Obamacare turns 4: Will anyone notice?
This Sunday marks the fourth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act becoming law – and the public has almost never been more bored with health care news. The public's attention to health care has fallen off sharply since the all the technology problems nearly doomed HealthCare.gov and the president's health care program, according to a new Pew Research Center report. Just 23 percent of those surveyed in March said that they were "closely tracking" health care news, which is down from 33 percent in November 2013. Before that, interest in health care news had been steadily dropping off since the Supreme Court's June 2012 decision on Obamacare.
