The Republicans, led by Donald Trump, want you to die. (vote them out in November, if you are still alive)

Trump admin will not reopen Obamacare exchanges during coronavirus pandemic
[www.nbcnews.com]

The White House will not reopen the Obamacare exchanges to allow uninsured Americans to purchase health care coverage during the coronavirus pandemic, NBC News has confirmed.

Last month, President Donald Trump signaled that he was considering a special enrollment period that would reopen federal insurance exchanges, which shuttered in December after the end of the annual open enrollment period.

"It's something we're talking to a lot of people about. We'll see what happens," Trump said in March.

The news that the Obamacare will not be reopened was first reported by Politico.

In March, the Affordable Care Act turned 10 years old and currently enjoys its highest popularity ever, according to NBC News. When the healthcare law was passed in 2010, 36 percent thought it was a "good idea"; today, 42 percent do.

While the federal exchanges will remain shuttered, individual states like New York and California have reopened their state exchanges for special enrollment periods to address the unprecedented public health crisis.

Congress could have taken care of this in that big bill they just did, but decided to defer to federal officials.

People who lose coverage due to job loss can still use the marketplaces. They just have to prove that they lost coverage.

It's despicable that he's not doing everything he can to ensure folks have insurance. I'm just wondering why Congress didn't take care of this. Maybe they will revisit it.
