Affordable Care Act

President Trump signed an executive order last week that would give federal agencies the ability to change, delay or waive provisions of the ACA if they deemed those provisions to be overly costly to insurers, doctors, drug makers, patients or states. That is about as far as the President can go without having the ACA repealed by Congress, which has not happened yet, but is expected to be done shortly.  

Swipe fees 

There continues to be a push in Congress to repeal the 2010 Dodd-Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which limited the ability for institutions to charge unreasonable debit card swipe fees on transactions. Because of Dodd-Frank, debit fees are nearly half of what they used to be. Contact your legislators to urge them NOT to repeal Dodd-Frank.
