Obamacare didn't implode, so now Trump is trying to blow it up

“I like chaos,” President Trump once said. He appeared to be joking — but he sometimes governs as if he meant it.

The latest case in point is Obamacare, the federal program that extended medical insurance to about 20 million previously uninsured people.

Last week, Trump blindsided his own allies in Congress by renewing his demand for complete repeal of the Affordable Care Act, as the 2010 healthcare law is more formally known, and promising that his party would soon offer “a plan that is far better.”

The president ordered the Justice Department to tell a federal court that his administration wants the law struck down as unconstitutional — every bit of it, including its protections for people with preexisting conditions and its guarantee that children can stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26.

1. Trump's mission to DESTROY Health Care will result in a Democrat taking the White House.....


Those Americans, even Trump voters, who have Health Insurance and Care access because of the ACA, will revolt. Even they see that their lives have been made better. THAT is the message Democrats are putting out there. Which is why Health Care is #1 issue Americans care about.

2. Chaos is all Trump has left.

No one pays any attention to him any more. Mitch said he was on his own on Health Care.

He has a one track mind and often runs off the rails.

4. Democrats will win then if Trump voters do not vote....

Just as Democrats who did not vote in 2016 that paved the way for Trump to win because they did not like Hillary. Or switched from Obama to Trump. Democrats will get those Obama voters back.
