The old saying, “what goes around comes around” has suddenly bit the Democrats and their cohorts in the butt. Democrat governors and their attorney generals have gone to court over Trump’s executive order halting subsidies to insurance companies; these subsidies lower the premium cost to those who purchase health insurance through exchanges. The subsidies are illegal; the courts have ruled on that. No appropriation by congress to allow the government legally to make these payments exists. But this didn’t matter to Obama who violated the law. About 6 million Americans benefit from the subsidies.
Trump weighed in six months ago, “I’ve been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode,” Trump said. “It is exploding right now.”
Experts said the ACA wasn’t “exploding,” but that it needed fixes to help incentivize insurers to stay in marketplaces.
But now, six months later, Obamacare may actually be on the road to “exploding” – catalyzed by an accelerant poured over it by President Trump.
This decision has fired up the mouths of Pelosi and Up-Chuck Schumer who are fiercely blowing smoke into the wind and some other place. It was OK for Obama to issue numerous executive orders when he felt necessary; the executive order was Obama’s prime legislative weapon. If congress didn’t pass the law, he “the anointed one” would get it done; for instance the dreamers putsch. So he went E.O.
Now the shoe is on the other foot. The Democrats think they have a winning hand; yeah right – didn’t they think that on November 8, 2016? Please bring in the clowns.
The White House argued the subsidies are illegal, because they are not appropriated by Congress. House Republicans sued the Obama administration hoping to stop the payments. As noted above the court ruled the payments to be illegal.
That’s not all the Trump administration has done that could pull the rug out from under the ACA — it has also shortened the sign-up period for health care; closed the federal exchange on Sundays; and cut the budget for marketing efforts, including ending advertising to urge sign ups.
Don’t be fooled by biased opinions and sleazy editorials, Trump has the winning hand, even if the Republicans balk and the Democrats look to the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip. The bottom line is this, the Democrats won’t negotiate – their feeble effort to blame Trump and the Republicans will go nowhere but up in ashes like the hundreds of homes in Santa Rosa.
If the government shuts down won’t have the slightest effect on most Americans, in fact this will be a good thing. They realize that a bloated government is not too big to fail. GO TRUMP
