Trump Administration Asks Court To Totally Repeal Obamacare

Trump Administration Asks Court To Totally Repeal Obamacare

It's part of their plan to move the spotlight away from the recently concluded Mueller investigation into Russian Federation and set out a legislative record they can run on in 2020. People are anxious, especially my part of the country about children being born with diabetes and how they are going to get health care.

In the meantime Democrats will try to paint the administration - and Mr Trump - as being in favour of abandoning reforms that have expanded the rolls of those with health insurance and guaranteed that any pre-existing conditions are covered when Americans switch or lose their insurer.

Some Senate Republicans said that while Trump didn't offer any details on what health care in the US might look like if the states' challenge succeeds, they said it was too early to be certain. "But to me, it may well prove to be evidence of treason at the Justice Department, trying to take out a president", said Representative Louie Gohmert, a committee Republican.

"It is a top-of-mind issue for voters; and for Republicans, having a health care plan is very important". But that possibility was foreclosed when Democrats won control of the House in last year's midterm elections. The 41 percent who cited it preferred Democratic candidates over Republicans by a jarring margin of 75 to 23 percent. The fact that President Trump has yet to comply with various clauses of our US Constitution sets a unsafe precedent.

"For (Trump) to bring this back up is traumatic, and it shines a real light on what the contrast is going to be between him and whoever the Democratic nominee is", said Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the Democratic group American Bridge. While most people associate Obamacare with the individual health insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion, it has far wider impact. It has always been a target of conservatives for its tax hikes, regulations and new spending, which they argue have exacerbated the health care system. Mike Braun, R-Ind., told reporters after the president addressed a closed-door meeting of GOP senators.

"The Department of Justice has determined that the district court's judgment should be affirmed", they wrote, asking that no "portion of the district court's judgment be reversed".

Apple will release 10.2-inch and 10.5-inch iPads this year
It is unclear how Apple plans to differentiate the two tablets, given the screen sizes of the tablets are quite the same. My take: Potential antitrust pitfalls aside, the Bloomberg piece is a well-reported walk-up to Apple's March 25 event .

The Justice Department is supporting a federal judge's ruling that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is unconstitutional in a case that could eventually be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. When Congress reduced that penalty to zero in 2017, it effectively removed the high court's justification for upholding the act.

The filing reflected "a strictly political decision, not a legal decision", Jost said.

"How can you be injured by a tax that doesn't exist?"

But the lack of a viable alternative to Obamacare has left some Republicans concerned that the administration's latest move will prove damaging heading into the 2020 campaign season. It's rare for Justice to decline to defend a federal law. But he added "I don't think we should kill it until we have a replacement".

This was a solid strategy during the 2016 GOP primary: Trump was able to carve out a base by going hard on immigration while chucking other parts of conservative (especially economic) philosophy - and keeping his primary opponents from getting media coverage by constantly generating wild new stories about himself.

The California Republican's office didn't immediately return a request for comment. Regardless of the outcome, the 5th Circuit's ruling is likely to be appealed to the Supreme Court, according to Politico.
