Not content with putting us through the heart-stopping fear and anxiety that our health insurance will become unaffordable or nonexistent, Trump ‘n GOP have also been trying every which evil way to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, including:
- They shortened the 2018 Obamacare enrollment period from 3 months to 6 weeks; sign up begins November 1 and ends December 15, 2017;
- They reduced by 90% the advertising funds to let people know about the deadlines;
- Spending on the Navigator system, in-person enrollment assistance, is set to be cut by 41% from 2016 levels.
