President Trump is again focusing on one of his promises during the 2016 campaign: to abolish the Affordable Care Act.
The legislation, commonly known as Obamacare, greatly expanded low-income and working-class AmericansÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ eligibility for Medicaid. More than 20 million additional people are now getting health insurance from private companies through the federal program.
Democrats vow to resist the administrationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s efforts to end the ACA. Most of them favor making it even easier to qualify for the coverage, and some want to enact a Ã¢â‚¬Å“Medicare for allÃ¢â‚¬Â system guaranteeing health insurance for everyone.
