Trump regulatory approach to free market health insurance reform creates national market for insurance

Oct. 12, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for issuing an executive order directing the Department of Labor to examine new regulations that will allow for the sale of association health plans across state lines:

“President Trump has wisely asked the Department of Labor to examine the law and body of regulation to determine whether new regulations can be put into effect allowing for the sale of association health plans across state lines. The vast majority of Obamacare was written by federal bureaucrats interpreting the law via the regulatory process. President Trump’s direction to the Department of Labor will now use that same process, created by Congress, to inject competition into the health care markets. The great news is that this competition promises to allow more Americans more choices at an affordable cost, truly providing affordable health care options, unlike Obamacare.”
