With the recent victory of the Republican Party taking control of Congress and the Presidency, now they have the opportunity to either repair, replace or readjust the Affordable Care Act. This is an important part of a Trump administration. It has been a topic that Republican had tried many times to change. Now is the time to do so. The question remains, what changes will take place in order to replace the Affordable Care Act?
According to the article, with the new Congress, they can make a significant change to the health law though budget moves without any need of a filibuster. The good news is that both chambers agreed to a broader package and are willing to work together to accomplish it. If Republicans decide to repeal, they face a tough decision regarding the subsidies given for those that cannot qualify for healthcare.
Congress is waiting until Trump sets an up a team that is in charge of the healthcare. This will happened soon sometime next year, but until then, many questions are still unanswered.
