III. Summaries and Full Text of ACA
The "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", commonly called the "Affordable Care Act" (ACA) or "Obamacare", is a federal statute that was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010. The act is aimed at 1) increasing the overall rate of health insurance coverage for Americans and 2) reducing the overall cost of health care. It provides a number of mechanisms (including mandates, subsidies, and tax credits) to employers and individuals to increase the overall coverage rate in the United States. (Reference)
