Description: 
A graphic explanation of the PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) as an informed, opinionated, and immediately accessible explanation of why health care reform is essential, why the legislation Congress passed is our best bet for solving the problem, and why it would be disastrous if we revoked it. Health Care Reform explains the stakes, means, and consequences with the immediacy of a comics format. Gruber, an economist and the director of the Health Care Program at the National Bureau of Economic Research, was a key architect of the health care reform effort in Massachusetts and is a member of the board now implementing it.--Excerpted from publisher
