A federal judge has ruled that a Trump administration measure expanding association health insurance plans allowed participants to illegally escape certain Affordable Care Act regulations.

"Accordingly, these provisions are unlawful and must be set aside", Bates said in the ruling.

Trump made the surprise decision to talk up health legislation last week immediately after the release of a summary of Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, and is encouraging his party to make it a signature issue going into the 2020 elections.

The President, they said, wants to telegraph to his political base that he is standing firm on his promise to repeal the entire law despite failing to wrangle Republicans to do just that during a drawn out legislative battle in 2017, when the party held both chambers of Congress. "But this is the beginning of a series of judicial challenges".

"Trump has an idea on health care".
