Donald Trump just put ink-to-paper in beginning to fulfil one of his signature campaign promises: to repeal Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
According to the executive order, all government agencies shall take steps to "ease the burdens of Obamacare" while the new administration and Congress pledge to work together to replace the ACA with something else.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also told reporters Friday (January 20) that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus sent a memo to all government agencies calling for a freeze on regulations.
While those on the right and staunch supporters of the new president rejoice, because people possibly losing their health care must be a good thing in their eyes, others are outraged. Some of those may even be having buyer’s remorse.
Twitter gave their thoughts. “Trump signed a executive order to help repel ObamaCare and his supporters are starting to regret voting for him,” a user wrote. “I hope trump cut obamacare just so his supporters that benefit can realize that this actually helped them. I hope that you regret voting him,” someone else tweeted.
