As the self-proclaimed greatest country in the world, the U.S. is still falling short on a handful of things that any great country should provide. One of those things is universal health care. Fortunately, in 2010, with the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, our government made an effort to make health care accessible to all.
