Trump Aims to Topple Obamacare

The Trump administration has changed its tune on the Affordable Care Act, calling for the sweeping health care law to be entirely repealed.

The president’s earlier efforts against Obamacare focused on nixing protections for people with preexisting conditions.

In a 2-sentence letter, the Justice Department wrote in favor of a district court ruling in Texas that deemed the ACA unconstitutional because of a change in tax law that eliminated the penalty on the uninsured.

The ACA will likely land before the Supreme Court a third time—but for now, Obamacare remains intact.
