"Thanks to the leadership of President Trump, welcome to the end of Obama Care," said Vice President Mike Pence. President Donald Trump had invited leading conservatives to the White House. CNN covered the event where so much laughter, clapping and shoulder tapping between Republicans and the President took place. The mood in the Rose Garden of the White House reminded one of a garden party.

Shortly before, the Republicans had just quashed one of the most important social laws of the past decades. "This is the abolition and the replacement of Obama Care, do not deceive them," cried a visibly well-tempered President.

Election campaign

The jubilation was almost concrete in the Chamber of Deputies too, when the result became known. With a four-part majority, the Republicans had made Obama Care a history. For Donald Trump, it is the first major victory in the House of Representatives. To abolish Obama Care was one of his central campaign promises.

Since the day when President Barack Obama had put his signature on health insurance for all, seven years back, the Republicans fought against the duty to a complete health insurance, and to get grants from the state.

Less state aid, no insurance

The most important points, which are different in the new law, There is no longer a duty to complete health insurance. Furthermore, insurance companies do not have to accept people with pre-existing conditions, insurance companies can demand higher contributions from the elderly, and state aid for people who cannot afford health insurance is reduced dramatically.

The last point could cause the greatest changes.

The budget office fears that under the new law, millions of US citizens will lose their protection again. In return, many Americans hope that their contributions will drop again, which in some cases have risen significantly in recent years.

The supply is getting worse

The Democrats consider the new law to be a disaster.

"The costs will rise, the self-participation will be worse and the supply will be worse," fears Bill Cunningham. Like many other deputies, he had not correctly read the law because it had been published so quickly.

President Donald Trump promises the exact opposite: "The contributions will fall." Until President Trump's Obama Care can finally be buried, there is still a long way to go.

The Senate must still give its blessing. The process is complicated. Part of the new law needs only the simple majority who has the Republicans. For other parts, they need the voices of the Democrats. The fight for the health of the Americans is not over yet.
