Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Trump Signs Major Executive Order on Health Care

President Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway had stated during a Wednesday morning interview that Trump was “examining what he can do, executive action-wise” regarding health care reform.

After the interview, the president confirmed to reporters that he is likely to sign the order as soon as next week.

While the final decision has not been announced, a Senate Republican source for the Washington Examiner described the decision on an executive action as “a done deal.”

Following several major failures to pass Obamacare repeal, Republicans have been left without many options on conservative health care reform.

By one vote, Senate Republicans failed to pass a “skinny” health care bill over the summer. On Tuesday, Republican leaders announced they would not be putting their latest health care reform bill to a vote after numerous moderate GOP senators announced their opposition to it.

Allowing Americans to buy health insurance across state lines would generate more competition and bring costs down in the national marketplace, Republicans have long argued.

Many conservatives have already suggested that Trump has the authority to bypass the legislative process and allow for a national marketplace for health care plans.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., had predicted during a Wednesday interview on MSNBC that Trump would make such a move.

“I think there’s going to be big news from the White House in the next week or two, something they can do on their own,” Paul said, explaining that the president “can legalize on his own the ability of individuals to join a group or a health association across state lines and buy insurance.”

Given the GOP’s inability to pass health care reform on its own, Trump had also said Wednesday that he is ready to work with Democrats on a health care compromise.

The president explained to reporters that he wants to “see if I can get a health plan that is even better.”
