If Trump is elected to a second term, he promises to step up efforts to replace "Obamacare."

Former President Donald Trump threatened to reopen the contentious debate over the Affordable Care Act this past weekend, saying that he is "seriously looking at alternatives" if he is elected to a second term. Trump was unsuccessful in repealing the law during his presidency.  

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign denounced Trump's comments, calling them yet another "extremist" proposal from the front-runner of the Republican Party. They also moved swiftly to plan a counteroffensive, releasing new commercials in strategic states that pitted Biden's efforts to lower drug prices against Trump's comments. 

Director of Biden's campaign communications Michael Tyler said, "We're going to use every tool in our arsenal to make sure the American people know that lives are literally on the line come November." 

"Donald Trump is campaigning on a threat to rip away health care from millions of Americans." The back and forth reveals a potentially significant issue in the event that Trump and Biden rematch in the general election—assuming both win as widely expected. 

For some time now, Biden's team has believed that Trump will be the Republican nominee due to his sizable lead in the polls. They have thus stepped up their attempts in the last few weeks to depict Trump as a danger to democracy and to highlight the radical nature of his policies. 

Specifically, Biden has begun to depict a catastrophic future in the event that Trump wins. This strategy might sway undecided Democratic voters who are more inclined to support Biden's candidacy than to support Trump because of unresolved concerns about high inflation, the direction of the country, and his advanced age. 

About 60% of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the health reform bill, also known as Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010. This information comes from a KFF poll conducted in May 2023.  

37% of Americans think Democrats will handle health care issues better than Republicans, according to a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll, while roughly 1 in 5 people, or 18%, think Republicans will handle these issues better.  

About one-third (34%) don't believe in either side. However, according to an AP-NORC survey conducted in June 2023, 44% of American adults supported Biden's health care strategy, while 53% disapproved. According to Biden's overall job approval rating, this group consisted of 69% Democrats and 17% of Republicans.
