It is an act of violence to suspend health insurance subsidies to poor people who are covered by Affordable Care Act policies. Mr. Trump’s action sets the course for much higher premiums, making policies unaffordable for lower-income citizens and destabilizing the ACA exchange market.
This is an old political trick: when a party cannot eliminate a program, they de-fund and starve it to death. The tragedy in Trump’s act is that people’s health is at the extreme end of his action. The ACA will not be the only thing to die.
