Trump to Obamacare Shoppers: Sorry, Store’s Closed

Obama Shop Closed

Despite larger-than-anticipated interest from consumers and past precedent for doing so, the Trump administration let the open enrollment season for Obamacare end as scheduled on Friday.

The non-decision by the Department of Health and Human Services to simply let the deadline come and go came despite pleas from health care advocates and Democratic lawmakers to extend the window.

On Tuesday, Sens. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Patty Murray (D-WA) drafted a letter to Eric Hargan, the acting HHS secretary and Seema Verma, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, requesting that they consider extending the period to Jan. 31, 2018 (PDF).

TVNL Comment:  Trump supporters are living in a self-inflicted nightmare.  They will see their taxes go up and their health care go down.  Lemmings end up going over the cliff.
