    The White House announced Thursday that President Trump is taking executive action on health care as Congress stalls on efforts to overhaul ObamaCare, calling for a plan that could let employers band together and offer coverage across state lines. An executive order Trump plans to sign Thursday morning aims to offer “alternatives” to ObamaCare plans and increase competition to bring down costs. “The time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines, which will create a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring costs way down and provide far better care,” Trump said in...
  • Trump Drains Obamacare’s Regulatory Swamp

    Having provoked much progressive sputtering and head spinning last Friday by issuing new regulations weakening the notorious HHS contraception mandate, President Trump is poised to sign an executive order that will further dry up Obamacare’s regulatory morass. The Wall Street Journal reports that the order will expand enrollee options restricted by the Obama administration — allowing coverage to be purchased through association health plans, encouraging the sale of short-term medical insurance, and permitting pretax funds from health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) to be used for premiums on health plans. The impending order has already drawn satisfying charges of “sabotage” from Obamacare...
  • Travel Ban Case Has 'Come Down to a Judicial Reading' of Trump's Campaign Muslim Ban Remarks

    WASHINGTON – In a potential Supreme Court preview, two attorneys on Thursday argued about the validity of the high court considering President Trump’s comments about Muslims as evidence when deciding the fate of his travel ban. “This entire thing has come down to a judicial reading of (President Trump’s) campaign statements to issue a major constitutional ruling,” Will Consovoy, a partner at Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC, said at the Heritage Foundation. Consovoy, whose firm has filed an amicus brief in support of the travel ban order, said that he would find it deeply troubling if the Supreme Court were to...

    Donald Trump is preparing an executive order that would achieve a long standing goal of insurance reform advocates.  The president's executive order will reportedly allow individuals to join group plans from out of state.  Current law allows companies to sell across state linesn but due to red tape and resistance by state insurance officials, most companies refuse to take advantage of the opportunity. The order would allow consumers to join associations and group health plans located in other states. ABC News: Current law allows companies to sell health insurance across state lines, but so far few have offered out-of-state...

    PUTTING IT IN PERSPECTIVE   After the Trump administration issued a third version of its executive order regarding immigration on Sunday, the Supreme Court justices asked the parties involved to file briefs by Oct. 5. SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS—A few days ago, Oct. 10 had been circled on calendars around the country – the day the Trump administration would make its first appearance before the US Supreme Court, to argue for the full enforcement of President Trump’s controversial “travel ban” executive order. Monday afternoon, in a one-paragraph order, the justices kicked that can down the road. One of the longest, most...

    Yesterday New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order barring law enforcement officials from inquiring about the citizenship status of suspects during investigations. It would also apply to other state agencies outside of law enforcement in most cases. In other words, rather than just refusing to cooperate with ICE when they seek to deport illegal aliens, Cuomo is raising the bar and basically pretending that we don’t even have any immigration laws.While I’m sure there were plenty of Social Justice Warriors in New York City cheering the announcement, it didn’t go over so well with everyone. That includes...

    The Trump administration wants a judge to nix a legal challenge to a presidential order easing enforcement of an IRS rule that limited religious organizations’ political activity. The Justice Department on Tuesday asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed in May by a Wisconsin-based atheist group. The Freedom From Religion Foundation argues President Donald Trump’s order is unconstitutional because it grants preferential treatment to religious organizations while secular groups must still abide by the law. …
  • Trump can alter the Employer Mandate in ObamaCare by Executive Order

    So, just by changing back the definition of what constitutes full time employment, President Trump can essentially eradicate, as in destroy, the employer mandate portion of ObamaCare --and there's not much Congress can do about it. Unlike Republican members of Congress, Trump can use his pen to fundamentally transform ObamaCare. The Affordable Health Care for America Act (ObamaCare) forces businesses to provide health insurance largely via the employer mandate. The Obama regime had the IRS define a full time employee as follows:

    Most progressive groups oppose any expression of religion in the public square, and will likely oppose whatever this president does After President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom last week, the Left used its pre-written script to attack it even though it was dramatically scaled back from the draft that was leaked to left-wing media outlets in February. As if on cue, the Rev. Barry Lynn, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pounced, claiming the executive order “tramples” and “guts” the entire notion of religious freedom.

    President Donald Trump said he’d promote commonsense policies that would “Make America Great Again” and would stand up to politically correct bullying from the left.So why isn’t he doing that in the case of religious freedom?Twice now, he has failed to stand up for commonsense policy on religious liberty when liberal opponents lashed out against it.Back in February, he caved to the protests of liberal special interest groups as he declined to issue an executive order on religious liberty that had been leaked to hostile press.And earlier today, he issued an executive order on “free speech and religious liberty” that...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 5, 2017 | Congressman Paul Gosar
    Over the last 20 years, presidents from both sides of the aisle have used the stroke of a pen to lock up hundreds of millions of acres using the Antiquities Act, but none more egregiously than President Obama. In 2014, then-President Obama said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone. And that’s all I need.” This braggadocious one-liner was the basis for devastating monument designations by the Obama administration. President Trump’s recent Executive Order directs Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke to review national monuments created by the Antiquities Act since 1996 that exceed 100,000 acres and to...

    President Donald Trump today signed an executive order that would allow religious organizations to endorse political candidates and expand participation in politics. The executive order signed today also enables private employers to use religion as a pretext to deny reproductive health care to their employees. “The actions taken today are a broadside to our country’s long-standing commitment to the separation of church and state. Whether by executive order or through backroom deals, it’s clear that the Trump administration and Congressional leadership are using religion as a wedge to further divide the country and permit discrimination. We intend to file suit...

    Life-long Democrat and Republican establishment bureaucrats do not represent nor “serve” the interests of the American people President Trump’s Executive Order on Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America, which was signed on April 25, 2017, is significant in many ways, not the least of which is the Revocation of Executive Order 13575 of June 9, 2011, issued by President Obama, the Establishment of the White House Rural Council.

    Outdoor-clothing maker Patagonia hit back at President Trump on Wednesday, threatening to sue over an executive order calling for the Department of the Interior to review national monuments designated during Bill Clinton's, George W. Bush's and Barack Obama's presidencies. “A president does not have the authority to rescind a National Monument. An attempt to change the boundaries ignores the review process of cultural and historical characteristics and the public input,” Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario said in a statement.

  • Trump To Sign ‘Buy American, Hire American’ Executive Orders (H1B Visas Finally Targeted)

    President Donald Trump will sign an executive order in Wisconsin on Tuesday directing a government-wide review aimed at putting new teeth back into decades-old “Buy American” and “Hire American” directives. The 220-day review process, which could lead to additional executive orders and possibly legislation, will focus on preventing foreign workers with H-1B visas from, as one senior administration official put it, “undercutting American labor at less cost,” which the official labeled as “an abuse” of the current system. “This is a clear statement from the president of the United States to shore up some of these abuses,” the official continued....

    Mandatory quarantines without input from your local health department are on the way, thanks to a last minute Executive Order passed by outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama. In fact, Obama gave the Centers for Disease Control permission to detain anyone with even such symptoms as "headaches, cramps or fevers!" AIDS was NOT on the list of communicable diseases which carry such strict federal quarantine stipulations. In fact, finding the list of nine diseases that permit heavy handed, federal health authorities "to apprehend, isolate, and quarantine" on the CDC website is difficult. However, in another location appears the list of diseases...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump will roll out a new executive order on Tuesday that eliminates several Obama-era climate change orders in favor of policies centered on energy independence. A senior administration official said that the coming EO will review some and take other Obama executive orders “off the books immediately to the extent we can,” while also looking forward to providing a “beginning framework for a strategy on energy.” Under the new order, each executive department and agency in the U.S. government will be responsible for identifying impediments to energy production. Energy policy under the order will stay...

    "The Government's reply brief in John Doe v. Trump - before Judge William Conley in the Western District of Wisconsin - was filed late last night just minutes before the deadline. Incredibly, in an act of sheer deep state sabotage, it does not cite to, rely upon, or draw the attention of the Court to, the very statute that specifically bars asylum seekers and asylees from suing the US Government or its officers. That statute is 8 U.S.C. 1158(d)7. This section of US Code has been cited in multiple federal cases regarding asylum issues. It is beyond question the most...
