A White House study says that reforms to Obamacare instituted by President Trump will save 450 billion dollars over the next ten years, or nearly 20 complete border walls. Using an Executive Order, President Trump changed a few things in the Obamacare plan, such as doing away with the individual mandate, 80% of which was paid by the middle class and allowing people to buy the expansion of short-term insurance plans and Association Health Plans (AHPs). AHPs usually cost half of what Obamacare costs and 5 million people are expected to buy into it. Another 5 million save money by not having to pay the individual mandate.
Many Americans have contended that because 80 percent of those who paid the Obamacare mandate made less than $50,000 a year, the individual mandate repeal serves as a significant middle-class tax break.
The CEA said about 87 percent of Obamacare exchange enrollees receive ACA subsidies and “only pay a fraction of their health insurance costs.”
Many Obamacare proponents suggested that the repeal of the individual mandate, as well as the expansion of short-term plans and AHPs, would lead to higher premiums on the Obamacare exchanges.
In contrast, the CEA contended that because more people will use AHPs and short-term plans and fewer people will use the ACA exchanges, the government will save $185 billion over the next ten years.
The CEA said that instead of sabotaging the ACA, the Trump administration offered millions of Americans more affordable health insurance options.
“The oft-expressed view that deregulation ‘sabotages the ACA’ by giving consumers more insurance-coverage options is misguided,” the CEA said.
