The Trump Regime Cancels Contracts With Obamacare Promoters in 18 Cities

Continuing on their campaign to sabotage the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare," the Trump regime is canceling a program that helps people take advantage of the law.

Contractors in 18 cities will no longer be paid to help people enroll and sign up for plans available on the exchanges.

From the Associated Press:

Community groups say the move was announced to them by contractors last week, and it will further shrink efforts already challenged by a shorter enrollment window and consumer confusion. Some call it an attempt to damage the health law's marketplaces by a president who has made clear his intention to let "Obamacare" fail.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid officials decided not to renew a final option year on contracts with Cognosante and CSRA.

With the federal government canceling programs that help educate people about the law, it will be up to everyone else from average citizens to nonprofits to pick up the slack. No one from Trump's side of the aisle is going to step up.

That's assuming Republicans won't actually manage to repeal the law, but that remains to be seen. Senate Republicans are expected to hold a vote on... something... next week. They still don't know which version of their bill they're going to vote on: the bad version or the really bad version.

  • And yet when we explain to people that not only not Trump but the whole of the GOP is actively sabotaging health care their eyes glaze over

    DNC, if you’re listening, now would be an awesome time to launch an information campaign and website to do what the trump goons decided not to do for the promotion of the ACA.

    Anyone who’s surprised by this story simply hasn’t been paying attention.

    Also, I’d like to propose a correction to the AP:

    Some call it an attempt to damage the health law’s marketplaces by a president who has made clear his intention to let make “Obamacare” fail.

    Article Two, Section 3 “…(the President) shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Or not, evidently. Jeebus.
