    Trump will make contested Obamacare payments in August

    So once again idle threats lead to capitulation.


    July


    “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” Donald Trump



    In apparent frustration over Friday’s failure by the Senate Republican majority to pass a bill repealing parts of the Affordable Care Act, Trump tweeted:
    Trump Threatens To Stop Health Payments Required By Obamacare « CBS San Francisco



    August

    White House: Trump will make contested Obamacare payments in August
    The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday said cutting off the payments would send premiums soaring by 20 percent next year as health companies scramble to make up for the loss of taxpayer money.

    The Trump administration confirmed Wednesday it will make critical Obamacare payments to insurers for August — one day after congressional scorekeepers outlined the long-term risks of cutting off the contested reimbursements.
    Tough talk is great TV...but it doesn't make good policy.

    I thought Obamacare would pay for itself.

    Why do they need bailouts?

    Did the democrats lie about that?

    Why would Trump give bailouts? I thought he was going to get rid of Obamacare on day one?

    What happened?

    Odd, President Trump makes the payment and the bed wetting liberals are unhappy. If President Trump doesn't make the payments they are unhappy. There really is no pleasing a certain group of people in this country.

    Millions were getting ready to lose their coverage if those subsidies were not paid, and that would have been fine with you, the less insured, the more healthcare is available for you....

    You are totally clueless. The ACA taxes pay for the subsidies, Trump has been collecting the taxes and not paying the subsidies. Why does everything have to simplified to a 3rd grade level for you to understand, and then you forget it the very next day and ask the same stupid ass questions again and again, it is like you have a learning disability.

    Someone told Spooky that we could make Mexico pay for it.

    Okay, but the question remains... Are you happy that President Trump made the payments? Did President Trump do something that you agree with? Are you afraid to admit that you like what he did on this?
