With Affordable Care Act Upheld, What Now?

by Dan Barrett / /

NTU Foundation, the education and research arm of the National Taxpayers Union, examined what legislative options opponents and supporters of the President’s health care overhaul have available to them right now. With the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Act (PPACA), these measures, already introduced in the 112th Congress, offer a glimpse into how elected officials may change PPACA.

Highlighted in the latest Taxpayer’s Tab, NTUF has identified 45 bills that would directly affect PPACA, including:

  • 9 exclusive repeal bills
  • 7 repeal and replace with a different system bills
  • 25 bills that would eliminate or change specific provisions of PPACA
  • 4 expansion bills that would increase government control of health care

As always, NTUF offers the costs and savings associated with enacting these measures.
