A bunch of us were looking for links to the Health Care Bill, known as the ‘‘Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010’’, that recently became law.  I have put them up here on my site for easy reference.   Below are some links related to the measure:

First is the actual text of the law that was passed:     Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010 Text

I would comment, as someone who sometimes gets to read the actual text of Federal laws as part of their job, that doing so can be really dry reading.  It can also be pretty difficult to do, given the legalese in the text and the format of the document.  Nevertheless, if you are so inclined, happy reading.  If anyone has any questions about anything in it, feel free to send me a note and I’ll try to translate.  I’ll even do it in a non-partisan way.  That way, we can both learn something.

For those just looking for the highlights of what the Health Care Act has in it, the following summary was prepared on 23 March 2010 by the House Committees on Ways & Means, Energy & Commerce, and Education & Labor.  A summary of the Act:    Summary

Finally, courtesy of the blog Health Reform Watch, is a list of useful documents that attempt to describe and summarize the provisions of the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010.  Most were written by the House committees that actually wrote and edited the bill, so they should be an accurate reflection of what is in the Act.
