Speaker Paul D. Ryan Jr. (R.-Wis.) voiced his support late Thursday of President Donald J. Trump’s decision same day to suspend direct payments to private insurance companies begun under the previous administration to buttress their participation the federalized health care system.
“Today’s decision by the Trump administration to end the appeal of that ruling preserves a monumental affirmation of Congress’s authority and the separation of powers,” the speaker said.
The Democrats ObamaCare is imploding. Massive subsidy payments to their pet insurance companies has stopped. Dems should call me to fix!

The payments were part of President Barack Obama’s program to support the insurance programs created by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.
The Cost Sharing Reduction payments were expected to reach $10 billion in fthe fiscal year2018 and add nearly $200 billion to the federal government debt by fiscal year 2026, according a Congressional Budget Office report published in August.
Ryan has long criticized the payments that were never appropriated by Congress.
“Under our Constitution, the power of the purse belongs to Congress, not the executive branch,” the speaker said.
“It was in defense of this foundational principle that the House, under the leadership of former speaker John Boehner, voted in 2014 to challenge the constitutionality of spending by the Obama administration that was never approved by Congress,” he said. “The House was validated last year when a federal court ruled that the Obama administration had indeed been making unauthorized and therefore illegal payments through Obamacare.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Comes Out in Favor of ‘Awesome, Incredible, Beautiful and Wonderful’ Trans Children
AOC at her dumbest and most dangerous.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come out explicitly in favor of transgender children and denigrated Republicans for being concerned about children being abused by child-grooming enthusiasts.
“Trans kids are awesome, incredible, beautiful, and wonderful. Bigotry is not,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet.
“Republicans need to stop obsessing over other people’s gender identity bc frankly it’s very weird and they’re doing a lot of harm to children who are just trying to be themselves,” she added, finishing her inane post with the hashtag #LetThemPlay.
A screenshot of the tweet can be seen here:
While dullards like Ocasio-Cortez may believe that transgender children are merely expressing themselves, the fact of the matter is that children are being indoctrinated and recruited into a dangerous lifestyle by degenerates.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on how the transgender community is abusing children, with footage from HBO’s Transhood documentary series illustrating the depravity of this movement:
A new HBO television show “Transhood” is demonstrating the inner workings of the youth LGBT movement and the depths of their depravity and perversion.
One clip features a butch lesbianic woman and her “daughter” Avery, and it shows exactly how children are being systemically abused by pederasts.
“We actually go and meet with our senators and our representatives, and after that, we go and sit and sell some of Avery’s books for a little while,” the ghoulish woman said of her daughter who she uses as a political prop.
This is when Avery expressed the sentiment that she does not want to be exploited for the pleasure of reprobates.
“I just don’t want to even have a book. I’ve done too much in this world. It’s ruined my life enough and now, everyone in this world is going to know if I sell my book, it’s going to get on the news along with me for like the 50th time at this point, and it’s going to make my life worse,” Avery said.
“A couple of years ago, you wanted people to know,” the “mother” responded.
“Yeah, I did, but I know that was a stupid, silly mistake and now I don’t,” Avery said…
Avery’s words show how transgender children can be pushed into that lifestyle by outside forces and then come to regret their actions after they mature.
Any nation, civilization or people that will accept their children being victimized by predators on a widespread scale does not deserve to exist. The idiocy of AOC and other “empowered women” could result in a new dark age.
