    Trump kills key Obamacare subsidy payments: What it means

    Trump's abrupt withdrawal of the payments leaves all Obamacare insurers on the hook for the last three months of this year, which may spur them to sue. This comes to more than $1 billion, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The payments were expected to total $7 billion this year.

    Trump's move will hurt Americans.

    "These benefits help real people every day, and if they are ended, there will be real consequences," the lobbying groups said. "This action will make it harder for patients to access the care they need. Costs will go up and choices will be restricted."

    Without Subsidies premiums will soar

    --------------------------
    Where we will know the effects is three months before the end of the year. That's October. Midterms are in November.

    You think all those "retiring" Republicans don't know that?

    To top it off those cost share reductions that he dumped are being confused with the advanced premium tax credit (subsidies) which are still there and he cannot get rid of them without legislation. Next thing up is most insurer's kept the cost share reduction's even though they are not being reimbursed by the government, how the premium's will look next year who knows? Since the penalty has been zeroed out starting Jan 1, 2019 or Dec 31st however you want to interpret insurers are working on dirt cheap plans that are not compliant to the law. I know Anthem are working a few and Idaho is attempting to change the law in their state.

    Not reimbursed by the government. Kind of tells the whole story.

    Before Obamacare, many states had no providers. After Obamacare, rural states had one provider when before they had none. So Republicans complained about healthcare. So their leadership "fixed" it. Now once again they will have none. Problem solved.

    Only many in the GOP base are freaking out.

    Trumpcare increased premiums come due in September and October, right before elections.

    I do believe 2016 election's the rates weren't released until the last minute, although they are supposed to be released in October. Some companies release them because they start selling off-marketplace plans Oct 1. The companies that release late are hoping most mail in votes are completed.
