maintaining this amendment ( Freedom of speech, 2010). Although there are some restrictions on freedom of speech such as abuse or exposure, it is important to teach people the things that can be said, instead of telling them what they can’t say. In order to correct the Civil Rights of 1964, is to remind everyone of what it entails. Especially to reiterate that it says “ equal protection under the law regardless of religion, race, or any other personal preferences” (Civil rights act 1964, 2016) . It needs to be known that no one can be exempt if they fail to comply. If this act was enforced by everyone everywhere this would be correct itself. The problem is that some of our authorities that are supposed to enforce this act are the ones that are not complying with what it entails. This goes from the United States President all the way down to the neighborhood watch. Every level of any type of enforcement should be required to go through anti-discrimination training. Speaking of “no favorites”, the Affordable Care Act is the perfect example.

PROS AND CONS OF AMERICAS DEOMOCRACY 4 Federalism The Affordable Care Act “leaves the states no choice but to participate in the expanded Medicaid program, because the ACA also requires all persons; including needy persons to obtain health insurance, and because Congress created no alternative to Medicaid for the needy” (Schwinn, 2012). States are required to participate, if they tried to decline, they would have to find funding from other resources. “If states reasonably decline to participate in Medicaid they would lose the massive federal funding from the largest grant-in-aid program in existence” (Schwinn, 2012). They would have to pay for its own expensive insurance option for its poor” (Schwinn, 2012). “By reducing costs, maintenance, encouraging prevention, and promotion of health are essential elements of promoting the health of a nation”, this is how the Affordable care act provides affordable health care (Mokhtari, 2016). This act has been known as a necessary consequence and a sweeping reform of the nation’s healthcare system. Since the Affordable Care Act requires everyone to obtain healthcare coverage, it has been said that this act is “violating this care principle of federalism” (Schwinn, 2012). It is said that under the ACA the “universal coverage provision would lead to inexorably to a power which congress could interfere with all manner of policies traditionally within the states central” (Schwinn, 2012). Health insurers are required to offer insurance coverage “to everyone including people with preexisting conditions, and prohibited from varying premiums by health issues” (Levitt, 2017). These insurers have also been required to cover all additional costs involved with providing low income market place enrollees” (Levitt, 2017). This is a problem for insurers and the insured.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
