POTUS Trump Planning Executive Order Striking Down Key Obamacare Mandate
On Saturday President Trump signaled he reached out to Democrat leader Chuck Schumer to see if Democrats want to help shape a healthcare deal.
This comes after Republican leaders, with majorities in both the House and Senate, failed to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring relief to the millions of working Americans who are suffering under the Democrat law.
Democrats lied to Americans in passing the law saying premiums would go down and families would save money with their plan. They knew this was a lie but passed it anyway.
Unfortunately, Republicans failed to help working class Americans and repeal this law.
The New York Post reported:
President Trump confirmed Saturday that he’s made fresh overtures to Senate Democrats in hope of reaching a health care deal.
“I called [Senate minority leader] Chuck Schumer yesterday to see if the Dems want to do a great HealthCare Bill,” Trump tweeted at 8:17 am. “ObamaCare is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!”
The president’s call signaled his impatience with the gridlocked GOP majorities in Congress, which have failed in multiple attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act this year.
“It shows the President can move without hesitation or ideological impediment to make a deal with the Dems,” a Republican source told Axios.
One of President Trump’s core campaign promises was to repeal and replace Obamacare. At every turn, RINOS such as Senators John McCain and Susan Collins have thwarted the effort. According to a new report, President Trump is taking matters into his own hands with an executive order, which will allow individuals to make health care insurance purchases across state lines.
From Fox News:
The White House is putting the finishing touches on an executive order that would expand health care options with allowing individuals to band together and buy insurance beyond their state lines, according to reports.
The order, which is expected to be signed by President Trump next week, will be aimed at expanding insurance options for Americans who buy their own coverage or receive it through working at a small company, according to the Wall Street Journal. The new options would broaden instructions for agencies to explore loosening regulations and lowering premiums.
President Donald Trump has long asserted that selling insurance across state lines would trigger competition that brings down premiums for people buying their own policies. He is expected to sign the executive order next week, likely on Thursday, a senior administration official told The Associated Press on Sunday.
