If Trump really did pull the Cost Sharing Reduction payments with the sole intent of sending medical stocks tumbling (which they did) and insurance premiums skyrocketing (which they will), then it confirms what the anti-trump crowd has said all along: it's all about Trump 'winning' and nothing to do with helping the common people. Trump seemed to be bragging about Friday's stock plummet and Bannon (of all people) claims that was exactly Trump's motive: win at all cost even if it means sending the economy into a tailspin and killing poor people, the elderly and the sickly.

His aim is to undo everything obama did, whatever the cost.

So much for his promise.
Oh, and i know *obama* promised you could keep your doctor.

What so many forget is that what they are calling "obamacare" is really the plan the republicans passed. The original plan that our former president had was hacked to death.

If you don't know the truth, at least take a "believable" guess.

First, I recall Nancy Pelosi saying that you have to pass it to find out what is in it. So, what things were put in that Obama never wanted in order for the Republicans to pass it (which they didn't)? They didn't need the Republicans in order to pass it since they had super-majorities. Tell us, please, again how it was a Republican passed it - i.e. VOTED for it.

So, whose revisionist history are you reading? The Republicans weren't even allowed into meetings that were held to discuss the Obamacare bill. And if you are so sure there were tweaks, how about telling us what the 'tweaks' were and then why not a single Republican voted for the bill.

What Trump is doing to medical care is inhuman. You will see millions of people not being able to afford the most basics. The insurance companies must be throwing a party with this man in office since he promises to make these greedy bastards even more wealthy.

Then the republicans must have been pleased with themselves, helping big insurance. Like I said, what everyone calls obamacare is really a plan that had to satisfy his opposition to get passed.

Most politicians (R & D) "play" with the big corporations. They take their campaign donations, listen to their lobbyists, and often walk into cushy positions with them after leaving office. Many seem to do quite well in the big casino on Wall Street while in office, too (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

We've been right all along about Trump. He's seeking revenge for what Obama said to him at a party. So he's going to undo everything that Obama put together no matter what happens to people or to our country.

Exactly correct!
No one, not even Obama is authorized to spend without Congressional approval. All Trump did is reverse Obama's (one of Obama's) unconstitutional proclamation.
