President Trump recently renewed the "repeal and replace" battle cry promising to make the 2020 election a referendum on Obamacare.

The U.S. Department of Justice has agreed with a Texas district court judge in releasing an opinion that the Affordable Care Act should be struck down. This is a reversal of the DOJ's earlier opinion in the district court in which the DOJ previously defended all of the ACA other than the individual mandate, including pre-existing condition provisions.

The majority of people who fall into the ACA’s “coverage gap”—or, are not eligible for Medicaid or tax credits on the exchanges—live in one of four nonexpansion states, according to a new study.
