Why couldn't he have tweeted about increasing competition in the insurance industry?!

Allowing people to buy insurance across state lines is a huge step in the right direction.

I agree; and allowing purchases across state lines has been a part of every health care proposal since the Truman administration, but has never happened. Here's a good look at the pros and cons: http://www.factcheck.org/2017/07/sellin ... ate-lines/

BUT more importantly, Trump's Executive Order only ordered studies to be done in the next few months - it didn't change anything.

Here's everything Trump actually ordered in his Executive Order (emphasis mine):
——
WITHIN 60 DAYS of the date of this order, the Secretary of Labor shall CONSIDER PROPOSING regulations or revising guidance, consistent with law, to expand access to health coverage by allowing more employers to form AHPs.

WITHIN 60 DAYS of the date of this order, the Secretaries of the Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services shall CONSIDER PROPOSING regulations or revising guidance, consistent with law, to expand the availability of STLDI. To the extent permitted by law and supported by sound policy, the Secretaries SHOULD CONSIDER allowing such insurance to cover longer periods and be renewed by the consumer.

WITHIN 120 DAYS of the date of this order, the Secretaries of the Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services SHALL CONSIDER proposing regulations or revising guidance, to the extent permitted by law and supported by sound policy, to increase the usability of HRAs, to expand employers' ability to offer HRAs to their employees, and to allow HRAs to be used in conjunction with nongroup coverage.
