President Trump announced he is ending the cost-sharing reduction subsidies the federal government has been paying insurance companies to help poor and middle-income Americans pay for their health insurance premiums. Trump’s moves to sabotage Obamacare will drastically increase the number of uninsured people across the U.S., and are guaranteed to deepen the chasm between healthier, wealthier Americans and poorer, chronically sicker Americans who cost more to insure. Trump’s ending the subsidies assures that people with chronic illnesses who buy their insurance on the open market and who have relied on subsidies to help afford their insurance will suffer the most, by incurring crushingly heavy insurance premiums.
