On Sunday, Dr. Herbert Smitherman of Wayne State University School of Medicine and The Hill's Karen Finney joined Melissa Harris-Perry on her MSNBC show to talk about the Affordable Care Act and the care it provides.

In a discussion about the differences it will make for the actual health care of Americans as well as for cost containment, they covered the community health care and preventative provisions of the law, how it will address the shortage of primary care physicians, and the funds it will provide for research and tracking and public health training.
