President Donald Trump will likely announce some “big news” soon about action the White House can take concerning healthcare reform now that the latest plan coming before the Senate isn’t coming to a vote this week, Sen. Rand Paul said Wednesday.
“I believe President Trump can legalize, on his own, the ability of individuals to join a group or health association across state lines to buy insurance,” the Kentucky Republican told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”program, noting that the plan is one he himself has advocated for some time.
By allowing such purchases, it would bring “enormous leverage” to bringing down prices, while protecting individuals who “feel left out, hung out to dry.”
People who purchase insurance individually are punished by the insurance industry if a family member gets sick, Paul said, but when people join in large groups, they get protection and lower prices.
