(1) What are the main provisions of the Affordable Care Act? What larger goals does the ACA seek to achieve? How does the law intend to achieve them?

(2) What did the U.S. Supreme Court rule about the ACA in NFIB v. Sebelius? What parts of the Act were upheld? What parts were struck down, or revised? How have states reacted?
