How Trump Plans to Sabotage Healthcare

If Obamacare collapses - blame Donald Trump. Even as he rails against terrorism in the Middle East, the president is hatching up a few plots of his own here in the States.

He's now literally trying to sabotage Obamacare.

Will it work or blow up in his face?

As talk of treason and treachery swirls around Washington, Donald Trump has hatched a plot to take down Obamacare from the inside - and it could leave millions without health insurance.

Donald Trump has said repeatedly that Obamacare is about to collapse - but if the healthcare law does go under, he'll share most of the blame.

That's because according to Politico, Trump wants to stop paying insurance companies the $7 billion in subsidies they get every year to help cover the cost of insuring low-income Americans.

Known as "Cost-Sharing Reductions", these subsidies are a key part of the Obamacare exchanges.

If Trump goes ahead and cancels them, many insurance companies would probably just pull out of the exchanges altogether - and the market would collapse.

So in other words, Trump is trying to sabotage Obamacare. Is this what a president does?

Trump is clearly hoping Democrats take all the blame here. Will it work?
