The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
This act is turning 4 years old but according to Pew Research Press, it has not been able to gather the popularity is was expected to gather when it was enacted. The act has elicited sharp differences from the democrats and the republicans with not more than 53% of the citizens interviewed during the research showing optimist that the act will finally work and not more than 41% with the opinion that the act is not likely to work as expected. An approximate 72% of the Democrats are optimistic that the act will work while only 8% of the Republicans believe in the act. These sharp differences are as a result of the fact that most Americans believe that it is the duty of the government to provide health care while others do not subscribe to that view. That is why those who do not believe the government should provide affordable health care do not support the act.
