Treaty or Not? The Affordable Health Care Act & Indian Country - Ep. 1 "...And Tribes"

The reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act had been stuck in Congress for nearly twenty years. So when health care reform moved front and center it became an opportunity to get that done -- and to add tribes to the larger discussion. The result, says National Congress of American Indians Executive Director Jaqueline Peta, is the Affordable Care Act, a law that's "very good" for Indian Country.
