Trump's Executive Order On Obamacare Means Everything And Does Nothing

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The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress are touting a repeal, although if the law were repealed, it's unclear what it would be replaced with.

President Donald Trump signs his first executive orders in the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. on January 20. Because the Trump order is very broad, insurance companies and other health care stakeholders will need to wait to see what agency heads end up deciding to do, several insurance sources said. The directive on the health-care law is more unusual, and it wasn't clear exactly what it requires.

Furthermore, the official White House website deleted its pages on civil rights, climate change and LGBTQ rights following Trump's inauguration.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order rolling back Obamacare, fulfilling a campaign promise to act on his first day in office, January 20, 2017.

Republicans have also said they want to loosen the rules around ObamaCare's requirements on what healthcare services an insurance plan must cover.

"Since March of 2010, the American people have had to suffer under the incredible economic burden of the Affordable Care Act-Obamacare", Trump said.

Complicating matters is the fact that Republicans, who control 52 seats in the Senate, need just 50 votes there to repeal Obamacare through the process known as budget reconciliation.

Businesses with more than 50 full-time employees are required to offer employees healthcare plans, and insurance companies are banned from turning away people with pre-existing medical conditions. But it is not clear what that new legislation would look like, or whether it would come close to maintaining the same rate of Americans now covered by health insurance.
