Trump administration says entire Affordable Care Act should be repealed

'The Democrats aren't. They've let you down.

Challenges lie ahead for both the Republicans and the Democrats who hope to deny Trump re-election next year.

While most people agree that so-called Obamacare has some problems, overturning the law would have far-reaching consequences-including potentially interrupting coverage for those who buy their health insurance on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) exchanges, as well as making healthcare financially impossible for millions of people.

Preferring the "let's all move on" option, two CNN reporters penned an unintentionally amusing article suggesting that the finding of no collusion was an opportunity to quickly "move past a dark period", but anxious that the president "isn't prepared to let go". They came up with Obamacare.

Davis said outlets like CNN and MSNBC moved to a daily strategy after Trump's election to "ratchet up the hysteria to get people completely freaked out".

Without knowing much about what's in the report, weighing the plausibility of these theories requires a good deal of speculation.

"It would be catastrophic", said Ted Doolittle, Connecticut's health care advocate.

"I mean it 100 percent, I understand health care now, especially very well".

At the same time, Trump's critics need to resist the intimidation that will be brought to bear in the period between now and when Barr releases whatever he is willing to put out from Mueller's report.

Almost half of all Americans still believe President Donald Trump worked with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after Special Counsel Robert Mueller cleared Trump of that allegation.

One attorney told Law&Crime that it was "odd" that Mueller would submit his report before the Stone prosecution was over and "perplexing" that he would do so while the grand jury subpoena was still being resisted.

Health care was the No. 1 motivating issue in the 2018 midterm elections that delivered Democrats a House majority.

And so it emerged that the Trump Justice Department filed a court document in support of a right-wing judge's wild ruling that the entire Affordable Care Act should be killed.

Emboldened by the end of the investigation, Trump on Tuesday strode into a high-spirited gathering of Senate Republicans, flanked by party leaders, saying the attorney general's summary of Mueller's report "could not have been better".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said the Justice Department decision "will prove far more detrimental" to the Republicans than any political "gains" they might enjoy from the end of Mueller's investigation. "It's hard to figure out", said Democratic Sen.

Although Mueller could not establish Trump or his campaign "conspired or coordinated with" the Russian government, according to Barr's letter, the poll finds the American people continue to view the issue through partisan lenses.

It divulged its position in a legal filing Monday with the US Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans, where an appeal is pending in a case challenging the measure's constitutionality.
