Trump to Congress: Repeal and replace Obamacare! Is it easier said than done?2017-03-01
On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump called on lawmakers to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). He cautioned that the ACA, which covers 20 million people, is "collapsing."
But how will lawmakers dismantle a nationwide healthcare system? President Trump is supposedly in support of a GOP bill repealing Obamacare but still provides protections for those with pre-existing conditions, allows individual states more flexibility on Medicaid and encourages tax credits and savings accounts. Is all of this easier said than done? How long will it take? How much will it cost? What will replace it?
