This is huge news. If he is able to do this, this will destroy the walled gardens each state has around health insurance and will likely result in a massive decrease in premiums.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he will return to the healthcare legislative effort early next year and negotiate with Democrats on the issue, a day after the failure of Republicans’ latest attempt to get a healthcare plan through the Senate.

The Republican president, refusing to admit defeat on one of his primary promises during the 2016 presidential campaign, told reporters at the White House that Republicans will tackle healthcare again in January or February.

“I will negotiate with Democrats but from the Republican standpoint, we have the votes,” Trump said. He added that he would probably sign an executive order next week to allow people to buy health insurance across state lines.

He’s going to negotiate with Democrats, although we can’t really be sure what is going to come from a deal like that, considering that they want to keep 100% of Obamacare.
