Call Duffy on ACA repeal

But repeal smacks of a vendetta on the part of Republicans, who called for repeal before we even knew what the problems were with the law.

In addition to the presidential action on Obamacare, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus will also send out a memo to all government agencies and departments calling for a regulatory freeze, Spicer said. This is partly because each state has different health care regulations, so jurisdiction is important.

The Kaiser Family Foundation found that the Affordable Care Act contributed to a significant reduction in the average annual growth in total Medicare spending and extended the solvency of the Medicare trust fund by 13 years.

The Trump Administration is in process of its fast replacement. "Trump just announced over the weekend that every American is going to have health care".

With passage of budget resolutions in the House and Senate, Congressional efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act are underway. The order says "It is the policy of my administration to seek the prompt repeal" of the law.

Trump said additionally said insurance companies would pick up the costs for 'people that can afford it'.

Granting broad exemptions without other changes could create chaos in the insurance marketplaces created by the ACA that mainly cover people without employer-sponsored coverage.

76 percent oppose eliminating funding for health coverage that will result in nearly 30 million Americans losing their health insurance, including 4 million children.

Since it was enacted in March 2010, the ACA aimed to provide consumers with subsidies that lower health costs, expand the Medicaid program and support innovative medical care delivery methods that lower health costs overall. Republican leaders in Congress, however, have said they have not been consulted. For example, GOP lawmakers in Congress have proposed an exemption for people in areas where only one insurer offers coverage - now about a third of USA counties.

Mr Trump demands that the law requiring Americans to purchase health insurance is abolished and proposes that individuals are allowed to use tax-free Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) to pay for treatments.
