People getting ‘hammered’ by Obamacare costs, analyst says


Frustrated by congressional gridlock and endless reports of massive premium hikes for the coming year, President Trump Thursday signed an executive order that utilizes the free market to give struggling Americans more and cheaper health care options until lawmakers come up with something permanent.

The executive order directs the Department of Labor to allow the creation of association health plans, or AHP’s, which give the green light for Americans to pool resources and negotiate better rates for premiums, deductibles, and co-payments. It also suggests current law can be interpreted to allow for the purchasing of health coverage across state lines.
