Republicans floundered multiple ventures to substitute the Affordable Care Act this year. "It's the best way to ensure that every American finally has access to quality, affordable health care".

After former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was selected as the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, numerous voters who had backed Sanders in the primary were skeptical of her progressive chops. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) announced her support at the end of August; Sen.
