The Washington Post's must-read guide to the health care overhaul

After a year-long political war, President Obama and the Democratic leaders of Congress achieved in March 2010 a victory that has eluded lawmakers for seventy-five years: an overhaul of America's health care system. But despite the incessant and often rancorous debate that preceded the bill's passage, most Americans still don't understand what is in the final legislative package or what reform willóor won'tómean for them.

In Landmark, the national reporting staff of The Washington Post pierces through the confusion, examining the new law's likely impact on us all: our families, doctors, hospitals, health care providers, insurers, and other parts of a health care system that has grown to occupy one-sixth of the U.S. economy.

Landmark's behind-the-scenes narrative reveals how just how close the law came to defeat, as well as the compromises and deals that President Obama and his Democratic majority in Congress made in achieving what has eluded their predecessors for the past seventy-five years: A legislative package that expands and transforms American health care coverage.

Landmark is an invaluable resource for anyone eager to understand the changes coming our way.
