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.

Since not one Republican Senator voted for 'Obamacare,' please explain how it 'is really the plan the republicans passed.'

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.

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.

Let me guess... you aren't paying for your own healhcare, are you?

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.

And here's hoping, it kicks "his base", right in their ass.

Has nothing to do with my reply.

The ones who stand idiotically behind him during one of his rallies. Unless of course, they are paid actors, and I wouldn't put that past him either.
