The new Congress under President-elect Donald Trump took the first steps on January 13th to begin the process of repealing Obamacare.

House republicans have stuck to their word and began the process of repeal by approving a budget resolution. However, not all republicans were on board, as a total of nine republicans voted against the measure. As time progresses, republican congresspersons grow more anxious to replace Obamacare with their own system, but they have yet to present it.

However, the President-elect has promised that Americans who will be left without healthcare due to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act will be covered under his new policy. In an interview with the Washington Post, the President-elect said “we’re going to have insurance for everybody,” said the President-elect.

This will be the first major legislation of the majority republican Congress, and with a republican President in office, less gridlock is expected.

However, only time will tell if the republican party can stay in agreeance with policy choices. But in the meantime, there is one main focus, and that is repealing and replacing Obamacare.
