Trump signs Executive Order further Undermining Obamacare

Just this morning Trump spoke about his new executive order that will give us the best Healthcare because Obamacare is so bad. He was so excited about how good this new care is that he almost forgot to sign the Exec. Order and started to walk away. V.P. Pence had to stop him.

From Vox:

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 ultimate impact will depend on any new regulations written as a result of the order, but overall, the Trump administration could make cheaper plans with skimpier benefits more available — and experts worry that will damage the ACA’s marketplaces.

“The president still firmly believes that Congress must act to repeal and replace Obamacare, but before that can be done, this administration must act to provide relief,” Andrew Bremberg, who oversees domestic policy at the White House, told reporters Thursday morning. “We expect these policy changes to potentially benefit tens of millions of Americans over time.”

Policy experts warn that together, these changes could represent a serious threat to Obamacare: Trump wants to open more loopholes for more people to buy insurance outside the health care law’s markets, which experts anticipate would destabilize the market for customers who are left behind with higher premiums and fewer insurers.

Trump is bound and determined to undo Obamacare and everything good Obama did for us.

    This Latest Michael Flynn Story Goes Way Beyond ‘Not Normal’
    Would you put a $15 million kidnapping scandal past this administration?

    BY CHARLES P. PIERCE
    NOV 10, 2017

    …It is easy to end this with how this is Not Normal. But there are degrees of Not Normal. Ivanka Trump in important international conferences is Not Normal. The president* yielding to the Chinese regarding press availabilities is Not Normal. Scott Pruitt at EPA is Not Normal. But Flynn’s alleged escapades push the frontiers of Not Normal far beyond any limits we could have anticipated. This is dung-for-dinner Not Normal. This is Me Flying The Space Shuttle Not Normal. This is Snow In The Gobi Not Normal. Some day, one of these people is going to get up at a podium and bite the head off a live chicken.

    Eliot Ness: You son of a bitch, you murdered them in cold blood!
    Al Capone: No I didn’t
    Ness: Oh. I guess Investigation over. I mean, every time he sees me he says, “I didn’t do that,” and I really believe him. You can only ask so many times. I think he’s very insulted by it..

    I see Fox News is doing its best to defend Moore,by discrediting women who are
    coming forward with allegations of disgusting sexual behaviour. I was expecting
    the Fox people to do a better job of it though, given that they’ve had so much
    practice in the last few months.

    Before, we were fighting ACA repeal with a hidden tax cut for the rich.
    Now, we’re fighting a tax cut for the rich with hidden ACA repeal.
