Biden Slams Trump’s Latest Attempt to Dismantle Affordable Care Act

President Biden wasted no time in responding to Donald Trump’s recent social media post, where the former president expressed his interest in finding alternatives to the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Biden, in a statement at the White House, criticized Trump’s call for cuts that could potentially strip health insurance from millions of Americans. He affirmed his commitment to protecting the law and ensuring that such actions do not come to pass.

Sources within the Biden campaign headquarters revealed that plans were hastily made to highlight the stark differences between Trump and Biden on healthcare. New TV ads will be launched this week in swing states to showcase President Biden’s efforts to lower prescription drug prices while shedding light on Trump’s call for repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Additionally, a press call with Representative Nancy Pelosi and North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper will be held to condemn Trump’s promise to repeal the law. The campaign team is also digging into the archives to find evidence of Trump’s past attempts to terminate the Affordable Care Act.

To bolster their stance, the Biden campaign released polling data that underscores the popularity of the Affordable Care Act. With over 40 million people, or over 1 in 10 Americans, having health coverage through the law, the campaign emphasizes the potential impact of Trump’s actions should he return to power.

They remind the public that Trump had come close to repealing the law during his presidency and believe he will make another attempt if given the opportunity.

The Affordable Care Act, passed in 2010 under the Obama administration, expanded health insurance coverage by widening Medicaid eligibility requirements and offering tax credits for purchasing private insurance plans through newly established marketplaces.

While Republicans have campaigned on repealing the legislation for years, their efforts were hampered once they gained control of Congress and the White House. In 2017, when the GOP-controlled House passed a plan and the Senate considered another, Senator John McCain dramatically voted against the repeal, which ultimately derailed the Republican plan.
