Trump's Long History of Holding Health Care Hostage

The story of Donald Trump and health coverage rightly starts with the
story of Donald Trump and William Trump.

.

William was born in 1999, fighting for his life. He suffered seizures, and
his breathing stopped twice. William's medical bills were enormous. That's
when Donald tried to remove the infant from the Trump family health plan.

.

Why? Retaliation against his nephew (William's father) for challenging the
will of Fred Sr. It seems the Trump patriarch had left the family of one
son  Donald's deceased brother, Fred Jr.  largely out of his estate. Any
part Donald may have played in nudging the elderly Fred Sr. to do that is
not public knowledge. What's clear is that with his brother basically cut
from the will, Donald inherited many more millions.

.

But the family lawyer ruled that no, you can't throw baby William off the
family's health plan. William survived, though he later developed cerebral
palsy.

.

My point is to note the president's indifference to questions of life and
death when dollars enter the picture. Here he actually held his own
grandnephew's life hostage in a fight over money.

.

Which brings us to Trump's diabolical crusade to blow up the Affordable
Care Act. The Republican Congress failed to kill Obamacare for him, so
he's now single-handedly destabilizing the health exchanges through
various executive acts. Should they collapse, he'll say over the wreckage,
"See? I told you it was a disaster."

.

Trump's latest, and most extreme, move is to take away $7 billion in
subsidies that help 7 million low-income people afford health insurance.
The result would be as follows: The sick desperate for coverage would bear
the freight, while the healthy would have less incentive to buy into the
exchanges. Premiums for the popular plans would spike by 25 percent, the
Congressional Budget Office estimates.

.

Heaven knows Republican lawmakers tried to destroy Obamacare on their own.
They couldn't because nearly the entire medical establishment called for
saving the program, and huge numbers of their constituents depend on it.
