6. I think he meant Obamacare is going to explode. Which it is not.

 

I don't think we appreciate how utterly masterful Obama was in crafting the ACA. It is so comprehensive that it necessarily is hideously complex yet other than universal care, it really is the best step forward with funding mechanisms and coverage options.

Masterful.

7. Ok, that at least makes sense

Except it hasn't and it won't, of course.

He lives in his own reality where everyone hates Obama and all his success as much as he does.

9. Trump did tell the IRS to stop enforcing the mandate.

That'll have a drastic effect on the ACA as it's currently structured.

11. Sure, but that leaves a very visible hole that can't be obfuscated.

 

What happens when it's reported that not enforcing the mandate is the cause of stress on the ACA? I don't see how the GOP can deny its culpability.

13. Trump is the sole one responsible, actually.

It was an EO. But, they're going to go the route of people wanted the mandate gone, so Trump removed it. If Democrats would have worked with us to pass our AHCA (which we all know was horrible, but the voters never felt an impact from), then this wouldn't be taking place now.

Wait for it.

15. Yeah, they will try that. But hopefully Dolt45's string of failures will brand them all the same.

16. Yes, he made suchan order. Now let's see him enforce it.

I culd be wrong, but I'm fairly confident that the president can't unilaterally cancel the mandate. It doesn't make sense that Democrats, in writing the bill, would have left something that important vulnerable to executive whim. The IRS says the executive order is being reviewed, but taxpayers who owe a penalty are still directed to submit it with their return.

8. How Is This the Democrats' Fault

The Democrats had nothing to do with this. It is not the fault of the Democrats that Paul Ryan could not get his party in line. What, did Trump want Nancy Pelosi to go and round up the votes for Ryan?

10. I guess it's because the Dems

did not prepare the Repukniks for how hard it is to govern. Right now Ryan is whining that they were used to being the opposition party and it is hard work to be the governing party. Holy shit! What babies.

12. Let's see:

How is Trump likely to react to a humiliating defeat? Take personal responsibility? Or blabber nonsense about President Obama?
