Stefanik Applauds Trump Action On Health CarePosted: Updated:
North country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik says she supports "President Trump’s effort to expand choice in healthcare for families and businesses."
Trump has signed an executive order that aims to make lower-premium health care plans available to more Americans. The president says the order will provide what he calls "Obamacare relief" for millions of Americans.
Trump is relying on the executive order because the Republican-controlled Congress has been unable to pass a plan to repeal and replace the Obama-era health care law.
Trump says the health care system "will get better" with his action, and the action will cost the federal government nothing.
“Families and businesses in my district deserve more choice in healthcare, and I applaud these efforts to lower costs,” said Stefanik (R. - 21st District). “Allowing employers to pool together and purchase insurance across state lines is commonsense and will allow more people to access affordable coverage. I will continue to work in Congress on bipartisan healthcare solutions to help lower costs, increase access and improve quality.”
The president says he still wants Congress repeal and replace the Obama health care law. But his says his order will give people more competition, more choices and lower premiums.
