MHP: How Health Care Reform Is Game-Changing

The Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. Melissa Harris-Perry and guests talk about what that actually means for Americans.


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.
