On Monday, March 6, House Republicans released the American Health Care Act, their long-awaited plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more commonly known as “Obamacare.” While the goal for Republicans over the last eight years has been to repeal the ACA in its entirety, for the most part the new bill leaves much of the existing legislation in place.
The reason why stems from the rules for the process in which Republicans seek to pass the American Health Care Act: budget reconciliation. The advantage of passing the ACA repeal and replace legislation as a reconciliation bill is that only a simple Senate majority is required for passage (some may recall that parts of the ACA were enacted using the same mechanism).
On Monday, March 6, the House Republicans released the American Health Care Act – the long-awaited plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more commonly known as “Obamacare.” When the ACA was enacted in March 2010, major themes included expansion of coverage, improving the efficiency and quality of healthcare, and lowering the overall cost of insurance.

The UN hopes that ASEAN will be a gateway for the sharing of best practices and knowledge to help end malnutrition in the region and in all SUN countries. The SUN Movement’s operating principle is that everyone has the right to food and good nutrition.
