    It is now being reported that our "brilliant" President is manipulating the health insurance markets again and driving up health care costs for everyone. Remember the good old days when Republicans used to speak AGAINST government intrusion into the markets?!?!? Well, those days are long gone. Now....to the new brand of Republican....the government SHOULD manipulate the markets and drive up costs in health care (or in other industries by imposing tariffs).

    It is impossible to tell what Republicans stand for anymore because it changes with the weather. All they need is a megalomaniac to tell them what to think....flippin' cowards.

    Oh yeah, let's not forget that under Republican control...they INCREASED the budget deficit to $1 trillion just to give the people who crashed the economy in 2008 a huge windfall of cash through the tax code. More "winning"???

    /-----/ It was a court order, you dingbat. Did you bother to read the article past the headline?
    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the agency that oversees the program, cited a recent federal court decision that found the formula for calculating the risk adjustment payments to be flawed. In a March 2018 ruling out of New Mexico, US District Court Judge Thomas Browning that the methodology used by the federal government was "arbitrary and capricious" and remanded it back to the agency, according to Lexis Legal News.

    Try again sunshine....it was the ADMINISTRATION'S decision to suspend payments. They COULD (if their interest was to stabilize markets) continue those payments until resolved.

    By they way, since when has the Trump Administration listened to the courts? That's a real knee slapper.

    So...to be clear.....TRUMP is the reason health care costs are going up. Started last year when he decided not to subsidize the HI market and is continuing now.

    You don't "get" health insurance....do you? Not sure how getting more people involved in risk pools increases health care costs?????

    By the way, based on your posts.....you're one of those who gives Trump credit for the economy, right?! Even though he hasn't done jackdiddlysquat for it (other than ride the wave started by Obama). I'd LOVE to hear how giving the people who crashed the economy 10 years ago a windfall of cash was great for the economy?!?
