President Trump signed an executive order on Thursday to make it easier for small businesses and individuals to band together and offer coverage across state lines. The executive order aims to offer “alternatives” to Obamacare plans and increase competition to drive down costs.
Trump stated as he signed the executive order:
“So this is promoting health care, choice and competition all across the United States. This is going to be something that millions and millions of people will be signing up for and they’re going to be very happy. This will be great health care.”
“We are going to also pressure Congress very strongly to finish the repeal and the replace of ObamaCare once and for all.”
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called the president’s executive action, “The biggest free market reform of health care in a generation.”
