The Republican-sponsored health care bill, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was withdrawn on Friday before it was to be voted on in the House. Americans had mixed emotions throughout the country on the measure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). ACA, nicknamed Obamacare, has provided coverage that to some that was previously unavailable, while others have seen higher premiums or no increase in coverage.
Kaiser polling has the ACA at a 49% approval rating, and a 44% disapproval. A Pew Research poll from February showed 54% of Americans viewing the ACA favorably. As the AHCA stood, it was receiving a 17% approval rating and 53% disapproval rating according to a Quinnipiac University national poll.
