"... An informative and enticing book... Dawes combines his on-the-ground perspective with that of a longtime scholar and advocate for the reduction and elimination of health disparities."(Health Affairs)
"... This text is invaluable for its data alone. Dawes provides an informed perspective on U.S. health care, its evolution, and how the ACA ultimately became law; but ObamaCare is also a good information source, a neutral chronicle... I enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the act and U.S. health care policy."(Florida Bar)
"Putting the struggle to pass and implement the Affordable Care Act into historic perspective is a valuable contribution to understanding how difficult this effort has been and how significant the passage of health reform is for the citizens and the economy of our country. Daniel Dawes brings to life the extraordinary efforts of advocates, lawmakers, and citizens to increase access to quality health care for those who have long been marginalized and excluded. 150 years of Obamacare is an important and comprehensive volume."(Kathleen Sebelius, former Secretary of Health and Human Services)
"In this groundbreaking work, Dawes cuts through the noise by combining a history of past public policies and the health equity movement in America with his intimate knowledge of the ACA. He puts the law into context and powerfully explains what is at stake in the future for health reform."(Andrew Young, Ambassador)
"In extending health insurance coverage to millions of people, the Affordable Care Act is a game-changer for those with mental health and substance use disorders. Daniel Dawes tells the story of how the law was developed and passed―and its role in reshaping American health care. An illuminating study for anyone who cares about health equity!"(Patrick J. Kennedy, former Congressman, author of A Common Struggle)
" 150 Years of ObamaCare is a masterful and thought-provoking, must read, exploration of health reform past, present, and future."(Garth Graham, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Minority Health)
"This book tells the little-known and never publicized story about the work of congressional leaders―behind the scenes―to ensure that health equity would be a core goal of this landmark legislation. Daniel Dawes illuminates the nuts-and-bolts processes of getting it done and ensuring that certain communities would not again be left behind or left out!"(Donna Christensen, MD, former Congresswoman)
"Daniel Dawes provides an impressive, brilliant, evenhanded and deeply convincing narrative on why ObamaCare matters, how it impacts different groups in our society, and what is left to do. This book should be read by everyone interested in health care, politics, health policy, or civil rights."(Louis Sullivan, former Secretary of Health and Human Services and author, Breaking Ground: My Life in Medicine)
