President Trump has faced opposition from Democrats and even many in the Republican establishment to fulfilling his promises to the American people.
But it’s a mistake to underestimate Trump’s ability to get the job done, regardless of the challenges facing him.
Senators from both sides of the aisle thought they had successfully blocked Trump’s efforts to kill Obamacare.
But the president just came back and hit them with a surprise left hook that’s certainly got liberals in both camps HOWLING.

The statement reads:
“Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payment to insurance companies under Obamacare. In light of this analysis, the Government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments. The United States House of Representatives sued the previous administration in Federal court for making these payments without such an appropriation, and the court agreed that the payments were not lawful. The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system. Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.”
In short, Barack Obama shoved Obamacare down our throats without gaining the proper approval to do so, because he knew the American people didn’t want it.
Obama passed his health care act without actual approval for the money needed to cover it. And then he STOLE our tax dollars to do so anyway.
Even the Federal courts agreed Obama’s stunt was UNLAWFUL.
And President Trump isn’t going to continue implementing unlawful policies.
So, no more money for insurance companies under Obamacare.
Game. Set. Match. Trump wins again.
