The Trump administration's announcement came in the form of a March 25 court filing by the Department of Justice with a federal appeals court saying a ruling against the ACA made by a federal judge in Texas last December "should be affirmed".

"Protecting and strengthening health care is why Democrats are here".

While Donald Trump's administration has tied itself to a court case created to strike down the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, House Democrats put forward new legislation aimed at strengthening the ACA.

Health care was the No. 1 motivating issue in the 2018 midterm elections that delivered Democrats a House majority.

While Republicans and Trump campaigned for the better part of a decade against the health care law - the signature domestic achievement of the Obama presidency - the party never coalesced around an alternative policy that would provide insurance coverage to more Americans and protect coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.

"The Democrats aren't, they've let you down, they came up with Obamacare, its bad", Trump said.

Previously, the Trump administration had said portions of Obamacare should be struck down and others should survive, including a state-led expansion of Medicaid health insurance for the poor.

President Trump himself cited the sabotage of the ACA as the clear goal of the AHP Rule, proclaiming that it was a "truly historic step in our efforts to rescue Americans from Obamacare and the Obamacare nightmare" and would "escape some of Obamacare's most burdensome mandates". "The Republican Party will soon be known as the party of health care", Trump told reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. There is little popular support for ripping out all private health-care coverage (obtained through employers or otherwise) and even less for taking health-care coverage away from 20 million people.

Asked how Republicans can repeal Obamacare with Nancy Pelosi wielding the speaker's gavel, Sen. "On Day One, the first day, as we were sworn in the 116 Congress, the House voted to intervene against Republicans' monstrous health care lawsuit", Pelosi said.

"Obamacare is a disaster, it's too expensive by far, people can't afford it and the deductible is awful", Trump said. In 2012, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, which requires uncovered people to sign up for a plan or face a tax penalty. If the decision is upheld, it could significantly disrupt the USA health care system. "The real fear I have is the Democrats' plan of Medicare for All".

Conway said Obamacare had not been a "magic elixir" since more than 27.4 million non-elderly individuals in the United States were without health insurance in 2017, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

While the party hasn't coalesced behind ahealth care plan, there are policies that Republicans have long supported.
