Supporting Evidence For Thesis

Let’s say you decide to write one of your assigned essays and you choose one of the two choices for a thesis before you actually start writing anything you have to do research you have to find evidence for points you will make to support your thesis also you need to keep track of the sources you use during your research that provided the evidence you will use so you can cite and reference them later let me show you an example okay before going on with this  I want to make sure you know something because not everyone knows this Obama care and the Affordable Care Act are the same thing Obama care is just a nickname for the Affordable Care Act which is abbreviated ACA I’m telling you this because the sample essay I’m showing you in this  as an example is about Obama care and I use the terms Obama care and Affordable Care Act interchangeably and I just wanted to make sure you knew that they were the same thing or you’d be confused.

So if you knew that already fine but if you didn’t don’t feel stupid comedian Jimmy Kimmel interviewed people on the street in California about which they preferred Obamacare versus the Affordable Care Act and why what’s hilarious is they do not realize they are the same thing definitely watch this if you need a way okay now that we got that out of the way let’s go back to our example theses here I’m going to use the example thesis from sample essay 1 which is this paper will argue that Obamacare caused many changes but overall it was a failure because this is a five paragraph essay and the body will contain three paragraphs then we will prepare to support three points one per paragraph so let’s ask ourselves what evidence do we have that it was a failure Wow medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States that’s pretty bad actually I read this whole paper it was not that long but it makes a lot of points what this paper also says is that there are no laws that compel hospitals to track medical errors which includes the Obamacare law so this is an example of an external source that will be used to support the point made in the first paragraph of the body.

Notice how the paper is by Martin Macari and Michael Daniel here’s another external source PolitiFact which is a high quality news source PolitiFact is saying that obamacare will require healthcare providers to report preventable medical errors see this one is by Becky Bowers so it says that the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare encourages healthcare providers to report hospital-acquired conditions but let’s read down here we found the law stops short of requiring all hospitals and providers to do the kind of reporting Obama promised rather the law focuses primarily on Medicare providers though that includes nearly all physicians and reporting that’s voluntary and incentive based.
