White House’s Executive Order Will Weaken Barack Obamacare
President Donald Trump’s White House staff have prepared an executive order that will weaken the requirement that all Americans have health insurance.
Since the individual mandate cannot be repealed by President Trump alone, the new EO would expand the “hardship exemption” to the requirement that taxpayers provide proof of insurance. However, Trump is reportedly holding off on the order in case Republicans in Congress can include a repeal of the mandate in their tax reform bill.
“Pursuant to the President’s January EO on Obamacare, we are always looking for ways to provide relief from Obamacare.
“The long-standing issues with the mandate would be best resolved legislatively.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan, (R-Wis) Sunday said on TV that the GOP bill could include a repeal of the individual mandate, but that no decision has been made.
