Except he provided an exemption for public safety, which would get certain doctors included.
I think part of the reason why agencies will take some time drafting their guidance is because they will try to include as many exemptions as possible.
However, I too agree this freeze doesn't help anyone. He got what he wanted, which was to say he's doing this for the taxpayers (ironic since all of us are taxpayers too), so he could lift it quietly in time to come.
Okay, I'm really gonna get out of here now.
