Trump says Supreme Court ending Obamacare would be “a big WIN”

President Trump on Sunday tweeted that the Supreme Court invalidating the Affordable Care Act would be “a big WIN for the USA!”

And here’s the Tweet:

And then Chuck jumped on it…

Back to Axios:

Why it matters: Democrats have argued that confirming a Trump-appointed justice to the Supreme Court would put the Affordable Care Act, which protects pre-existing conditions, in jeopardy. Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Amy Coney Barrett, has written that she disagreed with Chief Justice John Roberts when he ruled to uphold the law.

So he’s amplifying the Dim’s message, which is totally on-brand for our brain-dead aspiring fascist Prznint Stupid.

    It’s a firehose flood of garbage, as usual for this president. Hit the American public with chaos on every front and let them sort it out. We know that the first thing we can do is remain calm and vote out every Republican on the ballot, Trump first. He’s confident that his new Supreme Court appointee will carry him in an undecided vote, so we have to smother them, bury them. Killing the ACA has always puzzled me because it seems like having so many people die, including the massive numbers from Covid, seems like an insane policy. Especially when they have nothing to replace it with!

    The new Supreme may be a done deal, but we can’t be overwhelmed by all of this. Vote, vote, vote!

    TG – your typo is quite appropo. He wants to be able to quit the greatest of Obama’s legacies, and the replacement will be nothing more than the “shovel-ready jobs” that burying over 200,000 citizens – and counting, and mounting – requires. And he’s not being quiet about anything these days: the rigged election, the transfer, er, continuance of Power, followed by the complete domination and then elimination of the Democratic Party are among the lofty goals he holds so early. And then will come the elimination of Soc Sec, SSDI, and Medicare, precipitating the deaths of thousands more, mostly elderly, all in the name of easing the Debt Crunch.

    Which was caused by his, and the RethugliKKKan policies.

    Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better, and FAR cheaper, alternative if it is terminated in the Supreme Court. Would be a big WIN for the USA!

    Let’s analyze this.
    FAR cheaper – we don’t spend any money on the poors at all. Just let them die if they get sick.
    MUCH better – Anyone who catches an infection disease from the poors was too close to them anyway. All that extra hospital space and medical care can then be devoted to the important people, like him and his family.
    big WIN for the USA! – We weed out all the [rest of the] middle class people who would be living in gated communities instead of going around all those sick and coughing poors if they were really important people . We’ll be left with the BEST and the most TREMENDOUS and BEAUTIFUL and WONDERFUL people. Things will be much better with them out of the way!

    And the funny part (sic) is that those predicted losses from when we lose all the telephone sanitizers won’t happen because there are no more public phones!

      Some of those people have a point, but they are not looking at all the benefits, just at being forced to purchase insurance from an authorized agency.
      I saw some of the impact the tax-and-subsidy had from a tax perspective.
      There were subsidies via IRS tax reconciliation, but those didn’t even phase out like pretty much any other tax deduction or benefit, it was just “Make up to this much and get a subsidy, and make one dollar more and your subsidy vanishes” – a lot like how people think tax brackets work, in fact. Pretty much any other tax benefit is set up to be on some sort of scale, but this one – you have the subsidy all year and make that extra dollar and suddenly you owe all of that subsidy back plus anything else for the years insurance premiums. Other tax breaks don’t work that way. They phase in, not drop off a cliff like the ACA.
      Pretty sure it was deliberate sabotage.

      What makes the ACA tougher than it looks in spite of inflated the flaws is the other benefits.
      The list below leaves out the 80/20 rule. (20% of insurance premiums max go to running the companies) and probably other real benefits the ACA brought about.

        Obamacare is the reason I’m still alive.

        He increased the participation level for the states who accepted and implemented the Medicaid expansion to 135% of the Mean (Average) Federal Poverty Level, in its first year, in order to qualify more people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to avail themselves of that lifeline. In its second year, and every year thereafter, it was increased to 150%, but it had to be renewed in 2017, by a simple majority vote in both Houses. Which was passed by the House, but shot down by the Senate, and those wascally RethugliKKKlans reversed the threshold back to the former Official Poverty Levels, by attaching it as a Rider to a “must-pass” bill, so it was quickly signed into Law. And those ridiculously low levels were, since the 1990s, and still are, $12,500 per yr for a single adult male like me, who earns just a tad over $16,000 per annum on Soc Sec.

        Paul Krugman wrote an excellent piece this weekend, on that very subject, which he believes should be the Clarion Call, for the Dims to sound off, to rally their supporters. We’ve gotta start hollering about something, and the ACA is on the docket, to be heard by The Supremes, before the election, and since the majority of Americans who lost their jobs also lost their Health Care plan, it’s at the very least a good, solid plank to have in the platform that doesn’t seem quite big enough to provide even a podium for a soapbox, at the moment.

        And for the life of me, (swidt?) I’ll never understand the reasoning behind all those Red States that declined the Medicaid expansion, even though it was 100% federally-financed the first year, and then 95% thereafter, for the life of the program.

        DC – As far as I could see the one rotten plank of the ACA when rolled out was the structure of the subsidy. It shouldn’t be that hard to fix, but rather than fix it all the Reslugs want to do is use that as the reason to burn that thing down.
        I don’t understand it either, DC. Not the refusal of Medicaid expansion, not the planting of subsidy bombs, not the stripping of a penalty for not having coverage and not the unending efforts to kill it piecemeal.
        I could probably come up with a reasoning for it along the lines of “there shouldn’t be free stuff for those people”, but I will never understand.

        By the way, is Paul Krugman still too shrill for people who have enough resources that they probably wouldn’t have to worry about a complete economic collapse? I quit caring what they though a year before the Bush economic collapse, so I haven’t kept up.

      Found a Krugman article that isn’t behind the NYT paywall. I’d put it in a reply to DC, but that isn’t an option.

    Trump is actually correct. SCROTUS ends Obama Care and the new Unified Democratic Government in 2021 has NO CHOICE but to enact Medicare For All. Another one of those “Look What You Made Us Do” victories.
