The president has been working with Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., for months to develop this executive order. In an op-ed for Breitbart News, Sen. Paul outlined several details of the plan.
How will it work?
The Obamcare "cost sharing subsidies" is as FAKE as the entire "Affordable" Care Act itself. And ALL of DC knows it!
I give President Trump high marks for his Ex-O that kills it. But, it is just that - an Ex-O. Which can be undone by the next potus; or even Trump himself should he decide to backtrack. I wonder how many democrat Ex-Os have been undone by any GOP potus all together?
Since the unanymous and exclusive passage of the totally disastrous ACA bill I had pointed out that the sure way to kill the ACA was/is to stop it at its lifeblood: the MONEY!
The ACA is already flatlining because the targetted "forced-consumers" of the ACA...the young millennials...are NOT and have NOT come on board - despite the indiviudal mandate.
Also, the one real reason that insurance carriers got on board in the first place was because of the so called "cost-sharing subsidies". A very pretty term for government BAILOUTS! N different than the QEs the Fed has pumped into Wall Street. Which explains its soaring "21,000" under BOzo altuohgh our GDP had never even reached 3% in the last 9yrs!
AND, since the heart of the ACA relies on the 15,000 pages of regulations filled in by the secy of HHS...only AFTER the "law" was passed...President Trump's Ex-O was the absolute LAWFUL thing to do - as only the HoR has the Constitutional POWER to approriate any monies collected from the TAXPAYERS! I seriously doubt that Kasich, Romney or the DC/GOP poster child Jeb Bush would heve made such a move!
And, w/ that, I can't help but BELIEVE that the GOP majority in the House and Senate would want to pass legislation that would make those insurance BAILOUTS the law-of-the-land.
Have the GOP/DC machine learned anything w/ the results in Alabama? Imo, their every action since Trump's Inauguration...NINE shows otherwise. I call it like I see it.
Abolish It ! That was his word to the American people, no deals, with the UK's Health Care Tax System.
