Affordable Care Act

Repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without a substantively adequate and viable replacement would trigger a financial, medical, and public health crisis for consumers. Health insurance would become even further out-of-reach for consumers, instability would propel the individual market towards collapse, and the dramatic increase in the number of people who lack any insurance would transfer higher costs to everyone.
