Donald Trump Announces Health Care Expansion Without Socialism - Breitbart
President Donald Trump announced plans Friday to expand health care for small business and workers through health reimbursement arrangements (HRA).
Trump said that the expansions of HRAs would allow families to start shopping around for health care plans that they wanted and to get reimbursed by their employers.
“It’s popular, it’s really, really been a success,” Trump said, noting that the Obama administration leveled penalties for HRAs, making it essentially unworkable.
The president held an announcement ceremony in the Rose Garden.
Trump said the decision would help expand the level of coverage, particularly for small businesses, calling it a “monumental” achievement.
The president brought to the podium small business owners, who explained that the new rules would help them considerably. One businessman noted that after the Obama administration hurt the HRA option, he lost employees because they needed better healthcare options.
