Reform, about which he writes, Barack Obama, is one of the most ambitious projects during his stay in power, according to some estimates, and over the past half century in the United States as a whole. She wears ploneformgen the name Obamacare, by analogy with created in the 1960-ies the state of Medicare. The reform was initiated by Obama, was approved by Congress in 2010 and implemented in 2013, its main goal is the optimization of costs of services in the health sector, improving the quality and accessibility of health insurance. Until that reform is not valid in 19 American States, but in the future is expected to spread to them. Many believe Obamacare is the most significant achievement of Barack Obama as President.

The article is entitled “health care Reform in the United States: current progress and future steps”. In General, in the published work, the reform is evaluated positively, in particular, mentions that she played a key role in reducing the number of Americans without health insurance, with 16 percent in 2010 to 9 percent in 2015. The article also notes that the reform, contrary to the predictions of skeptics, has not led to a crisis in the labour market. Further, according to the forecast of the President, Obamacare will dramatically reduce health care costs without loss of quality.

The Journal of the American Medical Association, or JAMA, is a pretty prestigious publication, and articles almost always pass a rigorous review procedure. However, the article Obama published in a special heading of special communication (“special letter”), which means that it was used much less stringent requirements from a purely scientific point of view. Although the number of authors listed only the us President himself, under additional information, he thanks a number of scientists who participated in the information gathering, writing and editing articles.
