As he does most Sundays while his minders are asleep or at church, President Trump was up early spewing forth on Twitter. His first lies this morning were about healthcare, as he blamed premium increases on Democrats despite the universal acknowledgment from both insurance companies and healthcare analysts that the rises are directly the result of Trump’s own decision to cease the subsidies to insurance companies that help keep rates down.
As usual, the ObamaCare premiums will be up (the Dems own it), but we will Repeal & Replace and have great Healthcare soon after Tax Cuts!

Luckily his disinformation was transparent enough that many of his twitter commentators knew exactly how to reply.
No Sparkie, u own it. U took away subsidies and put the healthcare mkt into a tailspin, w/rising premiums. BTW #MuellerIsComing for YOU!

Trump owns this since he's been sabotaging it since day one!

For a rich man, there's not a lot that you are 'owning'. And you expect everyone else to pay for your decisions.
