On Thursday, May 4th the GOP plans to make another vote on repealing Obamacare or simple as the Affordable Care Act. Since the Republican party gained control of the GOP, they have pushed to abolish the Obamacare. Obamacare was enacted under the jurisdiction by the former president, Barrack Obama on March 23, 2010 to allow families to receive better health insurance and its coverage.

With over twenty million people covered from Obamacare, the abolishment of the ACA will cause disruption and inconvenience for many. As a way to prevent the new bill from collapsing like the rest, a new amendment will be forged of adding over $8 billion to fund  “high risk pools” such as patients with preexisting conditions. Although, the GOP wishes to enact a new healthcare system to replace Obamacare with estimates of a few million losing their coverage. With many struggles from both Democrats who wish to allow Obamacare to continue and the Republican party itself has difficulty between Republican party members around the bill.
