Trump lies about Obamacare

So I just watched conservative President Trump sit around a table with other Republicans say how Obamacare is a disaster. He cited that Anthem is pulling out of the Ohio marketplace as sign that it does't work. This is another lie that Trump is telling you. It's like Trump University. He's selling you a bill of goods.

Here's the truth. Yes, Anthem is pulling out. But it's not because of any problem of Obamacare. It's because of the liar in chief, Trump. Anthem, " singled out the uncertainty over whether the government would continue paying crucial subsidies, known as cost-sharing reduction payments, that reimburse insurers for limiting out-of-pocket expenses for lower-income customers. "President Trump has threatened to cut off the funding on multiple occasions, and in May his administration asked for an additional three months to decide whether it would continue appealing a lawsuit brought by House Republicans aimed at stopping the payments, which are expected to be worth $7 billion this year." Slate. So, Trump's threats to end subsidies to Anthem caused it to pull out.

Cone on you poor Trump voters. The conservative Republicans are not on your side. Contact that right winger you have as a congressman or senator. Tell them you want a single payer healthcare plan or fix Obamacare. Then vote liberal Democratic when you can. RESIST.
