According to the article, the biggest flaws are: insurance companies deny participating in Obamacare because there are fewer people than expected signing up; this means there would be more insurance costs for everyone; which then furthers less participation. On the other hand, predictably premiums are going up, but also government subsides: but only for those who are not already covered by the Medicaid expansion.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
