President Trump declared today that Obamacare is finished, that it’s dead and gone and that there is no such thing as Obamacare anymore:

He says this because his administration last week decided to end the bailouts for insurance companies. So now apparently Congress is having emergency meetings to figure out how they can solve this new crisis.
As far as Obamacare being dead and gone – I’ll believe it when I see it. How do we know that Congress simply won’t find a way to restore the bailouts to keep the ‘gravy train’ flowing, as Trump put it?
I like the move Trump made last week and I hope it finally spurs Congress to dump Obamacare and make health care great again (yes I said it!). However let’s not put the cart before the horse.
