Court blocks another Trump attempt to undermine Obamacare

A federal district court judge Thursday blocked another Trump administration effort to undermine Obamacare.

The decision hits a Labor Department rule designed to make it easier for small businesses to band together and buy health insurance in so-called association health plans — one of the Trump administration’s initiatives to weaken Obamacare by offering alternatives to the exchanges.

The order, Trump said at the time, would give “millions of Americans with Obamacare relief.”
