The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to declare the Medicaid program established under president Obama unconstitutional. The administration aims to eliminate medical insurance coverage for 20 million Americans with low enough incomes to qualify for the program. At this point, the White House has not proposed an alternative solution in case they succeed in court.
