much of this progress. Rather than building on the successes of the ACA, the legislation would—according to the Congressional Budget Office and others—put health insurance and health care out of reach for millions of people once again.
