fter Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald J. Trump failed to convince enough fellow Republicans to advance what many conservatives saw as an Obamacare ‘repeal’ measure that was long on style and far too short on substance, both vowed to let the law “implode,” though Trump has repeatedly said he didn’t want to harm Americans in that way.

However, doing so also allows a potentially unconstitutional program to live on, The Daily Caller reported.

Before he left Congress, then-House Speaker John Boehner and Republicans in the House filed a lawsuit against the Obama regime in 2014, alleging that the government was illegally reimbursing health insurers still in the marketplace for a little-known provision of the Affordable Care Act: Cost-sharing reductions, or CSRs.

The Daily Caller noted further:

Insurers are required under the current system to provide CSRs to low and moderate income individuals who participate in the exchanges. To make consumers put more “skin in the game,” Obamacare effectively raised deductibles to levels that are tough for many Americans to meet without some financial support. CSRs were instituted to help insurers with the costs of the deductibles patients can’t otherwise meet.
