After multiple failed Republican attempts to repeal and or replace the Obamacare, President Donald Trump resorted to his eraser and pen to achieve some of the health care goals Americans desire.
President Trump signed an executive order intended to make lower-premium plans more accessible. The president has long talked of his desire to make plans available across state lines, something this executive order will do.
Former President Barack Obama was criticized heavily by the American people in 2014 when he said, I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” a nod to his intention to use executive action when Congress wouldn’t cooperate. President Trump has a pen as well, but he also has an eraser.
President Trump hasn’t backed down in fighting for the American people to repeal Obamacare and fulfill a signature campaign promise, despite the GOP-led Congress’ inability to agree on how to do that.
