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.

WOW: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Caught LYING UNDER OATH about Censorship in Senate Testimony

This is damning.

Published

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is giving testimony to the U.S. Senate today after being subpoenaed over his social media monopoly’s brazen censorship and electoral interference with regards to leaks of Hunter Biden’s embarrassing personal information from the laptop from hell.

Things are not going well for Dorsey, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has pointed out. He noted, ironically in a tweet, that Dorsey lied under oath while giving his testimony on Wednesday.

Dorsey told Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that anyone can now share the Hunter Biden stories from the New York Post on his platform. Individuals on Twitter soon went on Twitter to prove in real time that he was lying.

Other clips from Dorsey’s appearance before the Senate are not much better, as the disheveled tech CEO fluttered in the limelight.

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s aggressive role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference considering the censorship campaign is being perpetrated in large part to help his father’s presidential hopes:

A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.

“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.

“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.

When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”

The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.

“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.

“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.

Dorsey should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath. Big Tech is a bigger threat to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.
