President Obama is getting a run for his money in his last few days as Commander in Chief.
Obamacare takes a big hit as a statute that forced doctors to assist transgender people has been struck down by U.S. District Court Judge Reed O’Connor, Breitbart reports. The statute, which is enforced by those at the Health and Human Services department, also indented to assist those looking to get an abortion.
“Plaintiffs claim the rule’s interpretation of sex discrimination pressures doctors to deliver healthcare in a manner that violates their religious freedom and thwarts their independent medical judgment and will require burdensome changes to their health insurance plans on Jan. 1, 2017,” O’Connor wrote in his ruling.
Not surprisingly, O’Connor is the same judge who shot down the Obama administration’s transgender bathroom policy, which threaten schools across the country, demanding they let students to use bathrooms and locker rooms aligning with their gender identity.
Thankfully, incoming President-Elect Donald Trump had some harsh words for Obamacare:
“One thing we have to do: Repeal and replace the disaster known as Obamacare. It’s destroying our country. It’s destroying our businesses. You take a look at the kind of numbers that that will cost us in the year ’17, it is a disaster. It’s probably going to die of its own weight. But Obamacare has to go. The premiums are going up 60 , 70 , 80 percent. Bad health care at the most expensive price. We have to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Trump said at the third presidential debate.
