The Affordable Care Act, Politics, And Patient Protection
Consider the fact that a legislator’s primary goal is to be re-elected. Both votes and dollars can be used to calculate the cost. As a result, it is critical to evaluate the legislator’s perspective on whether or not to support a certain project in the political environment.
Explain how you believe the cost-benefit analysis in terms of legislators’ reelection influenced efforts to repeal/replace the Affordable Care Act. Then, describe how vote analytics may influence congressional leaders’ recommendations or positioning of national policies (e.g., Congress’ actions affecting Medicare or Medicaid). Remember that a legislator’s first goal is to be re-elected.
