During the final round of negotiations Trump committed to using that money to offset costs of insuring people with preexisting conditions.

House freedom caucus felt shifting the money from offsetting cost of insurance for poor to offsetting cost of covering persons with preexisting conditions was more conservative.

In their defense, it seems to favor offsetting costs of preexisting helps people that are working, find themselves between jobs, when they get new insurance they have a existing condition, this helps them get coverage.

You post a lot of crap that you don't back up with credible sources.

I don't know where you got the CSR funding coming from a Medicare rebate/kickback scheme. Senate reporting is CSR being paid from same acct as premium tax credits - https://www.rpc.senate.gov/policy-papers/court-strikes-down-obamacare-payments.

When Congress declined to appropriate money for the section 1402 payments, the administration changed its interpretation of the law. In an attempt to save Obamacare, Treasury began paying the cost-sharing reductions of section 1402 to insurers out of the permanent appropriation for Section 1401.

I followed the AHCA bill much closer than you did, so I'm well aware of the last $8B kicked in for people that needed help paying higher premiums due to pre-existing conditions. Your article doesn't back your claim of the $8B coming from CSR funding. My belief is it's coming out of the original $337B savings like all the other spending increases.

Savings, kicked back, same thing.  Coming from existing slush within the Medicare system.  Obama admin turned everything into slush and then used the slush how they wanted.

Latest, 5/11.  Trump pulled a fast one on the dems.  In the year-end spending bill passed last month that funded the government.  Dems were hoping to include CSR in that spending bill.  Before the bill finalized, Trump agreed to pay the CSR payments, so they were dropped from the year-end spending bill.  Turns out,that puts it all back in Trumps hands to decide if and when CSR payments go out.

There is another article that definitely stated that the CSR payments was the source for the $8B, which in the house bill, was being put to defraying the costs of insuring people with pre existing conditions.

It's cute how DuwAy thinks Obama raised money to pay CSRs. lol

Readers note DuwAy still hasn't provided supporting material for either of his claims.

Pretty much could have stopped your post here. Throw in a little contradiction and unabashed Trump loving and it pretty much sums up his time here.
