Affordable Care Act (ACA)

The Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has greatly concerned citizens and political leaders in California, which has generally benefited from what some regard as one of President Barack Obama's greatest achievements. Although some elected officials and their supporters had hoped to circumvent the federal program by creating the state's own single-payer system, this plan could itself be thwarted if "Obamacare" is repealed.
