When Siobhan Taylor left her corporate job about seven years ago to start her clothing business Ms. Eye Candy Boutique, one of her biggest worries was not having health insurance.
"I worked in corporate America for so long and had my insurance, and my 401K, and everything else,” Taylor said. “When you step out and decide to open your own business, you're responsible for those things and it's not affordable.”
After several years of paying most of her medical expenses out of pocket, she found coverage through the Affordable Care Act.
"I actually had a woman come in the store that was helping me with the Obamacare, and we filled out some paperwork, and she helped me out and I've had that basically ever since," she said.
But for the past two years, she's been watching President Trump and Republicans on Capitol Hill make good on their promise to repeal and replace the healthcare law.
"Me and other people that probably own businesses were panicky because we would have went back to not having insurance again and having to try to figure it out on our own and it is not affordable," she said.
After a failed effort to repeal the ACA, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently suggested Republicans might try again after the midterms.
But with Democrats winning back the House on Tuesday, McConnell quickly abandoned that plan.
While legislative attempt to repeal the law may be dead in the water, UB Political Science professor Jim Battista said President Trump can still undermine the ACA.
At least for now, Taylor said that's one thing she and other people who get their healthcare through ACA don't have to worry about.
"That's something that we don't have to sweat about anymore luckily because that is stressful," Taylor said.
