Health Care in America has recently changed by President Obama and reform and changes are heading our way. The Affordable health care act or better known as “Obama Care” is changing the way each American family access and our provided health care. America prior to the induction of this bill had about 15% of its population uninsured, and with one of the most profitable health care systems in place America leads the world in medical advances and technology. Those posses a serious problem, which is how does a country have such success in health care finically but its people remain sick? President Obama has changed that as of March 2010 by placing a Health care system that is going to change the current one to essentially benefit all
“OBAMACARE” AND THE UNINSURED “ObamaCare” and Insurance Coverage of the Uninsured in the United States Problem: Brief Description of, and Justification for Choosing the Health Policy Issue I’m sure you have heard many debates, discussions, and opinions about the law ObamaCare. Do you know what this law was implemented for? Do you know why some could support it or want it repealed? Do you realize how much money one could leave the taxpayers to pay for their unpaid medical bills because they could not afford insurance? “ObamaCare, officially called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) but more often called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for short, reforms the health insurance industry and the American health care system as a whole” (ObamaCare Facts). Barack Obama and the Supreme Court ruling in 2012 gave Americans better rights and more protection for access to universal affordable quality healthcare to the uninsured population. ObamaCare was not designed to change the way one gets insurance, but to alleviate the national health care crisis of forty-four million uninsured Americans. I chose to do my research paper over this particular topic because I wanted to learn more information on how the working middle class could obtain insurance for them and/or their families. I also wanted to know how people who are uninsured could have access to ObamaCare and what ObamaCare actually does for the uninsured.
The Affordable Care Act, signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010, fails to reach the intended goal of being more affordable for those in the population who cannot afford health insurance. The Affordable Care Act affects taxes, the out of pocket spending as well as the national debt. Now, considering the word “affordable” is in the name of the act itself, it is very contradicting that the Affordable Care Act is not very “affordable”. Affordable has a very different meaning if you were to ask people across the nation. People in Montana for example, the average salary in the state of Montana is $37,575, while in the state of New York, the average salary is $52,330. People in Montana would see $25,000 a lot differently than people
Imagine if you were a doctor, owned your own practice, and your clientele were of a satisfying quantity due to the personal relationships that you shared with every one of them. What would you do if that quality of business was taken right out from under your feet due to the change in law? That is what Dr. Joel L. Strom talks about in “The Right Way to Repeal and Replace Obamacare,” as he explains what Obamacare has done to the health-care system in America, and what Republicans need to do to fix it through his eyes. When the Obamacare bill passed in 2010 and began in 2014, it was something that grew from what was originally rejected during the Clinton Administration in the mid to late 90’s. When the bill passed, it wasn’t due to Republican voters, but solely Democratic. Strom shows compassion towards the needs of his fellow Americans and concerns of his medical colleagues, but he is also a Republican which may show a little bias.
Empirical Article Affordable Heath Care Act The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll Approaches the polling process with a representative nature that does its best to promote the affordable Health Care Act. It seems to attempt a focus on the lack of knowledge that people have about the affordable healthcare act. Examples of this include the March 31st deadline “As the clock ticks down on open enrollment for new coverage options under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that six in ten of the uninsured are unaware of the March 31 deadline to sign up for coverage. When reminded of the deadline and the fine for not getting covered, half of those who lack coverage as of mid-March say they plan to remain uninsured”(Kaiser Poll).

Candace Jones Professor Dame HPHM-4311 11 September 2017 The road to the Affordable Care Act has been difficult and extensive based on past health reform attempts by previous administrations. You can date back to the Truman administration after World War II, this was an initial attempt to increase healthcare accessibility. President Truman proposed universal health insurance, but Congress didn’t pass the Bill. President Eisenhower didn’t make efforts for universal health insurance like his predecessor, but his administration made slight health reform proposals such as funding healthcare for military dependents and health insurance benefits for social security dependents. The Kennedy Administrations laid the framework for Medicare by

“ObamaCare contains many benefits, especially for low and middle income families and business” (“ObamaCare: Pros and Cons”).

Obama care Obamacare is becoming a big deal in the united states and mainly texas. Obama said he was making health care his top priority.

The Future of Obamacare After one of the most grueling presidential races in American history, the populous candidate Donald Trump has been elected by the American people as our next president.

Trump should have no trouble doing this with the support of both the Republican senate and the Republican House. The consequences of what exactly will be done is a constantly argued topic and the phrase “repeal and replace Obamacare” has become a sort of buzzword in the media.
Health Care Controversy Obamacare may be one of the most debatable topics at the moment ever since 2010. For those who are still confused on what Obamacare is and how it works is understandable and common amongst Americans. Obamacare is also known as the Affordable Care Act.
