As Trump undercuts Affordable Care Act, Democrats go on offense in Pa., N.J. 21.10.2017 Philly.com News
With Republicans now holding the levers of power in Washington and President Trump taking action to undercut the Affordable Care Act, once defensive Democrats are pounding GOP incumbents. A potent example came earlier this week, when Pennsylvania and New Jersey regulators approved steep insurance rate increases in response to Trump's decision to end roughly $7 billion in federal payments.

What If Trump Wins on Obamacare and Taxes? 17.10.2017 American Prospect
AP Photo/Evan Vucci President Donald Trump makes a statement in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.  Until lately, Democrats have been comforting themselves over Trump’s nearly unbroken string of legislative losses. Despite a Republican majority in both houses of Congress, Trump and different factions of the GOP kept tripping over each other, denying him key legislative victories. His penchant for insulting leading Republican senators only adds to the dysfunction. Now, however, Trump may actually win a few. Consider the Affordable Care Act. Trump has found a way to cripple it via executive power, first by withholding insurance subsidies that are key to making the program affordable.
