    It is a travesty of the highest degree how the media has not reported all the good this president has done.

    If we had a decent and honest media, the Left would be out of business in no time. They’d be shunned and rejected.

    So it’s obvious then that the media has no concern whatsoever about the public other than their ratings and profits. Surely not about the people as they soooo often claim they are there to keep us informed!!!!


    In June, the Trump administration instituted new rules that would allow small businesses and individuals to access health insurance through what the president called “ association health plans.” This would permit certain businesses and the self-employed to band together, even across state lines, to provide coverage for members outside of Obamacare’s strict rules.

    It turns out association health plans have quickly become a solution to many Americans’ coverage problems, are more affordable than Obamacare, and are helping many get the care they need.

    “It's time to acknowledge that critics may have misjudged one of the Trump administration's signature health-care policies – ‘bigly,’” writes Washington Post Assistant Editor and Opinions Contributor Robert Gebelhoff.

    “New reports suggest that much of that fear might be overblown — at least for the time being,” he continued. “As The Washington Post's health policy guru Paige Winfield Cunningham laid out this week, more than two dozen association health plans have been developed since the administration issued its new rule, and so far they don't look nearly as skimpy as experts predicted.”

    “When it comes to these new association health plans, they appear — at least so far — to offer benefits comparable to most workplace plans and haven't tried to discriminate against patients with preexisting conditions,” she continued.

    “The farm cooperative Land O’Lakes, which is expanding its association plan to farmers in Nebraska and Minnesota, has said its premiums will cost 25 percent to 35 percent less than plans sold on Nebraska’s ACA marketplace,” Cunningham noted.

    Covering pre-existing conditions and natal care and other such benefits have to be covered because of the affordable care act.

    Insurance companies have to pay at least 80% of the money they have taken on the patients because of the affordable care act.

    But once that’s gone, so goes those protections.
    If they’re offering comparable benefits, it’s because they have to by LAW!. Duh!. Fuking duh! Triple fuking duh!. How can you not know that?
