Trump Versus Clinton: Obamacare

Hillary Clinton

Clinton has taken a strong stance against repealing the Affordable Care Act, and has pledged to expand taxpayer-funded health insurance, pushed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as the "public option." According to CNN, Clinton has supported a public option for health insurance for years.

Donald Trump

Trump says that he would "ask Congress to immediately deliver a full repeal of Obamacare" and would work with Congress on passing reforms based on free-market principles to "broaden healthcare access, make healthcare more affordable and improve the quality of the care available to all Americans." Trump has also promised to modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state lines, review basic options for Medicaid, and work with states to ensure that those who want healthcare coverage can have it.
