Trump Threatens to End Congressional Healthcare

The do-nothing GOP establishment has failed the American people on health care.

These are the same liars and swindlers who campaigned, raising millions, on the “repeal Obamacare” promise.

They all lied.

We were duped.

The Senate was not even able to pass a “skinny repeal.”

Traitor John McCain dragged himself out of a hospital to return to the Senate and cast the deciding vote that killed the repeal.

McCain, who has a “brain tumor,” does not have to use Obamacare.

He has a “Cadillac” health care plan with all sorts of bells and whistles; something that you and I pay for.

President Trump threatened to take away insurance bailout of insurers and cancel congressional insurance if they did not pass a new health care bill quickly.

Trump appears to be talking about cost-sharing subsidies for insurers. Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, recently told insurers such subsidies could end.

“We are looking at the cost-sharing payments on a month-to-month basis. We made them today. We’ll make them tomorrow,” Mulvaney said, according to the Independent Journal Review. “But I don’t think we’ll see a long-term commitment from this administration.”

Some conservatives have also been pushing the White House to end subsidies to lawmakers and their employees made possible by an Office of Personnel Management exemption.

“It’s also troubling that the Trump administration used executive powers to bail out insurers but will not use his lawful executive power to end Obama’s order exempting members of Congress from paying the full Obamacare freight,” Daniel Horowitz recently wrote at ConservativeReview.com.

Senate Republicans have repeatedly tried, but failed, to pass legislation that eliminates or overhauls former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had hoped to pass a “skinny repeal” measure late Thursday. But when the vote finally took place early Friday morning, three Republicans — John McCain of Arizona, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — joined with Democrats in opposition, killing the plan.
