Trump Takes Second Slice Out of Un- constitutional Obamacare Law

from Rush Limbaugh,

President Trump took yet another slice out of Obamacare last night, an even bigger slice than what he took out of it yesterday before the program began. And what he actually did was enforce the rule of law. There was an aspect of Obamacare that has been unconstitutional from the get-go. And Trump ended it! The rule of law triumphs and survives.

the Obamacare subsidies to insurance companies that were never authorized by the United States Congress. The president of the United States cannot willy-nilly start spending money unless it’s authorized by the House of Representatives. And the subsidies to the insurance companies never have been. Subsidies to Obamacare patients had never been authorized by Congress.

The Republicans didn’t have any fingerprints on the original Obamacare. It was a Democrat-passed bill. There was not a single Republican vote on it, and, as such, whatever Obamacare was, it’s totally wrong to blame the Republicans for any of it because at the time they didn’t have the votes to stop it, and at the time the Democrats didn’t permit them to participate anyway.

It’s not a complicated explanation of what happened, but it’s quite controversial because this was a big deal for the Democrats. And now they’re out squealing like stuck pigs over what this is gonna mean to people, and it isn’t going to have a dramatic negative impact immediately on people.

Once again, it simply is reinforcing the Constitution of the United States. A major aspect of Obamacare that made it possible was unconstitutional. And you might say, “Why didn’t Trump do this at first?” Because he’s been trying to have an Obamacare repeal. He’s been working through channels, if you might say, he’s been trying to use the House and the Senate and have them play along and come up with a unified effort to repeal Obamacare and then come up with something else. But the House and the Senate, Democrats especially, but the Republicans really more than anybody didn’t want to play ball.
