In America the affordability and equality of access to healthcare is a crucial topic of debate when it comes to one's understanding of healthcare reform. The ability for a sick individual to attain proper treatment for their ailments has reached the upper echelons of government. Public outcry for a change in the handling of health insurance laws has aided in the establishment of the Affordable Healthcare Law (AHCL) to ensure the people of America will be able to get the medical attention they deserve as well as making that attention more affordable, as the name states. Since its creation, the AHCL has undergone scrutiny towards its effects on the government and its people; nevertheless, the new law must not be dismantled due to its function as a cornerstone of equal-opportunity healthcare, and if such a removal is allowed, there will be possibly detrimental effects on taxes, the economy, and poor people. Taxes in relation to the new healthcare reform is a prominent topic when one examines the supporting and opposing sides of the law.

As of 2014 we are presented with a new health care plan for America. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare, was brought up by President Obama in 2010 and was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2012.
