Description/Abstract

My paper, titled "Legality and Constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act", analyzes potential problems with the legislation known more commonly as "Obamacare". Three main issues I have identified pertaining to the Act are: the tax penalty, issues with contraception, and the expansion of Medicaid. I have also analyzed the constitutionality of the Act and compared it to similar health care plans internationally.
