States Counter Trump with PPACA Enrollment Initiatives

First few Article Sentences

“It’s dead. It’s gone. It’s no longer - you shouldn’t even mention (sic). It’s gone” -- President Donald Trump speaking to the current status of the PPACA (Obamacare)

Having failed to repeal and replace the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA), congressional Republicans have moved on to tax reform. However, President Trump is not done with his version of health care reform. He eliminated cost-sharing payments to insurance companies, cut the enrollment period in half and reduced federal enrollment outreach advertising by 90%. Insurance companies have already submitted 2018 rates so these actions were designed to reduce their enrollment and income and, in general, destabilize the PPACA.
