A top business group in Texas greeted President Donald Trump's executive order aimed at reshaping USA health care policy with a lukewarm statement on Thursday, while local health care advocates raised concerns that the attacks on the Affordable Care Act would dissuade people from signing up for medical insurance for 2018.

The government payments to insurers for these vital subsidies, which are used to offset medical costs by lower and middle income families, were seen by the Trump administration and many Republicans as unlawful. In a statement, the White House said that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice, has concluded that the so-called cost-sharing reduction payments.

"The American people deserve better".

Schneiderman's office addressed the move in a statement yesterday.

"Having failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act in Congress, President Trump is determined to singlehandedly rip apart our health care system".
