But even though his administration has not yet revealed a plan, his legal department is now threatened to remove the cover and benefits that many people have come to get for granted in the nine years since the Affordable Care Act landmark signed in law.
The administration said Monday that the entire law should be knocked down, a dramatic reversal of its previous position. In a filing with a federal court of appeal, the Justice Department said it was in agreement with a decision of a Texas federal judge that invalidated Obamacare. Previously, under the former Justice Minister Jeff Sessions, the Agency had argued that only two important safeguards for those who had existing relationships could not be justified.
If Trump administration prevails, nearly all Americans may be affected by the health sector, although most people are unaware of it. While most people associate Obamacare with the individual health insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion, it has far greater influence.
Obamacare has meant lower premiums, deductible and out-of-pocket costs for the approx. 60 million seniors and disabled Americans enrolled in Medicare. And it helped close the gap in Medicare's drug coverage.
