President Donald Trump’s executive order issued Thursday is his latest attempt to weaken the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, which he and congressional Republicans failed to repeal after the Congressional Budget Office reported that their alternatives would leave as many as 32 million additional Americans without coverage. A new ruling by a Texas court would cost Americans their health care.

If the ruling is allowed to stand, more than 20 million Americans would be at risk of losing their health insurance, reigniting a winning political issue for Democrats heading into the 2020 elections. President Donald Trump, who never produced a health insurance plan to replace Obamacare, is now promising one after the elections.

Gosh, I seem to remember Trump Promising a new healthcare plan on "DAY ONE ! Now he is saying that he will resolve it in his second term, "Just wait" he says. Haven't seen so much as a whisper about healthcare, or the debt or His many other political blunders, N. Korea, and the latest blunder in Iran. 176 people died because of Trump in the latest airline crash. Trump instigated that and while he didn't fire the missile he had a direct hand in causing this tragedy. It goes to show you how when you have incompetent people running things it can get out of control and next time it could start a war.

After 3 years of chaos, deceit, and cruelty, Trump continues to deliver. We now know that he is ying about promising to design and implement a health plan to replace the ACA,, and we know that he could care less that millions will be without health insurance as well as Medicaid. Mostly children and the elderly will suffer the most, but Trump's got his, so heck with all of those millions of silly, sick Americans living in poverty.
