Conditions:

I will be arguing for the resolution, Con will be arguing that the Affordable Care Act is NOT beneficial legislation. I had some trouble wording the title of the debate, so any questions make them clear.

This is an open challenge, I expect Con to be able to source and put considerable time into their arguments as I have opted for the 10000 character limit.I will be using Standard British English, Con may use American/British.

As this is such a contentious issue I hope voters will put personal beliefs aside and make judgement based on the quality of the debate.

Finally, good luck to whoever accepts! Looking forward to the first round of points, please remember your round one should NOT be your argument but rather acceptance.

Rounds:

1. Acceptance only
2. Opening arguments
3. Rebuttals
4. Closing arguments/rebuttals

Definitions:

The Affordable Care Act:' The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act' (PPACA),[1] commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare": United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Overhauling the current US healthcare system.
