(RightWing.org) – President Trump took American health care a big step forward on Thursday, September 24, as he issued an executive order outlining plans for his “America First” health care policy. The new plan focuses on important issues that Obamacare overlooked and aims to make medical treatment more transparent and affordable for ordinary Americans.
The centerpiece of the president’s plan is to make it official US policy to protect people with pre-existing medical conditions. While this statement isn’t legally binding it puts pressure on insurers to do more to protect the sick. Another key item is an instruction to Congress to pass legislation banning surprise medical bills by the beginning of 2021.

Predictably, Democrats scrambled to criticize the president, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) calling it a “bogus order” and trying to resurrect Obamacare. President Trump is determined to do a better job, though, despite Pelosi’s pessimism.
