Guess you just missed all those big town hall protests against doing away with the ACA??

I say bring it on, will just be another losing issue for this administration.

Who has nothing, nada, zero, plans on what to replace it with
As many a one hundred each? Trump draws 30,000 against that stupid law. ObamaCare was a failure.

Well that much is true.

Trump did try to address it but congress stopped him.

His plan kind of sucked also though.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017? Eliminating that dictatorial part of Obamacare was in that legislation,which starts in 2019.
Trump claim: "Obamacare has been repealed in this bill."

The facts: It hasn't. The tax plan does end fines for people who don't carry health insurance, which is a big change, yes, but far from totally dismantling the law.

Mr. Trump said at a meeting with his Cabinet, "When the individual mandate is being repealed, that means Obamacare is being repealed," adding, "We will come up with something much better."

Other marquee components of Obama's law remain, such as the Medicaid expansion serving low-income adults, protections that shield people with pre-existing medical conditions from being denied coverage or charged higher premiums, income-based subsidies for consumers buying individual health insurance policies, the requirement that insurers cover "essential" health benefits, and the mandate that larger employers provide coverage to their workers or face fines.

Also, the tax bill doesn't repeal fines for uninsured individuals until the start of 2019, meaning the "individual mandate" is still in force for next year unless the administration acts to waive the penalties.

Is Obamacare repealed, as Trump said?
