Trump Administration Asks Court To Totally Repeal Obamacare

Trump Administration Asks Court To Totally Repeal Obamacare

It's pure political cruelty. But the administration faced a deadline to stake out the extent of its request to undo the law after a Texas federal judge ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act had been invalidated.

'This decision to even go more broadly in failing to defend the law is very disappointing, ' she said. However, during the 2017 congressional debate over repealing the health law, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated the GOP replacement plans would result in steep coverage losses.

"That obviously hurt us last November because it was mischaracterized, but we can do a lot better job of taking care of pre-existing conditions", Wicker said. He concluded that, since the Individual Mandate was "unconstitutional" and "inseverable" from the rest of the law, the entire law was therefore "invalid". In briefs filed with the appellate court, House lawyers said that if O'Connor's ruling were upheld "the consequences will be devastating". The Justice Department now says that President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement should be wiped out. Exit polls published by CNN found that health care was the top issue for 2018 voters in House elections across the country.

"When Democrats are setting themselves ablaze by advocating for the destruction of American health care, try to resist the temptation of asking them to pass the kerosene", tweeted Josh Holmes, a Republican consultant who previously served as chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Speaking of a new health care proposal - still unproposed - Trump promised on Wednesday that "we're coming up with plans" and his GOP was the party of "great health care". 52 million Americans have pre-existing conditions. "So, I think according to the Lindsey Graham standard, that absolutely, does Trump meet that bar?"

Yet just as Trump should be riding a wave of generally good press, his administration seems to be looking for ways to inflict wounds on itself.

An elimination of the ACA would have a huge impact in CT, which enthusiastically implemented Obamacare.

"But it's not just health care", Colbert said: Trump also wants to end aid to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. "Right off the bat, the popular parts everyone wants to keep would be thrown out - having kids on the policy until 26, no annual limits, no lifetime limits - along with the parts people object to".

"It would be catastrophic". The tax overhaul repealed the individual mandate, which required Americans to either get health insurance or face a financial penalty.

But in a sign that Trump now feels more than fully vindicated, he suggested Monday that the investigators should themselves come under scrutiny. Frank Pallone Jr., who chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee that has jurisdiction over health care.

"What is the number one issue still out there?"

Overturning the law would have far-reaching consequences - way beyond disrupting coverage for the millions of people who get their health insurance on the exchanges or through Medicaid expansion.
