“Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.”

 

(sigh) Yes, this is the second time I've used the same headline and clip.

According to The Hill, just moments ago:

WH to Dems: We’ll continue paying ObamaCare subsidies

The Trump administration has told Democrats it will continue paying controversial ObamaCare insurer subsidies, lowering fears that a fight over the issue could cause a government shutdown.

The move marks something of a shift for President Trump, who had threatened earlier this month to withhold the subsidies, known as cost-sharing reductions, as a way to move Democrats to negotiate on a healthcare overhaul.

"A shift"? He shifts so often he should be in the next Fast & Furious movie.

Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-Calif.), for one, said Wednesday that he doesn’t trust the president enough to take him at his word.

You don't say.

“He has flip-flopped on almost every single statement, every single sentence, every single tweet. Personally, I do not trust anything he says,” Cardenas said.

“I would like to see it in writing; I’d love to see it done through legislation.”

Trump caves so often he should be battling hobbits in the Misty Mountains.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to hear this, but it does absolutely nothing to reassure the insurance carriers who are growing increasingly (and understandably) antsy about the lack of clarity regarding the CSR issue.

(sigh) Anyway, visit this entry next month. And the month after that...and after that...
