Trump has steered the health care system right in ways that Biden could find hard to untangle, especially with an uncooperative Congress.

Joe Biden may not be able to unwind everything President Donald Trump has done to diminish Obamacare.

Despite Trump’s failure to repeal Obamacare, he’s forced changes on the health care system that Biden will find hard to immediately reverse, if at all. Trump’s expansion of skimpier health insurance alternatives to Obamacare, curbs on reproductive health funding and rollback of contraception coverage have been upheld in the courts. Efforts to reverse those policies are likely to draw legal battles in a court system that will bear the imprint of Trump’s conservative appointees for years.
