        A health care revolution. So Bernie is right. And the good news is that Hillary is suggesting a limited “public option” for those over 50 years old. She is evidently hearing Bernie’s message, and recognizing the inexorable direction of the future. No matter who wins in November, it is time for a health care revolution. Ten years after the landmark legislation, Ezekiel Emanuel leads a crowd of experts, policy-makers, doctors, and scholars as they evaluate the Affordable Care Act's history so March , the Affordable Care Act officially became one of the seminal laws determining American health care.

Mad in America’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care in the United States (and abroad).
