In 2010, then-President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protect and Affordable Care Act, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare. ASA was actively involved in those discussions to attempt to ensure fair outcomes for the specialty. In the Republican-controlled 115th Congress, with President Donald Trump, Republicans vowed to “repeal and replace” this controversial law. ASA will continue to monitor developments in the 116th Congress and advocate for the concerns of physician anesthesiologists and their patients to be addressed.
