Trump Tried To Quietly Dismantle Obamacare, House Democrats Stopped Him In His Tracks



If there is one very big policy failure of the White House and administration of President Donald Trump that it is easy to point to as an illustration of just how terrible he is as President of the United States and leader of the free world, it is healthcare. The American healthcare system was revolutionized and updated for the modern age under President Barack Obama when he introduced the incredible Affordable Care Act, which came to be known as Obamacare.

Naturally, Trump hates all of his predecessor’s achievements, so he very publicly made it one of his biggest missions when he took office to try to overhaul Obamacare and replace it with some Republican alternative. As we at Blue Side Nation have taken great pleasure in reporting in the past, he and his cronies failed miserably in their attempts to do this, so Obamacare still stands, despite all the best efforts of the White House.

However, Trump being Trump, he was not going to admit defeat, leave it alone and move on to a different issue. Oh, no. Trump simply decided that if he could not get rid of Obamacare the legitimate and democratic way, then he would just have to try to slowly and quietly take it apart in a much more covert and extremely dodgy way, essentially by making small and frequent changes behind the scenes to slowly but surely undermine Obamacare as a whole.

Thankfully, it looks like his efforts are going to be in vain. Ever since the Democrats won the midterm elections in November of last year and took back control of the House of Representatives from the GOP, they have been in an excellent position to provide true checks and balances on the power and intentions of the President. And led by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, they are doing just that when it comes to healthcare.

The Energy and Commerce Committee has revealed that it is planning to hold hearings to essentially undo several actions taken by the Trump administration which have aimed to undermine existing healthcare law. Quite simply, Trump tried to ruin Obamacare, and the Democrats are swooping in to put a stop to it. This will ensure that Obamacare and the existing, vital legislation and systems in place around healthcare stay exactly as they are, for the sake of the people who rely on them most of all.

These are the true patriots. Not the ones Trump talks about who are ruining the country. Chalk up a big win for democracy, sanity, and the wellbeing of the American people!
