If you decide to use the conflict theory: you must fully define this theory—make sure that you understand it as well.  Then, use it to analyze, for example, the Affordable Health Care.  What is the Affordable Health Care?  Why do some people support it and others do not?  In other words, discuss the views of those who support it and those that do not support it.  In general, most Democrats and few Republicans support it, while few Democrats and most Republicans oppose it.  In this case, there have been a struggle between the supporters and non-supporters of this healthcare reform .  Amongst other questions, you should explain: What actions has each side taken?  What have been some of the outcomes so far?  Has it been repealed? What types of insurance do the lawmakers have—is their insurance similar to what most Americans have?  You do not have to take a position, but you may if you want to.
