With Republicans in the White House and holding majorities in both houses of Congress it seemed that nothing could stand in the way of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as ObamaCare, however, after years of campaigning on this issue, no consensus bill, in fact, has been developed by either Congress or the new Administration. The first attempt to repeal and replace the (ACA) came on March 6, 2017 with the introduction of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). On March 24, 2017, the ACHA bill was withdrawn. It failed for many reasons, tops among them the Congressional Budget Office assessment that 24 million people would be rendered uninsured by 2026 relative to current law, concentrated ironically in low-income demographics who had voted for the president, pushback from Republican governors who had had expanded Medicaid, and coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
