U.S. Senator John Thune says he’s in favor of an effort to repeal part of the Affordable Care Act now making its way through congress. The move fulfills a promise made by many in the GOP to see the act removed. But, President Obama is expected to veto any repeal effort.
Some in South Dakota worry repealing the act would hurt Native Americans and those in the state who lack adequate health care coverage.
Thune says the Affordable Care Act has failed. He supports repealing a number of provisions within the act.
