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 Americans’ 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 administration’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 “Medicare for all” system guaranteeing health insurance for everyone.
