From the day he was inaugurated through today, President Trump has had it in for the Affordable Care Act.
After months of trying to repeal and replace Obamacare, Congress has moved on to other issues. But there are still things the administration can do -- and is doing -- to undermine the health insurance markets.
Indeed, Trump has said multiple times he wants to “let Obamacare explode.”
There are three ways his administration is helping things along, and three ways California is trying to counteract the federal moves (see video).
On Tuesday, the Congressional Budget Office released a report showing how one of the administration's strategies would impact consumers and taxpayers: a 20 percent rise in premium costs and a $194 billion increase in the federal deficit over the next decade.
