Ah yes, leadership. In this case demonstrated by our president in his announcement......

Shit. He did not announce it. Instead, it was announced late on Thursday night, long after most were in bed. Guess he lacked the testicles to do it.

Anyway, Trump is apparently trying to end the ACA subsidies which render insurance affordable to folks. Why? Only one thing i can think of.

He is a dick-moron hybrid.

The only way this makes sense is if one is such a dick-moron hybrid they think this fulfills some campaign promise made to stupid people, the promise to repeal the ACA on the first day in office.

President Donald Trump plans to end a key set of Obamacare subsidies that helped lower-income enrollees pay for health care, the White House said Thursday, a dramatic move that raises questions about the law's future.

The late-night announcement is part of Trump's aggressive push to dismantle aspects of his predecessor's signature health law after several failed attempts by Congress to repeal it earlier this year.
It also puts the spotlight back on Congress, where lawmakers in both parties have urged the administration to continue the payments to stabilize the Obamacare markets in the short term.

What is so typical of him is that this morning he tweeted:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 12h12 hours ago

The time has come to take action to IMPROVE access, INCREASE choices, and LOWER COSTS for HEALTHCARE!
Note the "LOWER COSTS", all in caps to show how important it is to him. Or was then.

The XO shifts the burden of coverage back to businesses who can now offer tailored insurance plans with limited and affordable forms of insurance. The government can still extend medicare to more and more of the poor IF it can find a way to pay for it. This is a logical move that makes economic sense. It does undermine the unlimited compassion at any cost philosophy that the left prefers, but has not figured out how to make it work.

It does require people to GET A JOB and help to pull the wagon.

Here's hoping that our Democratic friends will replace hate for truth...

If you subsidise something, you lower the cost to the person buying it. Which is the point of the subsidy. This executive order might well lower the cost to you, but it increases the cost to others. Not that that apparently matters to you, as long as your personal cost is less.

It is, and now Trump is showing the folly of Dems plan to have the executive branch make the Obamacare rules as they go along.
Every legislation and program has regulatory guide lines. Most however are not written to hurt the program. That is the difference between Donald Trump and every other real President.
