Trump declares Obamacare payments illegal; deals second blow to health law

This is another blow to dismantle one of the worst laws passed by a Democrat-Only vote. 
ObamaCare never worked and any argument to the contrary is pure Liberal propaganda. 

Washington Times reports the Trump administration announced late Thursday that it has concluded it can no longer legally make critical Obamacare “cost-sharing” payments and will cut them off, dealing another blow to the struggling 2010 health law.
