This project intends to examine policy aimed at healthcare in the United States, specifically, the impacts of the Affordable Care Act. The goal of universal healthcare is a relatively new concept to America, and as such, it has a number of controversial issues. The impacts of the affordable care act have been hotly contested by political pundits from its initial implementation. The focus of this study is on the impacts of the ACA and how it has impacted the ability of Americans to not only obtain health insurance, but also make use of affordable health services. By reviewing scholarly literature, empirical data and current policy, this study intends to analyze the effects of the ACA on the citizens of America.
