President Donald Trump took office two years ago with a pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The chart on the right shows important provisions of the ACA, the Trump administration's actions, and the effects in Colorado. Click on the graphic or the link at the bottom of the page to display a large chart that can be downloaded and printed on 11-inch by 17-inch paper.
