Poll: 81% of Americans Disapprove of GOP Handling of HealthcareOctober 11, 2017 |

There has arguably not been a more hot-button issue on Capitol Hill this year than healthcare reform, and it’s not hard to understand why. Heading into the Oval Office, Donald Trump had pledged throughout his campaign to repeal and replace Barack Obama’s signature health law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which is best known as Obamacare.
Trump also strongly believed he had the votes to make such a repeal happen, with members of the GOP in the House voting to repeal Obamacare on more than 60 occasions during the Obama presidency. But when push came to shove, no deal was made, and Obamacare looks to remain the health law of the land for at least a few months longer.
