Obamacare is the law of the land and will be the law of the land…”
–House Speaker Paul Ryan
When the American Health Care Act of 2017 did not even make it to the House floor for a vote Democrats claimed victory and Republicans blamed Republicans. What most politicians and reporters forgot and what those of us in business must remember is that the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act is executed by the Executive Branch.
President Trump signed an Executive Order relaxing restrictions on Obamacare his first day in office. This means that if provisions in the current healthcare law cause a “fiscal burden” (Sec 2) you can request an exception.
