With the failure by Republicans in Congress to repeal Obamacare this year, President Trump is taking matters into his own hands, signing an executive order Thursday that targets the health care law.
Trump is asking federal agencies to look for ways to expand the use of association health plans, groups of small businesses that pool together to buy health insurance, and to broaden the definition of short-term insurance, which is exempt from the Affordable Care Act’s rules, administration officials said.
The president was joined at the signing by several Republican lawmakers, including Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who called it “the biggest free market reform of health care in a generation.”
“This reform, if it works and goes as planned, will allow millions of people to get insurance across state lines at an inexpensive price,” Paul said.
It seems that this move made by the President was not welcomed by some liberal attorney general from 20 states!
Nearly 20 states have filed a lawsuit against President Trump over his decision earlier this week to stop key payments that lower health insurance deductibles and co-pays for millions of Americans with modest incomes.
Attorneys general from California, Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts and New York are among the states that announced they had filed the lawsuit in federal court in California Friday. Mr. Trump said Thursday he would end the cost-sharing subsidies, which are given to insurance companies to keep premiums down for lower-income Americans. The states’ attorneys general says Mr. Trump is not following federal law in ending a legally mandated system that already is operating.
This is the desperate call from the liberals to stop President Trump!
