We already know that the republican President Donald Trump was ready to let down his followers with his recent backing of the republican’s repeal and replacement of Obamacare health care bill where 24 million peoples would have lost access to affordable healthcare insurance, and then there is his proposed tax cut plan which heavily favors the wealthy while exploding the deficit. But there are the many other executive orders that he has executed which also harm his hard working backers.
Here is a partial list of the president’s actions which have either harmed hard working folks or children:
Rollback of Mortgage Insurance Premium Savings
As per a 1/20/17 Reuters article by Sarah N. Lynch, “The Trump administration, hours after taking office on Friday, suspended a plan to cut mortgage insurance premiums on federally insured home loans that the U.S. government had estimated would save eligible homeowners an average of $500 a year.”
Rollback of EPA Climate Change Website for the Public
As per a 1/25/17 Reuters report by Valerie Volcovici, “U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the climate change page from its website, two agency employees told Reuters, the latest move by the newly minted leadership to erase ex-President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives.”
“The employees were notified by EPA officials on Tuesday that the administration had instructed EPA’s communications team to remove the website’s climate change page, which contains links to scientific global warming research, as well as detailed data on emissions.” (LAST DAY WAS 4/28/17.)
The Fiduciary Rule
As per a 2/3/17 Forbes article by Jamie Hopkins, “At about 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, February 3, 2017, President Donald Trump signed a memorandum to roll back the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule by asking the DOL to review the rule again and likely to delay its April 10th implementation. y put, the DOL fiduciary rule was designed to make sure that, if you hired a financial advisor to help with your retirement planning and assets, the financial advisor acted in your best interest, avoided conflicts of interest when possible, and was transparent with you about his or her compensation and fees. Many people are surprised to learn that such a rule does not already exist for financial advisors since financial advice, at its core, would appear only to be needed precisely to ensure the best interests of the consumer. ”
The transgender bathroom rule for children
As per the 2/22/17 Washington Post article by Sandhya Somashekhar, Emma Brown and Moriah Balingit, “The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked federal guidelines specifying that transgender students have the right to use public school restrooms that match their gender identity, taking a stand on a contentious issue that has become the central battle over LGBT rights.”
Roll back of Rules Regarding Healthy School lunches.
As per the 5/2/17 Hill report by Lydia Wheeler and Tim Devaney, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue took steps Monday to roll back healthy school lunch standards promoted by former first lady Michelle Obama in one of his first regulatory acts.
In an interim final rule, aimed at giving schools more flexibility, Perdue and his department are postponing new sodium reductions for at least three years and allowing schools to serve non-whole grain rich products occasionally as well as 1 percent flavored milk.
The rule allows states to exempt schools in the 2017-2018 school year from having to replace all their grains with whole-grain rich products if they are having a hard time meeting the standard.
