US national politics

People vote for politicians in the hope that they will enact the policies that they promised during the election
campaign. As you have learned this semester, US politics and policy making is complicated, cumbersome, and
slow. Even when a party wins control of both houses of Congress, the executive branch, and has majority
support on the Supreme Court (as was the case in 2016), it is not always possible to deliver the policies that
were promised. In this exam essay, you should demonstrate your broad understanding of US national politics
through a compelling explanation of why a central promise of the 2016 general election, “repeal-and-replace of
the ACA (also known as Obamacare),” failed to become a reality during the last four years.
