At beginning of the Trump Administration, two executive orders were signed concerning healthcare coverage. The first executive order was directed to federal agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay” all taxes or penalties possible and for agencies to ignore the ACA “to the maximum extent permitted by law” (Kliff, 2017). In addition to this, Trump said this executive order is aimed at “moving toward lower costs and more options in the health care market and taking crucial steps toward saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare” (Pear, Haberman, & Abelson, 2017). The current Trump administration has addressed the issue of affordable health insuranceby actively staying involved and attempting to make it more manageable for all Americans. ResourcesKliff, S.
