HHS Celebrates 12 Years of Affordable Care Act

Multiple department leaders release statements.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law on March 23, 2010, and many officials in the Department of Health and Human Services have released statements to celebrate its twelfth anniversary. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine, and multiple administrators joined Secretary Xavier Becerra in the commemoration of the health care act.

“As a Member of Congress in 2010, I helped draft and pass the historic legislation,” stated Secretary Becerra. “As the Attorney General of California, I defended the law before the Supreme Court. And now, as Secretary, I will continue to build on the success of the Affordable Care Act and advance our Administration’s key priorities of expanding health care access, reducing health care costs, closing health disparities, and strengthening behavioral health.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they strategize public health policy.
  • For Secretary Becerra to seek God’s direction as he heads his department.
  • That U.S. health care officials have discernment as they make decisions and recommendations.
