    How the Affordable Care Act Drove Down Personal Bankruptcy

    So, let's repeal it and see if bankruptcies go back up. It's a social experiment, after all.

    A bout a quarter of the way down, we read:

    From there, it discusses the economy.

    The reasons are discussed at some length in the article. The conclusion is that the ACA is a factor, the economy isa factor, and the bankruptcy law is a factor.

    The conclusion is that the ACA played a large part in the decline.

    Check it out for yourself.
