The Health Care Reform Bill was surrounded by an extensive array of factors and had many relevant elements which either supported or opposed the bill. This paper focuses on examining what the decision making procedure and particular issues linked with this specific process might have been in the developmental procedure and passing of the Health Care Reform Bill.
