HEALTHCARE 4 Many states have tried and failed to pass legislation limiting the effects of Obamacare on citizens.

It would seem that the state government saw something in Obamacare that they disagreed with, not include laws made for or against Insurance exchanges, Medicaid expansion, non-binding resolution or memorials urging actions by federal or state government, nor measure still pending at the state level. Sadly, many of these laws were overturned at the federal level forcing States and all citizens to participate in Obamacare. Despite all of this evidence it would seem that Americans are happy with Obamacare. At least according to a poll done from January 12th to the 17th of this year sponsored by CNN/ORC.

    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.
