This is what TrumpCare looks like: Episode 2

Either Trump is oblivious to reports that White House chaos and incompetence are causing insurers to pull out of health care markets, or he just doesn’t care. Reports indicate that he is now saying he wants to stop cost sharing reduction payments, which would sow further chaos in the markets. From Politico:

This is what TrumpCare looks like.

Remember when we said that the uncertainty caused by the Trump Administration would undermine insurance markets? Well, it’s happening. According to the LA Times, health insurers are making plans to dramatically raise premiums or exit marketplaces. And who do they blame? Trump.

LOL

Wanted to be sure you saw this Bloomberg story about how Republicans might have to vote on TrumpCare again because they passed it without actually knowing what was in it. After the fierce backlash that Republicans faced back home, do GOP leaders really think their Members will vote for the bill again? Best of luck to the GOP Whip team.

Hoyer Floor Remarks on Syria Sanctions

I thank my friend, the gentleman from New York, the Ranking Member on the Foreign Affairs Committee. I thank Mr. Kinzinger for his leadership and as well his statement. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of this bipartisan legislation which will impose tough sanctions on entities aiding the Assad regime in Syria.

TrumpCare Fact Check

“Republicans are on the defense when it comes to TrumpCare, but alternative facts won’t make the legislation any more popular,” said Whip Hoyer. “The reality is that TrumpCare will kick 24 million Americans off of their coverage and force millions of others to pay more for less. Democrats will continue to hold Republicans accountable for their vote and make it clear to the American people what is at stake as Senate Republicans move ahead with this repeal effort.”
