Pen and a Phone Part 2: The Vengeance -- Trump Preparing Executive Order to Permit Americans To Purchase Health Insurance Across State Lines

I don't know much, so this is just totally out-of-my-ass, but I kinda doubt the buying-across-state-lines thing is going to matter much. I think out-of-state providers will still have to cost-in all the burdens the state they're selling in impose on insurance, etc.

Still, this would be something. A band-aid won't seal a gaping wound, but if all you have is a band-aid, well, try the band-aid at least.

Is this constitutional? Well, if Obamacare has taught us anything, it's that it's endlessly mutable according to the whim of the president -- and the Supreme Court has blessed this regime of unconstitutional reinterpretations-by-decree at least twice.

And with more and more people having no health coverage even offered in their location, and with prices going through the roof, and with the useless GOPe not wanting to do anything but pour further taxpayer moneys into insurance company coffers, someone has to try something.

President Trump is preparing an executive order to allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines, a reform conservatives have long championed as a way to bring costs down and stir greater competition in the national marketplace.... "I think there's going to be big news from the White House in the next week or two, something they can do on their own," pSenator Rand] Paul told MSNBC, adding that Trump "can legalize on his own the ability of individuals to join a group or a health association across state lines and buy insurance."

A Senate GOP source told the Washington Examiner the executive action is considered "a done deal" and likely to be announced "in the next few weeks."
