2. Elections have consequences. Mississippi voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

7. There's two problems with that

 

First it hurts everybody, including those who didn't vote for Trump in terms of increased insurance rates. Second, unless you're willing to let them die, we still end up paying for their care.

3. "There is solid empirical evidence that less outreach will lead to fewer people enrolling...

in insurance."

The Trumpians are doubling down on their sabotage strategy.

4. The article is about how the Trump administration is deliberately sabotaging Obamacare

to prevent new patients from enrolling. Trump is crippling the program and hurting millions of Americans so he can keep bragging about how Obamacare is "failing", in no small part thanks to him.

The title is a bit confusing, but to those who haven't read the article,

For the past three years, the US Health and Human Services Department has partnered with a health advocacy group in Mississippi on an education tour before Obamacare enrollment started. They would meet around the states with groups that sign people up for coverage ó state officials, health centers, insurance brokers, and the like ó to prepare for open enrollment.


The last section explains some of the dirty tricks Trump and Republicans are using to hamper the ACA.

8. That is correct!

dRump couldn't get "Obamacare" defeated, so he's gonna' choke it to death - cut funding and let the insurance companies abandon their markets and "claim" that "Obamacare" has failed - BECAUSE THEY STARVED IT TO DEATH!!!!

Words cannot come close to explain how evil they are!!!
