People will embrace public health care as the solution for a better quality of life. But soon after issues such as the quality provided, increased expense, lack of responsibility, and inflated private insurance will come to light. A real solution is needed to raise the quality of life, a solution that doesn't just throw money at the problem.

Along with private practices, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will affect hospitals all across the country. Hospitals nationwide agreed with the government after the ACA was passed to accept one hundred fifty five billion dollars in cuts over the next ten years(Naether,“What Doctors May Not Know About Obamacare – And What They Need to Know”).
