15 states sue over Trump-halted ObamaCare payments
Rachel Roubein / The Hill

A new multistate lawsuit has been announced to stop President Trump from halting key ObamaCare payments to insurers.  —  Fifteen states and Washington, D.C., are signing onto the new lawsuit, which will be filed Friday …

The rich man has aimed his revenge directly at the poor, in order to “get” Obama. Flustered and flummoxed, ultimately, by the People’s representatives, he decides to unilaterally scuttle as much of Obamacare as possible by going after the insurance businesses.

By cutting the subsidies that “make up” the portion of the premiums that the poor don’t pay (not the poorest, who, long since, were denied Medicaid coverage by Republicans in twenty-plus states) just as open enrollment is set to begin, he hopes to force insurance companies OUT of the market.

Thus sabotaging Obamacare, the Law of the Land™, in direct defiance to his solemn oath to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution and laws of these United States of America. But none dare call “impeach.”

I am speechless. But not meme-less.

Or,

And not forgetting Congress’ failure to renew the Children’s Health Insurance Program …

Courage.
