Judge Napolitano: President Trump’s order limiting Obamacare ‘revolutionary’
Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano says President Donald Trump’s executive order immediately ebbing the flow of the negative effects of Obamacare is “revolutionary” and in a single stroke of his pen dismantled the “centerpiece” of President Barack Obama’s administration.
[President Donald Trump] ordered a truly revolutionary act, the likes of which I have never seen in the 45 years I have studied and monitored the government’s laws and its administration of them. He ordered that when bureaucrats who are administering and enforcing the law have discretion with respect to the time, place, manner and severity of its enforcement, they should exercise that discretion in favor of individuals and against the government.
This is radical coming from any president in the modern era of government-can-do-no-wrong. It is far more Thomas Jefferson, the small-government champion with whom Trump has never been associated, than it is Theodore Roosevelt, the super-regulator whom Trump has stated he admires. It recognizes the primacy and dignity of the individual and the fallibility of the state. It acknowledges the likely demise of ObamaCare. It is utterly without precedent since Jefferson’s presidency.
Obamacare never should have been rolled out to begin with and is a total disaster. It’s encroached on medical professionals, it has hurt small businessmen and women and it has hurt American families trying to make ends meet, to name a few!

Watch Judge Napolitano explain why this executive action is within the president’s purview and how President Trump — in signing such an executive order — is releasing a “breeze of freedom on a sea of regulation.”
