Obama Criticizes Republicans’ Efforts to Repeal Care Act

Washington, – American President Barack Obama, criticized the Republican-controlled Congress efforts to repel and replace the care act law (Obamacare), which was issued in May 2010.

“One new study shows that if Congress repeals Obamacare as they’ve proposed, nearly 30 million Americans would lose their coverage. Four in five of them would come from working families. More than 9 million Americans who would receive tax credits to keep insurance affordable would no longer receive that help. That is unacceptable,” Obama said.

President-elect Donald Trump has long targeted the healthcare law, pledging to repeal and replace it, if given the opportunity. Since winning the White House in November, Trump has expressed his intention to retain a portion of the health insurance program known as Obamacare, explaining that his meeting with President Obama has changed his views on the matter.
