Obamacare: Affordable Care Act under threat in US

There are 8.5 million Americans that receive low-cost health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

A legal case will kick off later on Tuesday in the United States, centred on healthcare.

A court will hear arguments in a challenge to the Affordable Care Act – commonly known as Obamacare – which started in 2010, providing low-cost health insurance to millions of citizens.

The Trump administration is trying to chip away at it, especially for those recipients who have so-called pre-existing conditions.
