The numbers of new Americans enrolled into the Affordable Health Care Plan shows that in red states, where President Trump won the 2016 election, there is a need for the program. In addition the new applicants comes the growing popularity of the ACA. Public support for the controversial law has inched up to around its highest point in a half-dozen years. And also note that this past enrollment season was successful even though the Trump administration made things difficult with a shortened enrollment season.
“Americans in states that Donald Trump carried in his march to the White House account for more than 4 in 5 of those signed up for coverage under the health care law the president still wants to take down,” ABC News reports.
“An Associated Press analysis of new figures from the government found that 7.3 million of the 8.8 million consumers signed up so far for next year come from states Trump won in the 2016 presidential election. The four states with the highest number of sign-ups — Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Georgia, accounting for nearly 3.9 million customers — were all Trump states.”
