Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders both say they would negotiate a national healthcare plan, but Trump has suggested he would like to “get rid of the Affordable Care Act.”
A Republican health care proposal that is being crafted by the Trump administration and congressional Republicans could be introduced in the coming weeks.
Trump and Sanders have a history of opposing healthcare reform.
In June, Trump announced he was considering a national plan to replace the ACA.
Trump has previously advocated scrapping the Affordable Health Care Act and has proposed other options, including one that would not require insurers to cover essential healthcare services such as maternity care.
Trump and Sanders are vying for the Democratic nomination, but the Democratic race is a different story.
They are vying to replace President Barack Obama and Republicans in the House of Representatives, and the race has become a key battleground for the 2016 race.
Trump, Sanders and the rest of the Democratic Party are all vying to win the support of working-class white voters who traditionally vote for the Democrats, but are increasingly alienated by the Republican Party.
Democrats have long struggled to attract minority voters.
The party has lost ground to the GOP in states like North Carolina, where African-Americans, Hispanics, and young people have moved to the Democratic party.
Trump’s appeal to working- and middle-class whites may have helped the GOP gain seats in Congress in states that have been red in recent years.
Democrats have also seen a decline in white voters, and their party has struggled to win in the state of Florida, which Trump carried in November.
However, Trump and his allies in the GOP are not concerned with white voters.
Trump wants to make the GOP a “very big party,” said Sarah Jaffe, a professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania who studies American politics.
“We have to start working to attract more of these white voters,” she told NBC News.
The health care debate could also play into the race for the White House.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has said he wants to be the Republican nominee.
Giuliani has also made an effort to portray himself as the party’s moderate.
It’s not clear if Giuliani will be willing to step aside if he does not win the nomination.
While the party is struggling to gain the support and votes of working class whites, the Republican party is increasingly attracting white voters with a focus on social issues.
In the last presidential election cycle, the party lost a total of 26 seats to Democrats.
In Ohio, where Trump won the state, Republican John Kasich has been trying to woo white working class voters with his populist, anti-immigration message.
According to exit polls, Trump won 57 percent of white working- class voters in Ohio in the 2016 election, and he won them by a margin of 2.3 to 1.
The Republican Party has struggled with winning over white working men since Ronald Reagan, who was president from 1981 to 1989.
As Trump and the Republicans are trying to win over the white working classes, the Democratic National Committee has begun to take a hard line against the Republican healthcare plan.
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has criticized Trump for saying the health care plan would cost the government more than the federal budget deficit.
Schultz and other DNC leaders have said the plan would increase the federal deficit by $1.6 trillion over a decade.
This year, the DNC and other Democratic leaders have been pushing to pass a healthcare bill that will guarantee healthcare for all Americans.
On Monday, the House voted 217-205 to pass the House-passed bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
In a press conference after the vote, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the vote shows the “GOP can’t be trusted” to “make this choice.”
“They’ve shown their true colors: they can’t deliver healthcare to all Americans, or at least they won’t make this choice until they’ve failed to deliver it,” she said.
A spokesman for the Republican National Committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
More to come.
