The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was one of the biggest disasters of Barack Obama’s Presidency, yet probably his most cherished part of his legacy. President Trump was elected into office, partially because he vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare…that of which was echoed from Republicans across the board for years, yet they have failed miserably to keep their word.
As a result, President Trump has been forced to do no other than everything in his power to roll back and eliminate all he can from Barack Obama’s disastrous legislation that plagues millions of Americans. And today, Trump did just that…
According to National Review:
Today, President Donald Trump announced reforms that would broaden exemptions to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. It will expand protections of small and closely held businesses to publicly traded companies and other employers as well as extending protections not only to those with religious objections but to those with moral objections that are not specifically religious in nature.
This is a huge blow to Barack Obama’s initial controversial contraception mandate that had been active since his Affordable Care Act went into effect. The mandate was clearly an assault on religious liberty. Now business owners have the freedom to practice what their beliefs entail. There was also large question that the mandate was illegal cause of the fact that it invades on one’s private conscience in regards to when and if it’s ok to fund the removal of an embryo.
National Review claims this is the second time the rule has been revised. The first revision came after the Supreme Court found that the mandate as constructed by the Obama administration violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, which requires that the federal government use the least invasive and most narrowly focused means available when burdening Americans’ religious exercise.
Well how about that to close out the week! This is great news for Christians in America who were appalled at Barack Obama’s sponsored legislation. They feel it was virtually an attack their own beliefs along with millions of other Americans. Barack Obama’s legacy is dissipating right before our eyes.
