Trump says in the order that he will seek “prompt repeal” of the Affordable Care…

Trump says in the order that he will seek “prompt repeal” of the Affordable Care Act. Pending full repeal, however, he will “take all actions consistent with law to minimize the unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens of the Act.” He also says the executive order will give individual states “more flexibility and control to create a more free and open healthcare market.”

The executive order continues:

To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (Secretary) and the heads of all other executive departments and agencies (agencies) with authorities and responsibilities under the Act shall exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of the Act that would impose a fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.

According to Fox News, Trump’s chief of staff Reince Priebus also issued a memo that directs federal agencies to freeze all new regulations and those that may be in the pipeline until the Trump administration is able to review them.

Republicans in Congress began the process of repealing Obamacare last week with an addendum to a budget bill.

  1. Does this mean that our fine for my wife not having insurance last year will be less?

  2. Wow he’s not wasting any time I thought he would be partying until Monday but it seems he can’t wait to get started with his new job.

  3. Wait, didn’t people complain about Obama using executive orders?

  4. This is bullshit. They have NOTHING to replace it with! Innocent, sick people are going to die because of this monster, and any won’t even care UNTIL IT EFFECTS THEM!

  5. Looks like pP. Presidential man at that desk r. That knows what he is doing. Ooooohaaa

  6. Just wish Trump would not get rid of this health care. Please fix it or replace it. Please do not leave American with no health insurance.

  7. I cant beleive anyone would think that they would leave all the 20 million hanging. That would be polical suicide….BUT i was left hanging by obama, my insurance was canceled. Yes, i was one of the 7 million who had their existing plan canceled…no body cared then

  8. Oh yes. Ease the burden by taking health coverage from millions.

  9. Implement single-payer universal health care.


  11. Want to see Trump do something ? Tell him he can’t do it. Reality is about to set in in D.C.!

  12. I don’t know anymore who hasn’t lost there health care plan and had to replace it with a different plan and all of our premiums have gone sky high,some have doubled in much for obama’s affordable care act.

  13. Sorry Michaele,, get the BS Wax out of your ears and maybe,,just maybe,you will begin to understand what ” No one will lose their coverage means” such a DAL comment

  14. America is no longer an obamanation. When will libtards realize trumps not that dumb. Great way to remove obamacare without fucking everyone over.

  15. Finally a politician who keeps his campaign promises. The affordable health care act was anything but!

  16. Trump knows what he’s doing, that’s why he’s a billionaire,

  17. Ease burden …. not get rid of. It will be a process to replace ACA, just like it was a process to implement it, this is just the 1st step.

  18. I’m here to say that I had the affordable Care act last year and it was really reasonable if not for that I would not know what’s going on with my health, but for the two years that I did not have it I was fined they took it directly out of my taxes, so I feel I paid for my medical one way and the other. So is he getting rid of it, or revising it?

  19. Im glad they are at least getting rid of the penalty for those who cant afford to carry health care with a freaking tax fine that was included in Obama care

  20. Eat right, exercise, drink liquid that is good for you. Stop wanting the government to tell you how to live, for Pete’s sake, GTH up

  21. I was one of the many that lost the insurance plan I had.

  22. Amazing how many commenting here suffer from lack of reading comprehension.
