MFP accurately reax to Trump cutting off Obamacare subsidies

MP   |   Published October 13, 2017

Thank you, God.

On Thursday, the Trump regime announced it would circumvent Congress and unilaterally halt key Obamacare subsidies– reducing access and increasing premiums just as voters head to the polls next November:

The cost-sharing reduction payments, paid to insurers, were a component of Obamacare that made health insurance more affordable for qualified individuals and families. Ending the subsidy payments poses a major threat to the ACA — it’s likely to cause premiums to skyrocket for patients who purchase insurance on the exchanges.

Democrats currently lead the 2018 generic ballot ~47-39. In the past, that meant a 1994/2006/2010-like wave erection.

Not anymore.

Congressional districts have been redrawn and gerrymandered in such a way that an 8-point margin of victory nationally translates into only ~+5-10 seats– well short of the +24 Democrats need to retake the House.

Fortunately, poor, uneducated Trump voters disproportionately rely on Obamacare.

Particularly in states that Trump won…

In combination w/:

Ending Obamacare subsidies could mean the difference between +10 and +24 in next year’s midterms.

While the GOP will almost certainly retain control of the Senate, the Speaker’s gavel gives Democrats the power to bury Trump’s legislative agenda under an avalanche of hearings and subpoenas.

It is therefore absolutely imperative that Democrats find a way to DL scuttle negotiations w/ the regime in order to allow Trump supporters to suffer the full impact of Obamacare’s collapse.
