The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is one of the hottest issues heading into President Barack Obama's second term as president. Passed in early 2010 amidst extreme controversy and general public negativity, the bill still has yet to be fully understood by laypeople and legal experts alike.
Because of President Obama's re-election, the focus of supporters and detractors alike has quickly shifted from a possible total repeal of the bill to the monumental task of beginning to understand what exactly is contained in these 1000 pages of legal code. Each new piece of regulation being released into the public sphere pertaining to certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act necessitates a look back to the original document to determine 1) the original intent and 2) the constitutionality of the regulation and the bill itself.
This ebook version presents a beautifully designed full text of the Affordable Care Act as well as the reconciliation act including all amendments. It includes a massive table of contents with links to each section of the bill and reconciliation act. Also included are embedded page numbers and margin notes from the original text so that those who wish to dig deeper into the law and those laws which it directly amends can do so with ease.
