Trump's Moral Vacuum - Bullies and Trumpcare

USA Today

Trumpcare is the result not of a thoughtful process, but nine months of tearing down every element of the law he could possibly touch — from outreach to marketing support to state innovation to, now, the very fabric of how insurance markets work. Strenuous objections are coming from patient groups, physicians and hospitals.

The American Academy of Actuaries, no political hacks, says his executive order will lead to higher costs for American families, solvency concerns for insurers, and reduced protections for consumers once they get sick. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has already told us the impact of his move to stop the “cost sharing reduction” payments to insurers — a near $200 billion increase in the deficit, 20% higher average insurance premiums and a million more Americans uninsured.

Taken together, these acts of economic and political defiance bring us Trumpcare. It’s vandalism pure and simple: destruction without regard to the lives impacted. And like the teenager, Trump will deny any of the blame when it shows up.
