Trump's battle with 'Obamacare' moves to the courts

Trump says GOP senators are working on an Obamacare replacement and it will be ‘spectacular

The decision by the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., said the rule allowing so-called association health plans is "clearly an end run" around the federal Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, that "creates absurd results".

Despite the president's confidence in his party's ability to enact a new health care law, congressional Republicans are not so sure.

Even though all of this is bad for consumers, Trump saw it as a ideal way to kill President Barack Obama's signature health care reform after his repeal efforts died in Congress.

The City of Columbia Police Department, the Clarendon County Sheriffs' Office, and SLED are continuing to investigate this case. Nathaniel David Rowland , DOB 4/13/1994, has been arrested on charges of murder and kidnapping in the death of Josephson.


A federal judge's ruling against a type of health insurance plan designed for small business owners has some companies now thinking about what to do next.

Trump's efforts have prompted grumbles - private and public - from Republican lawmakers mindful of the uphill battle Trump is setting them up for. And he is now pinning his hopes on the courts accomplishing what he and a Republican majority in the House and Senate could not. "You know what? We'll do it a different way", Trump told his supporters at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Thursday night. (This flies in the face of the government's obligation to defend the statutes passed by Congress, but that's a matter for others to comment about.) Donald Trump said that the Republicans would present a health care plan that would be better than Obamacare, and cost less. "It's good. It's important". If the ruling is upheld by higher courts, about 20 million Americans could lose healthcare coverage on Trump's watch.

Bates' ruling comes after an intense week in the courts for the administration's health care policies.

The President said Thursday he had tasked a handful of Republican senators with cobbling together an Obamacare replacement. "Before the president said what he said, they'd been consistently focused on working on a healthcare plan".

Aside from the legal issues about the plans, there were concerns that if they became insolvent, as some did in the past, policyholders could be stuck with medical bills. They had built no consensus among Republican politicians or voters.
