Media Genres Of Obamacare

Decent Essays

I decided to review different media genres on Obamacare. I know many people disagree with the act because it brings rates up, but many need it to get the help they need. For this essay, I reviewed a YouTube video posted by a famous author, a random blog post I came across and a scholarly article off of the Uvu library website.

He finishes by saying there are other ways other than health insurance to help people. He does not list examples. For the usage of his media, he may have decided to write this as a blog post because he can always go back and edit his words. It also is a very easy to post media, he just needs to type and post.

If someone were to read this they would only get opinions and bias evidence that could change daily. On top of that, it doesn't exactly explain Obamacare and it effects so it may leave the reader confused. In the scholarly article, The many consequences of repealing Obamacare, by Merrill Goozner. They explain and go into depth on what Obamacare is, how it affects the government and people and how it affects different parts of society. She/he claims that if we repeal the Obamacare act not only will many Americans not have access to healthcare, but that prices for health care will go up regardless. Meaning employers will have to cover the cost.
