ABSTRACT
The author emphasizes the need for change in the health care reform Patient Protection and Affordability Act supported by U.S. President Barack Obama. He discusses the goals of the reform which include providing more private health insurance and enhancing the taxation system to finance the health care system. He suggests that the government should make private health insurance more accessible to the public and concludes that when more people are able to pay insurance premiums, the funds may then be used for expanded health care services.
