Solution To A Current Challenge

1. If I was the president of the United States one way I would reform the affordable healthcare act would be by making healthcare more affordable and making it easier for people to get access to healthcare. Another thing that I would do to help reform the healthcare act would be to help people that were uninsured get health insurance and help those who didn't have good coverage on their insurance get better health insurance for themselves and their families.

2. Gun Control

Who- Maryland residents

What- Gun rights supporters claim the ban violates the second amendment because it applies to firearms that many Maryland residents keep in their homes.

Why- rarely used for self defense

Where- Maryland

When- earlier this year

To resolve this issue they could make strict laws for people to own a gun.

3. I think that the best leadership qualities that a president can have to solve challenges are honesty, communication, and commitment. These are all important because it will influence others to do the same. Also having good leadership qualities will help you to find solutions to issues and challenges.
