Instead of falling for the distraction of a “leaked” copy of Trump’s tax returns from over a decade ago, I decided to focus on the impending disaster of TrumpCare.
The Congressional Budget Office, which is non-partisan, released their report on TrumpCare and was immediately criticized by the Trump team.
The CBO report says the new plan will leave 24 million without insurance. Republicans who love to cite CBO reports when they agree with them, attacked this report with a lot of “nuh-uhs.” Paul Ryan however was excited that the report says the plan will save $337 billion from the budget.
Ryan, who is supposedly a policy wonk, has the impression that insurance companies will compete to insure sick people.
Republicans were expecting a bleak report from the CBO and Trump has insisted that he doesn’t want this health plan to be named after him. He already has that disaster named Donald Jr to make excuses for. He shot a what this time?
Much like the broken promise of releasing his tax returns, Trump’s promise of “something better” replacing Obamacare is turning out to be another lie.
Currently a 64-year-old who makes $26,500 a year has to pay $1,700 of their premium under Obamacare. With the “something better” plan that same person’s premium cost rises to $14,600.
Every single state that voted for Trump will see their premium tax credits drop. Individual enrollee’s tax credit in North Carolina, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama, Nebraska, and Wyoming would decrease by more than $4,000 on average. Alaska gets it worse where it will decrease by $10, 243.
Trump suckers may still support No. 45 if he shot a man on Fifth Avenue, but we’ll see how they feel about him when his “something better” cuts into their bank accounts.
That’s what happens when you let the boobs take over.
