Some Obamacare subsidies to states coming to an end because a federal judge ruled them unconstitutional has the Left flipping out and blaming the Trump White House. Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy is among them:
Important: if Trump stops paying insurers, rates for EVERYBODY go up – not just for people on ACA exchange plans. Get ready, America!!

Nice try, but no:
“Trump” doesn’t pay insurers, Congress does. Congress didn’t. So Trump can’t. You’re a legislator. https://t.co/PEOTaNEng4

Murphy might also be shocked to know all that money comes from taxpayers (or shouldering future taxpayers with more debt). A mandatory screening of all “Schoolhouse Rock” episodes are desperately needed in Congress.
Makes no sense for Dems to claim the current executive is unfit and also complain about the executive refusing to usurp Congressional power. https://t.co/VFOk2W5sJP

They plug their ears, cover their eyes and stay firmly in denial.
