One-Third Don't Know Obamacare and Affordable Care Act Are the Same

Obamacare enrollment slowed before deadline

The threat of a repeal is also causing, she said, uncertainty for health care providers, who may decide to hold off on investments in innovations now funded by the Affordable Care Act.

Greg Walden (R., Ore.), who chairs the committee. He said that the White House assured him they were still supportive of repealing and replacing the ACA as soon as possible. "Repair any issues - don't repeal". At a party retreat last month, Republicans still seemed uncertain exactly how and when they would proceed.

Conservatives, however, are pushing back.

Baldwin said that Republicans are "organizing to take people's health care away". "One of the reasons of the rise of Donald Trump is because so many conservatives, so many Republicans, said they had been betrayed by their leaders".

Thank you for addressing this issue of great importance to 30 million Americans who now buy their insurance on the individual market.

The Affordable Care Act plays an important role in providing access to healthcare, especially in Kern County, where as many as 70,000 people are covered by the act.

But the conservatives rejected that characterization. Another provision of the ACA that makes my insurance affordable, as an older working American, is the regulation that sets maximum premiums at three times the lowest premium.
