Bob Atlas, a Strategic Advisor and President of EBG Advisors, Inc., in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in on National Public Radio (NPR), in “President Trump Might Withhold ACA Subsidy Payments,” by Andy Uhler.

Following is an excerpt:

Under current law, the federal government repays some money to insurance companies for covering people with very low income. President Trump said he was still considering what to do about those payments. Bob Atlas, president of healthcare consultancy EBG Advisors, said legally speaking, Trump can do that.

“It’s very legal,” he said. “The question is whether it’s moral to hold these people’s payments hostage.”
