To prepare for this task you will need to read Proposals to Replace the Affordable Care Act and Trump Is Trying Hard to Thwart Obamacare. How’s That Going? (see links below) for additional background on the current status of the American healthcare system. You should also want to watch the videos provided below and learn more about the current candidates’ healthcare proposals. The entire two-part written response should be no more than two double spaced pages.

Be prepared to make your argument in the live session.
Using the theoretical ethical frameworks discussed in the lectures: (1) Identify two core questions that will frame your ethical decision-making within the argument you prepared, and (2) justify your course of action based on these questions
