Steve Bannon totally undercuts Trump’s claim about canceling Obamacare payments - The Washington Post



"The White House said it was acting on the recommendation of the Justice Department — that it was canceling illegal federal subsidies that helped sustain the Affordable Care Act. President Trump said what he was doing would hurt the insurance companies only: “That's not going to people; that's making insurance companies rich,” he said, adding: “That money is going to insurance companies to prop up their stock price.”



But former top Trump White House aide Stephen K. Bannon told a very different tale this weekend. And it will confirm what every opponent of the move already suspected: that Trump was trying to cause Obamacare to fail.



In the midst of playing up Trump's accomplishments Saturday at the “Values Voters Summit” in Washington, Bannon turned to Trump's controversial Obamacare executive order the day before.



“Then you had Obamacare,” Bannon said. Trump is “not gonna make the [cost-sharing reduction] payments. Gonna blow that thing up. Gonna blow those exchanges up, right?”



If the underside of the bus outside the White House weren't already so conspicuously crowded, you might say Bannon was tossing his old boss under it."
