Perfect: Trump Ends Cost-Sharing Subsidies That Help Millions Afford Health Care

The cherry on top of this shit sandwich week: no more health care for millions!

According to WaPoas the Trump administration is dismantling Obamacare, the White House confirmed reports on Thursday that the Trump administration will be ending federal subsidies for health insurers that help millions of low-income Americans afford health care by covering their deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses. Cost subsidies are basically discounts that lower the amount you have to pay for deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance.

That’s grand.

According to Politico the subsidies which were part of Obamacare cost about $7 billion this year. Top officials said that funds will be cut immediately.
