Dear President Trump:
Since the congress, senate, and government employees have their own insurance – separate from the peons – why is it they can’t add another cage and put us peons in it since it is established and we know the insurance company wouldn’t mind more customers – and then you could dump the Obamacare into the sewer where it belongs. After further thought include McCain, Collins, and Murkowski in that dump.
The senate always try to make things difficult to make us peons think they are earning their pay.
From what I have read, if you don’t pay your bill for insurance – they will cut you off – good idea Mr. President.
Trump threatens to end Obamacare payments unless repeal passes
1 / 17
President Trump on Saturday threatened to end key payments to insurance companies made under Obamacare if a repeal and replace bill is not passed.
“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” he added.
Trump has previously threatened to withhold the payments, known as Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR) payments, which lower the amount individuals have to pay for deductibles, copayments and insurance.
The White House announced earlier this month that key Obamacare subsidies to insurers would be paid this month; however, the administration did not make a commitment beyond July.
Trump’s comments come after Senate Republican efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare failed early Friday. Three Republicans and all 48 Democrats rejected pared-down repeal legislation, known as a “skinny” bill.
The issue is of critical importance to Republicans in all three branches of government because the party campaigned for seven years to repeal former President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.
