8. To repeal the law it will take the House, the Senate and the President.

Or, if the president vetoes a repeal, it will take an override of the veto.

Until that happens, the ACA is the law of the land. Insurance companies will have to provide health insurance to anyone who applies and pays the premium, including those with pre-existing conditions.

If the Insurance companies insist on raising rates or going out of the business, the ACA will become a mute point as Health care insurance won't be available to many who want it. At that point, it will be back to what we had, or forward to single payer, government administered Medicare for all. How bad would that be?
