An informal name for the Affordable Care Act introduced in 2010 by President Obama to improve access to health insurance for US citizens.
Obamacare, a controversial political issue and a major talking point during the recent battle for the presidency of the United States, was at the forefront of the Trump campaign. It was a major element of the policies set out in his election trail speeches. The then candidate promised that if elected he would definitely repeal the provisions of Obamacare.
Having been elected, the US President has found that repealing the Affordable Care Act is not as straightforward as he believed it would be. Many members of his own Republican Party are against complete repeal and it seems an increasing majority of Americans want the provisions of the Act retained or even strengthened.
