President Trump Signs An Executive Order On Health Care

President Trump must be feeling pretty desperate, because he just signed an executive order on health care. Sen. Rand Paul said this is a good first step, as it will help “reform” the current system.

What will the order do? Glad you asked!

The order will ease rules on small businesses banding together to buy health insurance, through what are known as association health plans, and lift Obama administration limits on short-term health insurance plans, according to a source on a call with administration officials Wednesday night.

The order will direct the Department of Labor to “modernize” rules to allow small employers to create association health plans, the source said. Small businesses will be able to band together if they are within the same state, in the same “line of business” or are in the same trade association.

Here are some highlights of Trump’s remarks:

Annnnnd it’s official.

Better than nothing?
