Trump's quest to kill Obamacare hurts the middle class

"...Like their peers in many states around the nation, Utah's insurers are steeply hiking rates for next year in part because they anticipated President Trump would stop funding a key set of Obamacare subsidies that help lower-income enrollees afford health care. Trump lived up to his vow earlier this month when he announced that he would end the cost-sharing payments.

Whom will this move hurt the most?

The middle class, who aren't protected from the rate hikes like those of more modest means.

Nearly seven million people who buy individual policies don't qualify for premium subsidies. These include the roughly 1.6 million Obamacare enrollees who earn more than $47,500 as an individual or $97,200 as a family of four this year, and the 5.1 million who buy individual coverage outside of the Obamacare exchange.

These middle class folks will bear the full brunt of the premium increases, unlike the 8.7 million enrollees who receive federal assistance to keep their premiums to less than 10% of their annual income.

They were the Americans that Trump and congressional Republicans promised to help by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Instead, they will be hit the hardest..."

It's already crap. Skyrocketing premiums... out of reach deductibles... little if any choices.

it was simply a fascist program to begin with... outrageous collusion with enormous healthcare corps.

It's just like the corp tax... leftists don't understand the base issue or care about the result.

Critical and objective thinking has been "educated" out of the masses.

It's been skyrocketing crap since the 80's. Single payer should have been implemented then.
Would have all the bugs worked out of it by now.

Like the va? Socialized healthcare is shit to begin with... and gets worse from there. The only real way to contain costs in that system is to control society. A wet dream for leftists... I know.
