FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Connecticut will be one of the state's most impacted by President Donald Trump's executive order to begin reversing the Affordable Care Act, according to a study by WalletHub.

Connecticut ranked 10th in WalletHub's report of how the order will affect residents. WalletHub analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across seven key metrics. The WalletHub study said Connecticut ranks fourth in the nation in terms of potential economic impact.
