Trump's Battle With 'Obamacare' Moves To The Courts

Welch: Trump health care turnaround blindsided GOP

"Accordingly, these provisions are unlawful and must be set aside", Bates said in the ruling.

A problem for Trump is that the litigation could take months to resolve - or longer - and there's no guarantee he'll get the outcomes he wants before the 2020 election.

Another Republican senator interviewed anonymously for the Bolton/Sullivan piece admitted that Trump's anti-ACA strategy is "not a good one for us". So this President's decision blind-sided some within the Republican Party.

It's early innings in the court cases, and "the clock is going to run out", said Timothy Jost, a retired law professor who has followed the Obama health law since its inception.

President Donald Trump holds a campaign rally at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Thursday, March 28, 2019. Democrats have slammed the administration for "sabotaging" the health care law through regulations that promote "junk" insurance, and short-term plans have drawn more of their ire than the association plans.

In the Texas case, Trump could lose by winning.

Bates, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, called the final rule an "end-run" around the health care law. "It seems to me that you can resolve this issue more narrowly than by striking down the ACA". "But we're doing something right now that will be much less expensive than Obamacare for the people".

Graham said that the Republican plan should "reaffirm and ensure that preexisting conditions are covered so that no American can be denied health care coverage", "reallocate the funds now spent on Obamacare fairly among the states", and "empower the states to chart their own course in providing high-quality health care". On Monday, the Justice Department said in a letter to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that the entire ACA should be invalidated. According to a report in Axios, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., the minority leader in the House, told Trump over the phone that his renewed fight against the Affordable Care Act "made no sense" in light of the fact that Democrats successfully fended off multiple GOP attempts to repeal the law in 2017. On Wednesday another federal judge blocked Medicaid work requirements for low-income people. Bureau officials did not immediately know what the impact of Bates' ruling would be on their plan, said Rob Robertson, the bureau's chief administrator.
