ACA Remains ‘law of the land,’ but Trump Vows to Explode It

Amy Goldstein and Juliet Eilperin – The Washington Post:

In an interview on Friday with The Washington Post, Trump made his inclinations clear: “The best thing politically is to let Obamacare explode.”

The president said that the law remains “totally the property of the Democrats” and that “when people get a 200 percent increase next year or a 100 percent or 70 percent, that’s their fault.”

I can’t think of a better metaphor than Caesar fiddling while Rome burned. I also can’t imagine stone buildings burning, but whatever.

My point: presidents are elected to represent the American electorate at large, not to stand idly by as they suffer. And yet Mr. Trump intends just that.

Petulant boy. How I’ll relish your demise. Not long, now.
