After failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act during his presidency, former President Donald Trump threatened to reopen the controversial debate over the law this past weekend, claiming that if he is elected to second term, he is “seriously looking at alternatives.” The campaign of Democratic President Joe Biden criticized Trump’s remarks, characterizing them as just another “extremist” suggestion from the front-runner of the Republican Party. They also moved quickly to organize counterattack, launching fresh advertisements in key states that contrasted Trump’s remarks with Biden’s attempts to bring drug prices down.

“We’re going to use every tool in our arsenal to make sure the American people know that lives are literally on the line come November,” stated Michael Tyler, the director of Biden’s campaign communications. “Donald Trump is campaigning on threat to rip away health care from millions of Americans.” The back and forth highlights potential crucial issue in rematch between Trump and Biden in the general election—assuming both emerge victorious, as is generally predicted. Given Trump’s overwhelming lead in the polls, Biden’s team has long assumed that he would be the Republican nominee. As result, they have increased their efforts in recent weeks to portray Trump as threat to democracy and to portray his policies as extreme. In particular, Biden has started to paint picture of disastrous future in the event that Trump prevails. This tactic could inspire ambivalent Democratic voters who may be more motivated to defeat Trump than to give Biden second term due to lingering worries about high inflation, the course of the nation, and his advanced age.Prosecutors allege Trump posted (1)

Republicans have largely given up on efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act in recent years, but Democrats have generally done better when it comes to health care issues. And the Biden campaign pounced on the chance without delay. Beyond the new ads, the campaign will host a press call Tuesday with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper to highlight the potential impact of repealing the law, while state Democratic parties in swing states will host their own events. “Donald Trump’s America is one where millions of people lose their health insurance and seniors and families across the country face exorbitant costs just to stay healthy. Those are the stakes next November,” Biden-Harris 2024 spokesperson Ammar Moussa said in a statement. Ammar Moussa, spokesman for Biden-Harris 2024, stated in statement, “Those are the stakes next November.” Trump has not spent much time talking about health care in favor of laying out an aggressive platform for possible second term that has prioritized efforts to target political rivals and to crack down on immigration. However, Trump commented on the matter early on Saturday morning on his Truth Social website. “Obamacare is not good healthcare, and its costs are out of control. I’m considering my options carefully,” he wrote. few Republican senators ran six-year campaign opposing it before raising their hands to support keeping it in place. The Republican Party was at low point at the time, but we must never give up!

About 6 in 10 Americans say they have a favourable opinion of the health reform bill signed into law in 2010, known commonly as the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, according to a KFF poll conducted in May 2023.
A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll found 37% of Americans trust Democrats to do a better job than Republicans on handling health care, versus about 1 in 5 — 18% — who trust Republicans over Democrats on this issue. About one-third (34%) trust neither party. 
Still, a June 2023 AP-NORC poll showed a minority of U.S. adults — 44% — approving of how Biden was handling health care, with 53% disapproving. That included 69% of Democrats and 17% of Republicans — measurements in line with Biden’s overall job approval.

He was alluding to the July 2017 incident in which the late Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., prevented Trump from carrying out his protracted attempt to repeal the health care law, which has grown in popularity. According to KFF poll taken in May 2023, roughly 60% of Americans say they have positive opinion of the health reform bill that was signed into law in 2010 and is also known as Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. According to recent ABC News/Ipsos poll, 37% of Americans believe Democrats will handle health care issues better than Republicans, while roughly in people, or 18%, believe Republicans will handle these issues better. third or so (34%) have no faith in either side.
