The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Friday proposed a rule that would roll back protections for transgender patients under Obamacare, the second rule this month the agency has put forward to allow health care providers to deny services to them.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democrats on Tuesday embraced U.S. President Donald Trump’s call to revive a fight over healthcare coverage, ensuring the issue will dominate the 2020 presidential election and Trump’s bid for a second term in office.
The latest loss came when a federal judge struck down a Trump administration rule aimed at enabling millions of Americans to buy cheap health insurance plans that do not comply with key Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) requirements. The rule was part of Trump’s efforts to chip away at the healthcare law after he could not get Congress to repeal it.

(Reuters) – Top congressional Democrats on Tuesday attacked a legal move by the Trump administration to step up its assault on the Obamacare healthcare law, saying last November’s elections showed Americans want them to protect the Affordable Care Act.
Donald Trump has just accomplished an extremely difficult task. Over the past few days he has made moves that have united the Democratic Party.
Every single Democrat in Congress was outraged that Trump had his hand-picked attorney general write a brief summary of Bob Mueller’s 22 month investigation that allowed the president to claim “complete exoneration.”
William Barr’s latest move as Trump’s attorney general is intended to destroy the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) but also may destroy the GOP.
Last December a federal district court judge issued a ruling saying the Obamacare individual mandate is now unconstitutional because of a provision of the 2017 GOP tax scam law. At the time we reported that the decision could give Democrats control of the Senate in 2020.
A Texas judge’s decision to strike down Obamacare as unconstitutional was, according to Daily Kos, “a lawless act of partisan idiocy.” The ridiculous opinion will undoubtedly be reversed upon appeal. In the meantime the mere prospect of overturning the popular healthcare law, and taking health insurance away from 20 million people, is hurting the Republican Party.
A federal judge in Texas said on Friday that the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) individual coverage mandate is unconstitutional and that the rest of the law therefore is not valid. The ruling was based on law changes made in the 2017 Republican tax bill.
"Healthcare was on the ballot and healthcare won," Pelosi, the House's top Democrat, said of the Tuesday elections that gave her party a controlling majority in the House. "We won because from the beginning we focused on healthcare."
Democratic candidates for the U.S. Congress are closing out the campaign season with an ominous warning: telling voters millions of Americans could lose their health insurance or be forced to pay significantly more if Republicans win.
Rachel Maddow called out Republicans who are pretending to support Obamacare in the midterm election by name and exposed their ACA killing agenda.
Of all of the pressing issues facing the country, Republicans in the U.S. Senate have focused on one issue that is most important to them. They are asking that the new U.S. senator appointed by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey help them by supporting legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as the ACA, or Obamacare.
Ten Senate Republicans who are worried about the blue wave have introduced a scam bill that pretends to restore Obamacare's protections for people with preexisting conditions.
Senate Democrats have announced a plan to force a vote on legislation that would kill Trump's junk insurance plans rule and protect coverage for people with preexisting conditions.
The Trump administration is cutting grants for non-profits that help people get health insurance, and instead directing them to offer people junk health insurance plans.
In an unusual Saturday announcement, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) said it will no longer collect and pay out money under the “risk adjustment” program of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare.
A new poll of voters found that they are opposed to the Trump administration's lawsuit to eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions by a 2 to 1 margin.
