http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pEkCbqN4uo

After watching the first section (Consequences) of “The Weight of the Nation” – Part 1 answer the following questions in an APA style, three page paper.

What parts of Cindy’s story stood out for you?
Which of the Bogalusa Heart Study findings surprised you and why?
Why do you think the obesity epidemic has increased over the last three decades? Before the film did you view obesity primarily as an individual problem? How does the high rate of childhood obesity affect that view?
How did you react when Jennifer listed off the fat content of popular foods?
If you could make one change in public policy to reduce obesity and its costs to society, what would it be?

 

Part 2

1. Using the Affordable Care Act as an example, track the policy making process discussed in class. What factors may have contributed to the bill passing where other attempts failed.   What were the problems that forced the health care issue onto the agenda and give some assessment of the historical process (Why did those measures fail and identify key interest groups responsible for assuring those failures)? 

 

2. Describe the issues that led to the Supreme Court ruling in July. What did the Supreme Court decide regarding the constitutionality of the law? (On what basis did the court rule on the insurance mandate?) How does the Court's decision affect those who do not have insurance? Given the Court's decision, what holds for the future of expanding Medicaid?

 

3. Using the article "Bitter Pill", what continuing challenges do we face in reforming health care in the U.S. How does our health care system compare with other countries in terms of cost and outcomes?  What types of modifications have been made to the bill during its initial stages of implementation? What key areas would you recommend modifications to improve health care in the U.S.?
