    Trump administration urges Supreme Court to end Obamacare despite the pandemic - and its legal brief makes no mention of coronavirus
    • In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to overturn the Affordable Care Act
    • Some 20 million Americans could lose their health coverage and protections for people with preexisting health conditions
    • In the case before the Supreme Court, Texas and other conservative-led states argue that the ACA was essentially rendered unconstitutional
    • It came after Congress passed tax legislation in 2017 that eliminated the law's unpopular fines for not having health insurance
    • The Trump administration said 500,000 people who lost insurance during economic shutdown have gotten coverage through HealthCare.gov
    • But the administration's legal brief makes no mention of the virus

    An estimated 27 million people may have lost job-based coverage due to layoffs, and it's unclear what - if anything - they're turning to as a fallback.

    Street begging, that's what their fallback is.

    As long as he supports abolishing abortion, this is perfectly acceptable.

    Anyone that supports that Trump administration when 125,000 Americans lost their life with no end is sight is pro-death. Pure and simple.

    It's an embarrassment really. They all need to be shamed.

    And they "remain big fans of Donald Trump."

    That was sickening.

    I might agree with you but I believe there are some, even in here, who certainly don't look at it that way.

    Somewhat along your line of thought I was thinking that maybe I should wish for him to get Obama Care destroyed. Perhaps that's the only way for people to realize just how evil he is. It's gonna take the deaths of an awful lot of people before a lot of people are going to realize how mesmerized they've been by Trump and his Svengali like effect.

    Some people won't realize it. But, many already have

    Eliminate it and the chickens will come home to roost. Not that it matters much since Trump is already going to lose in a landslide.
