Gene Green accuses Trump of 'sabotage' in undermining Obamacare

Gene Green accuses Trump of 'sabotage' in undermining Obamacare

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017The Trump administration said Monday the number of customers paying for ObamaCare plans in February was almost 2 million fewer than the number who signed up for the plan, CNBC reported. "Let's take those 10 percent of really sick people, put them in a federal managed care system, so they will get better outcomes, and save the private sector market, if we can't do this by ourselves", Sen.

Since Trump's inauguration, CMS' leaders, and that of its parent, the Health and Human Services Department, have gone from being the main cheerleaders for Obamacare to being among its harshest critics.

In addition, CMS projects that another 40 percent of the country - 1,200 counties - will have just one insurer active on health insurance exchanges in 2018.

North Korea 'releases jailed U.S. student'
Warmbier, 22, is due to arrive home in Cincinnati on Tuesday evening, after a stop at a USA military facility near Sapporo, Japan. But efforts to persuade North Korea to release the men now held had not been successful until Warmbier's release Tuesday.


The expansion comes after several insurers said over the past few weeks that they are leaving the ACA exchanges in various states.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said the Trump administration's decision to hold cost-sharing payments "hostage as a political tool" is to blame for insurance companies deciding not to offer coverage in certain areas. In Washington, where insurers offering marketplace plans filed requests last week, two counties were left without any insurer options for next year. CMS indicated it is working with state departments of insurance and carriers to restore access to healthcare plans.

Anthem, which announced its exit from Ohio's exchange last week, and other insurers that have pulled back from some markets point to uncertainty around one key factor: Whether the government plans to keep funding the ACA's cost-sharing reduction payments, which help lower-income people afford certain health care costs. The report found that average monthly premiums increased from $224 in 2013 to $476 in 2014.

European Union and United Kingdom citizens should not fret over Brexit future, Davis says
Theresa May has been warned she will have to re-think her Brexit negotiating strategy following her humiliation at the ballot box. The Conservatives won 318 seats in the election, eight short of an outright majority.


A White House spokesman said Tuesday they are still considering their options for how to move forward with the issue.

"Obamacare has been broken, it's been a broken promise", Trump said". Instead, senators said, Trump's primary message was to pass a bill.

Pointing to recent CMS data showing Affordable Care Act exchange enrollment was declining, Pence told HHS employees that the Trump administration is committed to repealing and replacing the healthcare law. "That's what I'm saying", Trump said during the meeting, which 15 senators attended, according to a pool report. "The situation right now in many areas is simply unacceptable", Price said.
