Review your lectures. Then:
- Identify, how many Americans remain uninsured despite the PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), using the most current scholarly resource available.
- Identify how many Americans are currently signed up for and have paid premium for the PPACA.
- Discuss the current cost to Americans in subsidies, which are financially supporting the PPACA. What is the current fine charged by the IRS to those without insurance and how much will it increase in 2016? Will this fine increase have a negative or positive impact? Explain why.
Review the following articles from South University Library:

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Your initial posting should be addressed at 300-500 words. Submit your document to this Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Be sure to cite your sources using APA format.
Please let me know if the link works. It is supposed to just let you into the library once you click on the South University Online Library should take you directly to the library. I would suggest clicking on that link and then typing in the title of the article because I can't get the link to work for the article as well.
