This week marks the 11th anniversary of Barack Obama’s signing of the Affordable Care Act, something Joe Biden, then the vice president, now the president, famously described as a “Big F-ing Deal.”

He was right. It is one of the signature moments in American health care policy, along with the passage of Medicare and Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program and the Medicare prescription drug benefit. Political Theater host Jason Dick and CQ Roll Call Health Editor Rebecca Adams discuss those big moments and their public health and political effects in the latest podcast.
