Back in 2009, when Obamacare was forced upon American, Republicans in Congress were furious for having a law pushed through that not a single one of them could support. They began making lofty promises, that they’d do everything in their power to repeal the terrible law and replace it with their own vision for healthcare.
What followed was an incredible series of elections that saw the rise of the Tea Party and the retaking of Congress by Republicans. However, the repeal they promised never came. Even now, with control of the presidency, Republicans, who campaigned on repeal for years, failed miserably to end Obamacare. In light of the cowardice and the refusal of the GOP to do anything, Trump is now moving on his own to end Obamacare.
As reported at the New York Post, President Trump announced Thursday night that he will halt all subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare, a change that will effectively neuter the healthcare law altogether.
“Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement.
Senile House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and the lying Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer trashed the decision as a “spiteful act of vast, pointless sabotage” in a statement Thursday night. That’s rich coming from them, considering they passed the massive law without first reading it. And also because they were fully aware the damage Obamacare would do, as they viewed it as a necessary step to the single-payer the Left craves.
Obamacare for them would cause rates to go up like they have, giving them an excuse to “do more” down the line, which would be to “save the day” with another, more extreme law that would place healthcare under complete government control. So they’re the ones who intentionally sabotaged the healthcare system, because they planned an even more socialist takeover after they broke the system.
Trump signed the executive early on Thursday saying it was a step toward “saving the American people from the nightmare of Obamacare.”
This is a move that should have occurred years ago. However, thanks to the cowardice of the GOP, the American people have had to watch their premiums skyrocket as the law has slowly taken effect. They forced Trump’s hand on this after their embarrassing failure to repeal the law this summer. Maybe now, after this kick in the rear, they’ll finally be inspired to do their jobs.
