Protections for persons with pre-existing medical problems a choice of no-cost preventative care, the extension of the Medicare program which protects low-income individuals and accessibility to healthcare care marketplaces with subsidized plans are among the primary components of the legislation.

Having 3 of former President Donald Trump’s appointments on the Supreme Court, supporters of “Obamacare” believed that a vote of the judges might eventually overturn the program they had been battling for over a year.

Going without health insurance even before the law was similar to a right of passage for folks in their twenties just starting in the world.
