Donald-Trump-Obamacare-FeesA federal court in California has struck down an emergency motion that would have forced the Trump administration to continue making ObamaCare subsidy payments to insurers.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria denied the motion for an injunction, saying that he was skeptical that cutting off the payments known as cost-sharing reductions (CSR) would cause an immediate injury to residents of the state.

He noted many states, including California, saw “the writing on the wall” and took actions to mitigate any potential harm if the payments were ended.

“To be sure, the absence of money for CSR payments does not seem to be causing health care reform to come crumbling down,” Chhabria wrote in his ruling.

    I was not aware that some judges in california are actually men with balls

  • Pete says:

    The judge didn’t like the idea of being slapped down by the the Supreme Court should it get that far. The 9th circuit likely would have upheld his intervention but it wouldn’t have been constitutional and he knew it.
    Even a consummate dunderhead (not that this judge is one) gets tired of being reminded that he is one.
