Quote
President Donald Trump has not given up on the holy grail of repealing Obamacare, and on Wednesday he revealed his next move, threatening to use health insurance subsidies as a weapon to get Democrats to negotiate on reform.

Trump said his administration may not have the legal authority to make cost-sharing reduction payments, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. So-called CSR subsidies reduce out-of-pocket costs for low-income Affordable Care Act enrollees, but Republicans in Congress sued the Obama administration, saying they expenditures were not authorized under the ACA.

Trump told the Journal he did not want people to get hurt by stopping the payments, but that what he thinks "should happen? is the Democrats will start calling me and negotiating."

I think Trump is going to get a good dose of how corrupt the federal government is when he tries to do anything along this line.  AS long as any federal jusdge can be approached to halt the president, our country is compromised.  We will witness the worst form of gridlock over the next four years.  The Republican Congress is a disgrace.

I tend to agree.
