The Trump administration wants to eliminate mandatory coverage for pre-existing conditions

The most popular feature of Obamacare may be requiring insurance companies to offer coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.  I’m sure we all have pre-existing conditions or a family member or friend who does.  Now the Trump administration wants to eliminate that requirement. They claim it’s unconstitutional.

Here’s a poll that shows how popular it is, even among Republicans:

The Trump administration stresses abstinence as birth control

From this article: “The Trump administration has published its new plan for fighting teen pregnancy and its message to teens is clear: don’t have sex.

 Anyone who wants federal government money to fight teen pregnancy must choose from two approaches that includes preventing teens from having sex, or persuading them to stop.”

There is no evidence this approach works.


The Trump administration ended a teen pregnancy prevention program

“The Trump administration’s abrupt cancellation of a federal program to prevent teen pregnancy last year was directed by political appointees over the objections of career experts in the Department of Health and Human Services…” according to this article.

The program had bipartisan congressional support and helped reduce the teen pregnancy rate to an all time low.

Just another bad decision by the Trump administration.  Sad!
