U.S. judge strikes down rule allowing ‘skimpy’ health insurance plans
Washington Post

A federal judge Thursday struck down a Trump administration rule aimed at enabling millions of Americans to buy skimpy health insurance plans that do not comply with key Affordable Care Act requirements — part of administration efforts to chip away at the health-care law.

Judge John Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia found the rule “is clearly an end-run around the ACA,” commonly called Obamacare, the signature domestic achievement of President Barack Obama.
