Make no mistake about it, the Saboteur-in-Chief is about to harm millions of Americans by unraveling the individual mandate. Health care premiums will skyrocket and many people will lose their insurance.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that 15 million Americans could lose their health care as well, as this executive order action would be similar to the Senate’s “skinny repeal” bill that axed the individual mandate.
This is TRUMPCARE.
The Trump administration has prepared an executive order that would unravel Obamacare’s individual mandate, but has put it on hold to see whether it might be included in the Republican tax bill instead, a GOP senator told the Washington Examiner.
According to the senator, an executive order is sitting with the Office of Management and Budget waiting for approval. President Trump decided to delay the executive order after Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., pushed for the inclusion of the individual mandate repeal in the tax bill, and has been supportive of its inclusion in statements he has made on Twitter.
Its effects would be similar to the “skinny repeal” bill that Republicans failed to pass this summer after three GOP senators opposed it. The CBO report on the bill projected the repeal of the individual mandate would result in 15 million more people becoming uninsured.
