Obamacare repeal is the effort that just won’t die.
Earlier this week, Senator John McCain dashed the latest hopes Senate Republicans had for repealing Obamacre in the form of the Graham-Cassidy bill. This was another dead end in a long list of failures on the part of Republicans. The bill’s authors, senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, promised a revised version of their bill, but it looks like that never came to be.
With McCain’s defection, it really looked like Obamacare repeal was finally over. But you can never count out this president.
Per usual, President Trump has come along to pull the GOP’s bacon out of the fire. Again.
Today, Trump announced that he’ll be reaching out to Democrats on an Obamacare repeal bill. But, more importantly, he announced that he’ll sign a new executive order in the near future, allowing Americans to purchase health insurance across the state lines.
This is welcome news considering the Republican stumbles to repeal Obamacare. By allowing Americans to purchase insurance across state lines, it will introduce much-needed competition to the insurance market. And it may just lead to a renewed interest in finally repealing Obama’s health care takeover.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul hinted at the order this morning on MSNBC:
It will be very interesting to see how this executive order plays out. If it allows Americans to buy insurance across state lines, it will nullify certain state restrictions on insurance. The order will inevitably be challenged in the court system.
