Win-Lose on Obama Care

What will happen to the Trump bandwagon if he follows through on his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act?
Post election interviews in Whitley County, in one of the Trump majority states, Kentucky, conducted by VOX media's Sarah Kliff revealed this voter expectation:
There was a persistent belief that Trump would fix these [cost] problems and make Obamacare work better. I kept hearing informed voters, who had watched the election closely, say they did hear the promise of repeal but simply felt Trump couldn’t repeal a law that had done so much good for them. In fact, some of the people I talked to hope that one of the more divisive pieces of the law — Medicaid expansion — might become even more robust, offering more of the working poor a chance at the same coverage the very poor receive.”
