They reported improvements in affordability of care, regular care for their conditions, medication adherence, and self-reported health.

"If Congress's version of the American Health Care Act becomes a reality, the impact on New York State could be devastating", Brindisi said. But they have this big problem in that they've promised their base...repeal. Learn the facts about Trumpcare and selfishly see if it works for you. The Affordable Care Act is essential to me and people like me.

Toomey said they're working to find common ground. "And he said "I'm maybe willing to be part of a repeal and replace strategy".

Senate Republicans have been dubiously dissecting the House health care bill since it passed 217 to 213 on May 4. Fix or improve Obamacare.

In a statement to Missourinet, Blunt didn't waver from the Republican stance to do away with the current health care system.

"Obamacare is collapsing. It's dead".

Provisions in the Affordable Care Act, such as access to health insurance regardless of a pre-existing condition, expanded coverage of Medicaid, and funding for preventive health services for women, like those offered at Planned Parenthood, have contributed to more African Americans gaining health insurance coverage.
