House Democrats Seek to Bolster Affordable Care Act

Newly-proposed legislation would block the expansion of association health plans.

Three House Democratic leaders introduced a healthcare bill aimed at reversing some of the actions taken by the Trump administration regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Because Republicans currently control Congress, however, the legislation may largely be moot for now.

The legislation was introduced by Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Frank Pallone Jr, D-New Jersey, Ways and Means Ranking Member Richard Neal, D-Massachusetts, and Education and the Workforce Ranking Member Bobby Scott, D-Virginia.
