Trump told reporters at the White House Wednesday that he is considering signing “a very major” executive order that will “take care of a tremendous number of people with regard to healthcare.”
He said he will “probably” sign the order by next week, allowing people to buy insurance across state lines.
“It's going to cover a lot of territory and a lot of people ‒ millions of people,” the president said, before boarding Marine One for Indiana.
Enabling the purchase of plans across state lines might provide some relief from the insurers’ flight from many state exchanges, leaving millions of Americans stuck between having to buy insurance under Obamacare’s mandate, but having only limited, expensive choices.
The announcement comes the day after Senate Republicans decided to scrap a vote to repeal Obamacare because they did not have enough senators lined up to approve the repeal bill.
