    You Trump rubes believed Agent Orange when he told you he would give you better healthcare and cheaper. When are you going to wake up and admit he’s a con man?

    Trump’s former health secretary: Americans will pay more because GOP weakened Obamacare

    President Trump's former top health official on Tuesday said the Republican tax law would raise the cost of health insurance for some Americans because it repealed a core provision of the Affordable Care Act.

    Tom Price, Trump's first secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, said people buying insurance on government-run marketplaces will face higher prices because the tax law repealed the ACA's individual mandate. The mandate had forced most Americans to have health coverage or face a financial penalty.

    “There are many, and I’m one of them, who believes that that actually will harm the pool in the exchange market, because you’ll likely have individuals who are younger and healthier not participating in that market, and consequently that drives up the cost for other folks within that market,” Price said at the World Health Care Conference in Washington.

    Price's comments are in line with predictions from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which in November projected 13 million fewer Americans would have health insurance by 2027 as a result of the elimination of the individual mandate. The CBO also said average premiums in the exchanges would increase by about 10 percent in most years over the next decade, compared with a scenario in which the mandate had been left in place.

    We don't want government in the medical insurance business. When are you liars going to realize this? The government has no business there. But I do thank Trump for one thing; Getting rid of the unholy tax if you couldn't afford insurance placed up us by butt boi barry.

    Obamacare wasn't even health care. It was government-mandated insurance that provided very little in actual medical care.

    Thanks Trump, for your dedication to making healthcare so expensive, that very soon the entire middle class won't be able to afford.
    ========================================
    Several states have announced rates for health insurance premiums on the Obamacare exchanges for 2018. Topping the list is Georgia, with rates that are 57 percent higher than last year, while Florida said some premiums will be 45 percent higher.

    Among the reasons for these increases is the uncertainty about the future of the Affordable Care Act. President Donald Trump has vowed to repeal and replace the health care law, which was passed under his predecessor President Barack Obama. Congress had repeatedly tried and failed to deliver on President Trump's promise.

    Insurers are raising premiums in the face of repeated threats from President Trump to stop funding so-called cost-sharing reductions, payments to insurers that cover out-of-pocket costs for some low-income consumers. Trump previously referred to these payments as “bailouts” for insurance companies and threatened to stop making the payments so as to “let Obamacare implode”.
    Health care premiums for 2018 set to go up by as much as 50 percent
    =====================================
    Have no fear, middle class little Trumpeters. will still vote for Trump. There must be something to "shooting yourself in the foot", that feels rewarding for these folks..
