Intro Sample...


In this paper, a proposal to amend the Affordable Care Act, Title IV, Subtitle B, Section 4101 was made. The amendment proposed is to allow the grant given to people and facilities to use that grant for health purposes rather than to have it focus solely on making the facility itself impressive looking, because it does not matter whether a facility looks good if the care it provides is horrible.

This section focuses on the wellness of health centers that were in or near a school. So it is mainly for students, but it also covers people who reside near these establishments. This act seems to be very helpful particularly for the elderly and students who are not able to cover high quality insurance. They are also hoping to prevent illnesses altogether by controlling illnesses from reaching an epidemic in the community. It all seems to be very helpful except for the fact that it only really affects schools or cities with larger populations. So the towns without a high capita rate do not receive any assistances from this part of the Affordable Care Act. According to Californiahotline.com, it states that, “although the ACA provided 30 million dollars to build ...

Pirating works online is the same as shoplifting a video tape, book, or computer program from a department store.
