( CNN) Donald Trump might be suddenly stimulating some noises in the direction of preserving parts of Obamacare, but let's be realistic.

There's every reason to believe that what we know as the Affordable Care Act, President Obama's central achievement, won't survive Trump's presidency. While President-elect Trump's campaign pledge to have Congress repeal Obamacare on day one isn't technically feasible, it's likely he'll largely dismantle this capstone progressive program, thanks to the supportive Republican Congress he'll enjoy( at the least until the midterm elections ).
