Do You Care About the Affordable Care Act?: Is it Ethical?
There has been and currently (January 25 2011) is much controversy over President Obama's administration Affordable Care Act (so called "Obamacare") which was passed by Congress and signed by the President into law last year. At present there is much talk about getting rid of this Act and indeed the House of Representatives passed legislation recently to do so. There is much controversy about the politics of the act but I fear not much discussion about the ethics related to it. Isn't the purpose of the law is to provide the best healthcare available to all the people in the United States (beneficence) and to be fair (justice) in the distribution and management of the
rules governing the practice of the law to all the stakeholders? It is.. but some still wonder "is it?"
What I would like my visitors to write on this thread is their understanding of the Affordable Care Act in terms of whether they feel it is in everyones best interest or whether important parts are missing or parts of the law are unfair. What is your understanding? What are your suggestions? Do you care about the Affordable Care Act? ..Maurice.
