The Trump Tweets:
"Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making." says Sharyl Attkisson. A total lack of........accountability say the Governor. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. Congress to decide how much to spend......We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!
The Fake News Is going all out in order to demean and denigrate! Such hatred!
The time has come to take action to IMPROVE access, INCREASE choices, and LOWER COSTS for HEALTHCARE!

Signed the executive order: PROMOTING HEALTHCARE CHOICE AND COMPETITION ACROSS THE UNITED STATES - It shall be the policy of the executive branch, to the extent consistent with law, to facilitate the purchase of insurance across State lines and the development and operation of a healthcare system that provides high-quality care at affordable prices for the American people. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), however, has severely limited the choice of healthcare options available to many Americans and has produced large premium increases in many State individual markets for health insurance. The average exchange premium in the 39 States that are using www.healthcare.gov in 2017 is more than double the average overall individual market premium recorded in 2013. The PPACA has also largely failed to provide meaningful choice or competition between insurers, resulting in one-third of America's counties having only one insurer offering coverage on their applicable government-run exchange in 2017.
Signed the executive memo: Delegation of Certain Functions and Authorities under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017: This delegates regular enforcement of existing US sanctions to the State Dept.
HHS issued a statement citing that they'd end subsidy payments to insurance companies for ACA policies
