Abstract:     
This article examines the contributions of Senator Edward Kennedy to health care reform over his Senate career. It examines his attempts, beginning in 1971, to enact national health care reform and considers political impediments to comprehensive reform in the U.S. Senator Kennedy's contributions to health reform are considered, from HIPAA to drug regulation.

The article further examines the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's key features in promoting access to health care, arguing that Senator Kennedy's legislative skill and constant push for reform was a significant source of pressure that contributed to the eventual passage of the PPACA.
