Yes. Just like the Asshats the voted in Obamacare they didnt know what was in the law or haw the healthcar sysrem worked or how healthcare insurance work either. The democ4ats spent 8 years toughting how great it is but never told anyone that the new system was rigged to implode in the next 2 to 3 years but the insurance companys have work a end run around it to stay alive for awhile longer now Trump has to fix it. You don't like it well tuff S@%# your stuck with him for 4 more years.
Rubio strategically, intentionally sabotaged it by writing a bill that ended funding for the Risk corridors, a necessary part of the plan to make it sustainable. You wound up with a situation where the Republican congressman puts a bill to purposefully destroy the plan, then when the plan starts to implode, they say "oh look, it is imploding". what a bunch of disingenuous liars they are, and there is a certain low information element of the public, who dont think for themselves, but rather just happily gobble up the fallacious gruel served by Fox news, that actually believed them that it collapsed under its own weight.
Marco Rubio Quietly Undermines Affordable Care Act
WASHINGTON — A little-noticed health care provision slipped into a giant spending law last year has tangled up the Obama administration, sent tremors through health insurance markets and rattled confidence in the durability of President Obama’s signature health law.
The attack stems from two years of effort by Senator Marco Rubio and others in Congress to undermine a key financing mechanism in the law. So for all the Republican talk about dismantling the Affordable Care Act, one Republican presidential hopeful has actually done something toward achieving that goal.
Mr. Rubio’s efforts against the so-called risk corridor provision of the health law have hardly risen to the forefront of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, but his plan limiting how much the government can spend to protect insurance companies against financial losses has shown the effectiveness of quiet legislative sabotage.
The risk corridors were intended to help some insurance companies if they ended up with too many new sick people on their rolls and too little cash from premiums to cover their medical bills in the first three years under the health law. But because of Mr. Rubio’s efforts, the administration says it will pay only 13 percent of what insurance companies were expecting to receive this year. The payments were supposed to help insurers cope with the risks they assumed when they decided to participate in the law’s new insurance marketplaces.
Mr. Rubio’s talking point is bumper-sticker ready. The payments, he says, are “a taxpayer-funded bailout for insurance companies.” But without them, insurers say, many consumers will face higher premiums and may have to scramble for other coverage. Already, some insurers have shut down over the unexpected shortfall.
“Risk corridors have become a political football,” said Dawn H. Bonder, the president and chief executive of Health Republic of Oregon, an insurance co-op that announced in October it would close its doors after learning that it would receive only $995,000 of the $7.9 million it had expected from the government. “We were stable, had a growing membership and could have been successful if we had received those payments. We relied on the payments in pricing our plans, but the government reneged on its promise. I am disgusted.”
Blue Cross and Blue Shield executives have warned the administration and Congress that eliminating the federal payments could have a devastating impact on insurance markets.
Twelve of the 23 nonprofit insurance cooperatives created under the law have failed, disrupting coverage for more than 700,000 people, and co-op executives like Ms. Bonder have angrily cited the sharp reduction in federal payments as a factor in their demise.
But Mr. Rubio is pressing forward, demanding a provision in the final spending bill now under negotiation that continues the current risk corridor restrictions, or even eliminates the program altogether. That enormous spending bill is being worked out as Congress slides toward a deadline of Friday, when much of the federal government’s funding runs out.
Congress established the program in 2010 to protect insurers against the uncertainties they faced in setting the level of insurance premiums when they did not know who would sign up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Under the law, the federal government shares risk with insurers, limiting their gains and losses on insurance sold in the public marketplaces from 2014 through 2016. If consumer payments to an insurer exceed the company’s medical expenses by a certain amount, the insurer pays some of that profit to the government. But if premium payments fall short of medical expenditures by a certain amount, the insurer is eligible for payments from the government.
The hope was that payments into the program would be in balance with payments out, shielding taxpayers from responsibility.
You fail to see he has already done what most Americans wanted he killed the two biggest crime families in America the Democrats and Republicans.
But that means there is only his Trumpism party. We cant live under a one party system. The possibly of a party with no opposition party is dangerous.
