The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
The Senate and then the House passed a budget resolution that sets in motion their plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2017.
Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia have expanded Medicaid under the ACA. Repeal of this provision alone would impact an estimated 11 million low-income Americans.
Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Reps. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) and Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) reintroduced the Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy (BRIDGE) Act, which would provide temporary relief from deportation and work authorization to undocumented youth who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
