President Donald Trump overruled some objections within his administration to back a federal ruling which would end the Obamacare system.
From Daily Caller:
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar and Attorney General Bill Barr opposed the administration’s public support of a federal judge’s ruling, noting that full administration support for the end of Obamacare would be difficult because no alternative health care framework remains in place.
Trump dismissed the concerns with support from acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought, these sources told the Caller. The distance between Azar and the White House was first reported by Politico and denied in a statement by HHS.
“The Department of Justice has determined that the district court’s judgment should be affirmed,” the Department of Justice wrote Monday on Trump’s direction, adding that the government “is not urging that any portion of the district court’s judgment be reversed.”
