Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton sparred over Obamacare during the second presidential debate on Sunday, outlining how they would reform the health insurance system.

“Obamacare is a disaster,” Trump said. “You know it, we all know it.”

The candidates responded to a question on how they would bring down the costs of healthcare which surged after the Affordable Care Act was passed.

Americans are paying more out of pocket for their medical care than ever before, partially because of the rise of high-deductible plans . Also, the percentage of Americans’ income spent on healthcare is increasing.

South Carolina became the fifth state to have only one company offering health insurance through its Affordable Care Act exchange.

The South Carolina Department of Insurance announced on Tuesday that Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina will be the sole provider for South Carolinians looking to get covered through the ACA, better known as Obamacare, according to The Post and Courier.
