so apparently there were 14 states that allowed insurers to set their premiums at a level that assumed csr payments would remain in place, and insurers in those states (may?) have contracts that allow them to withdraw from the market now that trump ended them. so while premiums might be locked in, participation may not be in a lot of places.

To be honest I feel pretty good about my decision to slowly, over the course of a few decades, drink myself to death.

Trump reminds me of myself in undergrad playing a Chinese card game with dorm mates where I didn't understand the rules, so I would just play some card and everyone would freak out and get pissy with me because I did something unpredictable that just created chaos. But I had to pretend like it was part of my master plan and be like "what I did was entirely within the rules, deal with it"
Note: mildly comedic.

Really excited to be getting not a lot of income with no real job in NYC as we go into the barely advertised open enrollment period in a few weeks

Definitely don’t just want to die or anything

In the last few weeks it's become increasingly apparent to me that everyone on trump's staff & congress know that their time in power is limited and have collectively decided to push their evil agendas as quickly as possible, before trump strokes out or they all get voted out next year.

It's like Rome is burning and instead of putting out the fire they've decided to just raid the city as much as possible before it collapses.

I also think that in this way it acts as an allegory for the baby boomers and white america in general.

I woke up, immediately started thinking about how much anguish and misery these subsidies being pulled is going to cause, and felt a real bottomless sense of dread about how much damage he's still going to be able to do before 2018, let alone 2020. It is a very bad morning in a year of bad mornings.

And I don't want to talk about the tweet where he says "the people of Puerto Rico know how bad things were before the H's" because it honestly makes me wanna throw myself in front of a bus.

I don't know when exactly I will give up trying to understand the reasoning behind actions, not quite there yet.

so uh, I don't follow, what exactly is the benefit of doing this? I mean the cost calculation that spits out that this is even just a financially "beneficial cut", long term.

the only reasoning behind any of his decisions is undoing everything that obama did, regardless of whether it makes sense. This entire administration runs on pure spite.

he and republicans have said since the beginning that the ACA is ruinous, and when it proved not to be, they made it so

it's gained significantly in popularity, so the only option available is to destroy it and then point at the mangled corpse of the law and say "see look how messed up it is"

his tweet to call him to fix it is... almost funny.

Trump admin wants two things RE health care:

1. Obamacare to end
2. Trump to look good

I guess he thinks he can force Congress' hand on point two by unilaterally gutting Obamacare, thus killing two birds with one stone. But there's no way any "bipartisan" solution will represent a step forward. It'll just be ACA with weaker consumer protections and tax breaks for wealthy and corporations.

it's basically the entire Republican agenda for the past decade plus, concentrated into one bill so it's a lot more obvious.

"the government isn't helping you" -> "elect me to fix it" -> destroy the government's ability to help people -> "the government isn't helping you" -> "elect me to fix it" ->

2. Trump to look good or appearing to fix jackshit
is where I wonder how any adviser thinks that is going to play out. I mean okay, people are gullible and under-informed and some are outright stupid, but come on.

Well, of course they'll lie and blame everyone else, and the ~25% of the voter base that blindly supports Trump will be fine with it. R's will say its the cost of doing business. Most people still won't vote.

I don't know how anyone keeps hope or thinks this is going to resolve into anything but 8 years of Trump.
