….As Trump begins to slowly dismantle it are cries born out of ignorance.
Trump is simply following the law known as Obamacare instead of breaking the law like his predecessor.
President Obama understood that without reimbursement, the insurance companies would flee the exchanges or raise prices prohibitively. His signature legacy monument would be threatened. To prevent that, he violated the law. In 2014, his administration unilaterally began making non-appropriated cost-sharing payments to insurance companies. Those payments have continued, even through the first nine months of the Trump administration.
These payments are blatantly illegal. The federal district court in Washington so ruled last year.
