"Already chuck schumer the senate minority leader as issued a statement following the signing of the executive order today by president trump and he held it up to the press cameras with a huge smile on his face a very selfsatisfied smile a but that's very much in contrast to the criticism coming from senator schumer's saying quote having failed to repeal the lower in congress the president of this sabotaging the system using a wrecking ball to singlehandedly rip apart how healthcare system if the system deteriorates make no mistake about it the blame will fall squarely on the president's back so do you think that will be the outcome of oil a president obama say well it's failing in its sinn any logistic celebrate the fact that he's been making a case it's been failing bit tom price who is just five is ahead of hhs he was also sabotaging the aci as much as he could from the inside through administrative tricks so who's gonna wind up then we'll let's start with this question what do you think is the fate of the aca is again to survive this well i mean president trump has made it clear they warned that he were going here tried to blow up how fun current market for may and how quickly that won't occur but the policies that are being posed under the executive order endo larger effort to sabotage the ata for example by not marketing and doing it met outreach hillary who need to buy health insurance on their own that's already having an impact on incurred on on the premiums that people are going to have to pay and could well have an impact on enrollment going forward so the thick outcome of the policy that were put forward an executive order today remain in the pera later ministry trying to attack a la in an as many ways they can well it would seem that that uh tom price of course he got fired for use of expensive private jets but it seemed like when he was at the head of hhs cease his job was to do as much as he could to sabotage it from the inside the because he cut.
