The Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to by many as Obamacare, is a highly debated topic across the nation. Various groups support the measure and the increase in health care opportunities it provides, while countless others oppose it and continue to fight for its repeal.
While the battle over Obamacare continues to play out on the national stage, it was also the basis for a literal debate recently at Elk County Catholic High School.
One group that recently went head to head weighing the pros and cons of the measure was the AP Language and Composition class under the direction of Grace Messineo at Elk County Catholic High School.
