Explain how each of the   presidential administrations approached the issue.

Trump dismantled Obama care   stating that it was overpriced insurance that was not beneficial to the   consumer. He rid of the tax fee that was mandated for those who did not have   insurance. He works to get cost of insurance down while increasing the   quality of services provided to the everyday consumer. His goal is to have   the consumer have a transparent view of what they are paying for before they   buy.

Obama wanted to make   healthcare obtainable to everyone. He made a marketplace and required   everyone who could afford healthcare to purchase some form of plan, if you   did not buy this plan you were slapped with tax penalties. His thought   process in this was more people will be in the marketplace, making more money   for insurance providers, and this will ultimate drive down the cost of   insurance. He made money available to those who needed assistance with buying   insurance

Bush was in an economic   downfall. He was trying to help provide affordable healthcare to those who   needed it, but the money was not there to fulfill all his goals. He cut cost   to two of the most important insurance providers to Americans.
