This week, over on the Election Central Web site, the main story takes a look at congressional Republicans newest effort to replace the Affordable Care Act with their own national health care reform package. But their first effort–The American Health Care Act–didn’t go so well. What is different this time?

April 29th marks an important day in Washington D.C. for several reasons. First, it’s President Trump’s 100th day in office. Second, the current federal operating budget runs out – which could cause the federal government to shut down partially if Congress can’t get a new budget approved. And if that weren’t enough, President Trump and Congressional Republicans are working hard to squeeze through yet another revised version of their health care plan to replace the ACA (the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare”).
