Former President Barack Obama initiated one of the most devastating acts of legislation for Americans in modern times.

While claiming to bring health services to millions, the Affordable Care Act actually left millions without insurance they could afford leaving them with few viable options.

For months, President Trump has been promising a major move against Obamacare—and he may have just carried out that promise.

As of late last week, President Trump signed an order confirming the government will no longer pay for insurance subsidies through ObamaCare.

The Daily Caller reported:

The U.S. government cannot lawfully continue making the cost-sharing reduction payments (CSRs) that help prop up the Affordable Care Act, the White House announced in a statement. President Donald Trump’s decision to nix CSRs comes after several months of flirting with the idea.

“The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system,” the White House said in a statement announcing the decision. “Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.”

President Trump has considered ending the subsidies on several occasions before but faced backlash from several groups.

And with Trump’s announcement came a wave of fury from congressional leaders, claiming that congressional approval was needed to end the subsidies.

The Daily Caller continued:

Trump has considered eliminating the CSRs on several occasions, but decided to pull back while an impending lawsuit filed against the president’s predecessor in 2014 made its way through the courts. Lawmakers filed suit against the Obama administration at the time, claiming that it was illegally reimbursing marketplace insurers for CSRs.

Former House Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders argued that CSRs require congressional approval. Congress had never explicitly appropriated the funds for those payments, they argued, which made the administration’s actions unconstitutional.

After nearly two years of deliberation, a federal district court concluded the House’s claim had legal standing, and allowed the case to move forward in May 2016.

Trump’s decision to nix CSRs comes after he signed an executive order Thursday afternoon to begin formulating an approach to allow small businesses to join together across state lines to purchase coverage through what are known as Association Health Plans (AHPs). The executive order also expands access to short-term coverage plans that don’t comply with Obamacare requirements.

Though ObamaCare is on its last legs thanks to President Trump’s efforts, the bill must still be repealed and replaced for good.

Do you believe President Trump made any move that undermined Congress on this issue?
