Trump executive order smashes Insurance Company Crony Rules

Of course, this piece is as negative as possible.

You have to dig before you find out it will remove all kinds of barriers, including on Association Insurance, Cheaper, less Comprehensive Plans (ie no more "BMW or Bust", making Aetna sad; insurance companies hate Catastrophic Insurance in the market), may allow smaller companies band together to buy in bulk, reducing Insurance Company Profits and making them sad middlemen.

All the NYT cares about is shilling for their Corporate Cronies in the FIRE industry, ignoring the premium explosions under Golden Child's Obamacare, which allegedly saved health care in the USA.

Trump is expanding AHPs, HRAs, and a whole bunch of new initiatives to try to get competition going to reduce the insane, inefficient, and higher cost of health care since the Great Corporate Insurance Subsidy was passed. It's a crisis because in half the counties in the United States, even after many states took all the sicker people to medicaid to help Big Finance winnow out costs and increase profits, about half of all counties in the USA have only "One" Choice for the mandated individual insurance - literally a monopoly condition existing in half the country.

Because it'll take months to publish new rules, he's pushing Congress to act. GOPe doesn't want to act, they LIKE ObamneyCare and DACA.

This is great--the longer Trump keeps healthcare in the spotlight, the better it is for Dems.

I can't wait until people who sign up for the new policies try to put in a claim... Wait until those horror stories start circulating.
