(Tea Party 247) – One of the many reasons the Democratic Party and the head honchos in the progressive movement hate President Donald Trump so much is because he promised to destroy the infrastructure that former President Barack Obama put in place that would lay the foundationfor the transformation of America from a republic into a socialist nightmare one step removed from total government control, which is exactly what the left wants.
Part of this means dismantling Obamacare, something Trump promised to do if he won the 2016 presidential election. He’s been trying to take steps to do just that ever since, but has faced a lot of opposition to his efforts and only made minimal progress.
Still, that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to try. In fact, the Trump administration is now asking for the Supreme Court to completely and totally invalidate the whole of Obamacare.
Here’s more on this from Just The News:
In a dramatic election-year request, the Trump administration Thursday night asked the Supreme Court to strike down the entirety of the Obamacare law, saying it wrongly limits consumer choices, raises Americans costs and violates the Constitution.
In a closely-watched filing, the Justice Department told the justices that the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate violated the Constitution, and if that provision is struck down, the rest of the law must be terminated.
“The entire ACA thus must fall with the individual mandate, though the scope of relief entered in this case should be limited to provisions shown to injure the plaintiffs,” the administration’s brief argued.
In identifying harm to American consumers, the DOJ cited two of the law’s least popular impacts among critics: rising costs and fewer insurance choices.
“The individual plaintiffs have shown that they are injured by at least some ACA provisions—namely, various provisions regulating health-insurance plans that limit the 14 range and terms of plans the individual plaintiffs may obtain and that increase their costs of obtaining coverage,” the government argued.
The filing, as expected, lays out President Trump’s arguments against the law as he heads into a fall election against Joe Biden. Democrats immediately expressed dismay at the course chosen by the administration, saying striking down the law would cost up to 20 million Americans their insurance in the middle of a pandemic.
“President Trump and the Republicans’ campaign to rip away the protections and benefits of the Affordable Care Act in the middle of the coronavirus crisis is an act of unfathomable cruelty,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
Obamacare was never designed to actually help folks get affordable healthcare. It was designed to be a stepping stone to get us to a complete single-payer healthcare system funded by the taxpayer. This would overwhelm the system, cause a collapse, and lead to further government intervention. It’s all part of a well crafted plan to end the American experiment.
It’s critical that we never stop fighting to destroy this beast. Obamacare must be removed. Here’s to hoping Trump’s efforts are successful.
