March 23 marks the one-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act being signed into law. During this year, Rep. Anthony Weiner has been leading efforts to move forward and fighting attempts to unravel the law by championing its benefits: making prescription drugs more affordable for seniors; allowing health insurance coverage for young adults; providing tax credits for small businesses to buy insurance for their employees; ending the unfair insurance company practice of denying care because of pre-existing conditions; and covering millions of Americans with health insurance.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (NY-9) discusses moving forward as the Affordable Care Act turns one. Following his keynote, Rep. Weiner took questions from the audience, moderated by Neera Tanden, Chief Operating Officer of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
