Nikki Haley’s New Year’s Resolution: Repeal the Affordable Care Act

CONCORD, NH — New Year’s resolutions are a time for change, but Nikki Haley’s list includes the same anti-affordable health care agenda she’s been pushing for years. Haley has spent her career opposing the Affordable Care Act, a lifeline for tens of thousands of Granite Staters — including as many as 233,000 with preexisting conditions. Now, she is making it clear that she’d consider repealing the ACA if given the chance. Haley opened the door to repeal last month, railed against the program for years, and is proudly touting her endorsement from the Koch network — which has spent a decade and tens of millions of dollars pushing for ACA repeal.

Take a look at Nikki Haley’s yearslong war on the ACA:

  • In New Hampshire last month, Haley opened the door to repealing the Affordable Care Act, doubling down on the MAGA agenda to endanger health care access for tens of thousands of Granite Staters. 

  • As South Carolina governor, Haley repeatedly railed against the ACA, even calling to “defund” the program.

  • Haley refused to expand Medicaid under the ACA, which could have helped South Carolinians struggling with addiction access care — all while opioid deaths rose in South Carolina higher than the national rate.

  • Haley’s refusal to expand Medicaid left her own constituents uninsured and forced to pay exorbitant health care costs. 

  • But don’t just take it from us, here’s what Haley herself has proudly said about her anti-ACA record: “We have fought Obamacare in South Carolina as much as we possibly could. We said no to the state exchanges. We said no to the Medicaid expansion.”
