The Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," is "not just a website," President Barack Obama recently said. True. The law is expansive, with lots of different parts. If the problems with Healthcare.gov are not fixed soon, though, the rest of the law is threatened.
To understand why, it is first necessary to understand what the ACA is mainly trying to accomplish.
While the full title of the law is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the primary purpose of the law is not to protect patients or make health care more affordable (though some parts of the law attempt to do that.) At its core, the ACA is mainly about providing more Americans with health insurance coverage.
