President Trump signed his first executive order in his new redecorated office, Late Friday. President Trump targeted Obamacare, plus his administration ordered an immediate freeze on the new regulations just after the inaugurations.
As, it was not clear what the tangible effects of the order would be.
Trump signed the executive order in the Oval Office as his first actions. The direct agencies will grant the relief to all the constituencies that are affected by health care law that came into action in the year of 2010.
However, some of these laws are embedded in the system, so it is not yet clear that what latitude this executive branch will have.
In addition to that, the target is on about ease the economic and regulate the burden with the long-standing Republican conviction that the government exerts on the U.S health-care system.
Larry Levitt, senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation stated that:
Potentially the biggest effect of this order could be widespread waivers from the individual mandate, which would likely create chaos in the individual insurance market.
This doesn’t grant any new powers to federal agencies, but it sends a clear signal that they should use whatever authority they have to scale back regulations and penalties. The Trump Administration is looking to unwind the ACA, not necessarily waiting for Congress.
