Repeal and Replace Obamacare

A disaster that is burdening our country.

America First Policies believes Obamacare is a disaster, burdening our country with rising premiums, unaffordable deductibles, fewer insurance choices, and higher taxes. Congress needs to repeal and replace this law, including rescinding the individual mandate and eliminating taxes that drive up costs, in order to restore our broken healthcare system and provide relief to millions of Americans across the country.
