1-26-17_trump20aca  Republicans have been talking about repealing the Affordable Care Act for years, and on President Trump’s first day in the office, he made steps toward doing just that. While the Affordable Care Act is still law, an executive order signed by the newly inaugurated president may undo much of it.

What Does the Executive Order Say?

The executive order does not specify parts of the Affordable Care Act. Instead, it uses sweeping language to give agencies the ability to reduce financial burdens imposed by the health care law.

Another section of the executive order calls for more flexibility for states in the implementation of their health care programs.
