When it comes to President Trump, surprises are few. Trump has taken to his old ways once again. He has now threatened to end any sort of payments for Obamacare. All of this is because the Obamacare repeal wasn’t passed in Congress recently.
It makes one wonder about how many other issues Trump will approach the same way. Those most affected by such a move will be the insurance companies and members of Congress.
Social media continues to be the main platform for Trump venting his frustrations. Trump tweeted on twitter recently “after seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!”
If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!

Who Faces Threats
Trump threatened Congress members and Insurance companies who get bailouts. This is a threat that won’t benefit them in any way. He said “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, Bailouts for Insurance Companies and Bailouts for Members of Congress will end very soon!
Knowing how Trump operates, his threats shouldn’t be taken lightly. The Senators themselves might have expected some sort of backlash from Trump. Is this what they expected or were they caught by surprise?
Well a response was quick in coming. Charles Schumer the Senate minority leader responded to Trump. He said Trump needs to “stop playing politics with people’s lives and health care, start leading, and finally begin acting Presidential.”
Not His First Time
Trump has made threats before when it comes to payments. Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR) payments are another one he has threatened to stop. Unless Trump has a change of heart, we can expect more of the same from him.
Does anyone have a plan that can calm the President down? Or will this continue till his term is up, which is a very far time away? America is a Democratic society, but with Trump’s behavior, you have to wonder.
If Congress stands up for their rights, this can turn ugly. The Senators have the right to approve a bill or not. Anything based on ethics and legislature should be honored. You can expect more to see more controversy as time passes.
America has pride itself on being a Country for the free. Press, political and religious freedom is all under threat. This alone is enough to cause problems for Trump.
Let’s hope all of this contention doesn’t create instability for the Country. At the end of the day, health care is what people need. A healthy Country is based on the health of its Citizens. Lack of proper health care and the Nation will soon suffer.
Regardless to whom you are, everyone needs healthcare. So why would you try to rob the people who you represent of good health? It took the peoples votes to place Trump in the White House, so why treat those responsible for putting you there that way?
Whatever happens might not be pretty. Let us all hope the next move is in this Country’s favor.
