Affordable Care Act/Obamacare

Signed into law on March 22, 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, is aimed at providing health care for all Americans. It offers options to citizens who are unable to afford private health coverage or are ineligible for health insurance through their employer and disqualified from public benefits. The act is considered to be the most extensive health care package since Medicaid and Medicare passed in 1965. In addition, this highly controversial law requires all citizens to have coverage by January 1, 2014 or face financial penalty.  (Photo: REUTERS/Jonathan Alcorn)
