Did Donald Trump just end Obamacare?

By executive order, President Trump has effectively eliminated the mandate and opened the door to cheaper, catastrophic insurance coverage. What Morris is saying is that even if Congress does nothing, Obamacare has already been gutted. All that remain are the subsidies.

How to use Newt Gingrich in the Trump administration

The motto of HHS is “improving the health, safety, and well-being of America.” To that aim, President Obama and former Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sibelius, believed the best way to do that is to treat human life as a disease and trample on our religious liberty with their HHS mandate on religious institutions, a path the current secretary continues on.

HHS is a sprawling bureaucracy with 67,000 employees and a $700 billion budget.

What would be Mr. Gingrich’s vision for HHS if he became its Secretary? We can get a clue from his book, A Nation Like No Other, Why American Exceptionalism Matters:

The Gingrich Solution

Newt Gingrich is a conservative visionary.

Democrats controlled the House of Representatives for 40 consecutive years. Mr. Gingrich came up with a campaign idea called the Contract with America which would empower voters.

Voters liked it and put Republicans in control of the House for a dozen years beginning in 1994.

Gingrich and his fellow Republicans produced remarkable results by reducing government spending and balancing the budget. As you can see in the chart above, federal spending as a percentage of GDP began to plummet when Gingrich became speaker. It began to climb again when he resigned from the Speakership in 1998.
