Trump signs order to change Obamacare

From NHK

US President Donald Trump has issued an executive order to change the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Trump made repealing and replacing the health-care law introduced by former President Barack Obama one of his main campaign pledges. But a bill to overturn Obamacare has met opposition from Democrats and some Republicans.

Trump signed the order at the White House on Thursday.
He said he is taking crucial steps toward saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare.

The order says it takes into account public discontent about the high cost of Obamacare and directs the administration to develop policies that lower costs.

Trump's order seeks to make it easier for small firms to join together as associations across state lines to buy cheaper, less regulated health plans.

Trump said this is only the beginning. He said that in the coming months, he plans to take new measures to provide Americans with even more relief and more freedom.

He said he will also press Congress very strongly to finish the repeal and replacement of Obamacare once and for all.

The chair of the Democratic National Committee issued a statement. Describing the executive order as "Trump's recklessness," it said that the order will undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions and raise premiums for those who need affordable health-care the most.
