Over 17% of the United States' gross domestic product (GDP) is currently spent on the health care delivery system and these costs are expanding at an unsustainable rate. Other industrialized nations spend 50% or less of what we spend with outcomes better than ours. Since Theodore Roosevelt, every U.S. president has attempted to reform health care but has been only modestly effective until now with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Political, economic and philosophical stakeholders have attempted to sway public opinion against the ACA through a media and lobbying campaign that is unprecedented in its cost. Much of this campaign consisted of partial truths, fear tactics and, at times, pure deception. This study sought to determine whether or not a factual lecture on key provisions of the ACA would change nurses' opinions on the Bill. The method used was a quasi-quantitative experimental one group pretest–posttest design that tested the relationship between level of knowledge of the ACA and support for it among nurses.
