Executive order mandating lifestyle behavior

No person requesting for information shall be denied access unless the information sought "falls under any of the exception enshrined in the constitution existing law or jurisprudence," the EO stated.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) must provide a list of exceptions to be submitted to the Office of the President within 30 calendar days from the effectivity of the EO.

"It's a sign that the Trump administration is looking to unwind the law in every way it can administratively," said Larry Levitt of the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan clearinghouse for information and analysis about the health care system.

One distinct possibility is for the government to find new ways to grant exemptions from the law's requirement that people who remain uninsured pay fines, if deemed able to afford coverage. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Saturday that the order indeed “appears to target the individual mandate.” The California Democrat, a staunch supporter of the law, warned: “When President Trump threatens the individual mandate, he threatens the affordable health coverage of the millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.” It may take weeks or months to discern the full impact of Trump's directive.

The competitive forces that managers face today and will continue to confront in the future demand organizational excellence.
