The Daily Quote

“President Trump’s executive order instructing federal agencies to grant relief to constituencies affected by the Affordable Care Act has begun to reverberate throughout the nation’s health-care system, injecting further uncertainty into an already unsettled insurance landscape.  The political signal of the order, which Trump signed just hours after being sworn into office, was clear: Even before the Republican-led Congress acts to repeal the 2010 law, the new administration will move swiftly to unwind as many elements as it can on its own — elements that have changed how 20 million Americans get health coverage and what benefits insurers must offer some of their customers… On Capitol Hill, Republican leaders offered cautious praise for the president’s executive order. Yet more broadly, the GOP remains in a state of uncertainty on health care, with unresolved questions about the path forward.”
