Trump Seems Very Pleased That Anthem Will Withdraw From Obamacare (VIDEO)


Trump is a ruthless capitalist who doesn’t care if people die if Obamacare is repealed. He retweeted a segment by Fox & Friends about “Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield withdrawing from Obamacare.”


It was announced that Anthem is leaving the Nevada exchange entirely because of the uncertainty around the Affordable Care Act. This intent was communicated by the health care company to the Nevada government on 28th July. Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada called it “a significant blow to the state’s individual marketplace.”

Sandoval added, “I am frustrated and disappointed with Anthem’s surprise and abrupt decision to leave the healthcare exchange especially during uncertain times. Residents in Washoe, Clark and Nye Counties who have purchased from the state-based exchange will still have two providers to purchase from during the next open enrollment period.The office is in regular contact with the two remaining providers in order to ensure there will continue to be options for the more than 80,000 Nevadans who purchase insurance through the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange.”

In June, the company said that it would be withdrawing from Ohio’s healthcare market, and last week it added that it would quit the individual market in California as well.

Anthem spokesman Jeff Blunt told the Reno-Gazette Journal that the company would still provide with an individual catastrophic medical plan statewide, but that wouldn’t be a part of Obamacare.

His statement said, “A stable insurance market is dependent on products that create value for consumers through the broad spreading of risk and a known set of conditions upon which rates can be developed,” Blunt said. “Today, planning and pricing for ACA-compliant health plans has become increasingly difficult due to a shrinking and deteriorating individual market, as well as continual changes and uncertainty in federal operations, rules and guidance, including cost sharing reduction subsidies and the restoration of taxes on fully insured coverage.”

What we feared about Trump’s rule is becoming a reality now. Let’s hope that the losses remain minimal before the amateur president is impeached or replaced.

Interestingly, minutes after his tweet celebrating Anthem’s withdrawal, he tweeted that he feigns to work on the opioid crisis which we would be an issue we could get behind except that addicts need access to health care/Medicaid in order to obtain treatment.

A twitter user explained the same.

Twitterati reacted to his tweet as follows:


Note to our readers: Please share/tweet our articles. Trump supporting trolls targeted our site’s account and reported it en masse, without cause. This triggered a seemingly automatic suspension. Twitter support has failed to address this issue. Thank you!
