New poll shows Obamacare is more popular than Donald Trump

Darnell ReidJan 24, 2017

Tim Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee College, and supporter of the law explained to Vox's Sarah Kliff that Trump can't repeal the law unilaterally, so the phrase "to the maximum extent permitted by law" is included in the directives.

President Trump used his first executive order late Friday to immediately undercut his predecessor's signature health care law, ordering federal agencies to ease the "regulatory burdens" of ObamaCare - a move that could be aimed at rolling back the law's so-called individual mandate.

"The costs and consequences of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act for New Jersey would be severe", Sweeney said.

"I think he's been advised that he can't repeal the Affordable Care Act through executive action, and now we see where this goes", Jost says.

"It's a mix of symbolic arm waving (lacking more specific and targeted details) and directional guidance to empower Trump administration officials to lean against more regulation on the margin", Tom Miller, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told CNN Money.

"So people who count as having health care actually can't access it", she said.


Republicans are pledging a repeal of Obamacare and rapid votes on a replacement bill in order to prevent gaps in coverage and reassure a restless insurance industry.

"I$3 ts broad language gave federal agencies wide latitude to change, delay or waive provisions of the law that they deemed overly costly for insurers, drug makers, doctors, patients or states", wrote the Times, "suggesting that it could have wide-ranging impact, and essentially allowing the dismantling of the law to begin even before Congress moves to repeal it".

Kaiser Health News (KHN) is a national health policy news service. New rules are required to undo or reform old ones. Alliance Insurance Company owner, Christopher Cook, says insurance contracts are effective through the end of the year.

The Trump administration can rewrite regulations carrying out the legislation. Trump's administration wants the HHR Secretary to interpret this part of the law loosely and exempt more uninsured people from the penalty.

But afterward, Barack Obama said, the couple would start work on several projects, most prominently the Obama Foundation, which will be based on the south side of Chicago, and will be a "living, working center for citizenship" that will work on unspecified projects in that city, as well as the rest of the country and all over the world.
