ㅤ”‘Americans need more choices in health insurance so they can find coverage that meets their needs,’ Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a statement. ‘The status quo is failing too many Americans who face skyrocketing costs and fewer and fewer choices.

Ending Obamacare Subsidies Will Lower Premiums, Health Care Experts Say

ㅤ”The Washington Post, ABC News, and others failed to mention that while health insurers will no longer receive billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded subsidies, those same 2 in 10 consumers facing increased rates will also have more health insurance coverage options, thanks to the President signing an executive order allowing them to purchase their coverage across state lines.
ㅤThis move, according to conservative healthcare policy experts, will actually result in lower premiums.”

Judge plans to rule next week in Obamacare subsidies fight

ㅤJudge Vince Chhabria

ㅤ”A group of 19 states filed suit last week in federal court in San Francisco, asking that the Department of Health and Human Services be required to continue the so-called cost-sharing reduction payments despite President Donald Trump’s announcement last week that they would be ended.
ㅤDuring a telephone scheduling hearing on the states’ request for a temporary restraining order requiring the government to continue the payments, U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria said he’d like to rule on that issue next week.”

ㅤô¿ô …Chhabria will rule in favor of the socialists. He was appointed by Obama in 2015. The judicial system is corrupt through and through.

Story at The Hill, notes at the DC Drain, image from thehill(.com).

ㅤI think McCain, Flake, Corker, Rand Paul and the Freedom Caucus are all pleased with the President’s decision to end the subsidies. Apparently Collins is the only Republican senator who is “disappointed.” Collins should be booted out of the GOP.
