A separate Trump administration rule expanding the duration of another type of health plan that bypasses the law's requirements, short-term insurance plans, also faces a lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the D.C. Circuit.

Surprised and feeling his oats by the "no collusion" verdict from a Mueller report that only Trump's recently appointed attorney general has read, the president wants to celebrate by burning the Affordable Care Act in a trash fire ritual, leaving millions of Americans without health care insurance.
