NOT GOOD: How the Trump administration is spending millions to shore up Obamacare

This isn't letting it IMPLODE! And this is giving those A-HOLES that wouldn't vote for repeal exactly what they wanted. More taxpayer dollars to flush down the toilet:
The efforts come as the president has threatened to cut off key subsidies and GOP repeal efforts are in disarray
President Donald Trump has threatened to blow up Obamacare. But his own administration is separately dangling hundreds of millions of dollars before states to bail out their insurance markets.
Alaska will get $323 million over the next five years to coax its lone Obamacare insurer to remain in the market and hold down premiums. At least four other states, including some that have vociferously opposed the Affordable Care Act, are seeking similar deals.
The efforts come as the GOP push to repeal and replace the law is in disarray and state officials in both red and blue states seek ways to shore up their shaky markets. They have the blessing of the Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services — even as the president himself is threatening to cut off key subsidies as early as this week. That move could send premiums skyrocketing and potentially collapse insurance markets nationwide.
The White House said Thursday it applauds the stabilization efforts even as Trump steps up the pressure on the Senate to resume efforts to try to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.
