    Many people in the US will soon have to pay a lot more for health insurance after President Donald Trump's administration decided to do away with former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act - also known as "Obamacare".

    Subsidies that were part of that programme have now been scrapped.

    As the Republican-led government has been whittling away at Obamacare, health insurance options are becoming fewer and pricier.
