President Trump Signs Executive Order Making Low-Premium Health Insurance Plans More Available
But the changes Mr. Trump hopes to bring about could take months or even longer
WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump predicts “millions and millions of people” will benefit from his action to unwind the health care law.
He’s signed an executive order to make lower-premium plans more widely available.
But the changes Mr. Trump hopes to bring about could take months or even longer.
The proposals may not be finalized in time to affect coverage for 2019, let alone next year.
“We’re all gathered together for something that I believe is going to be very powerful for our nation and good for a lot of people,” President Trump said.
“But I do know it is a sabotage of the Affordable Care Act and quite frankly, a real dis-service to the American people, many of whom voted for him,” said Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
The president’s action is backed by North Dakota Republican leaders including the governor.
The president still believes Congress needs to repeal and replace Obamacare.
