Thank you Mr. President! You continue to blow out of the water the false, empty claim that you only care for the rich…

I’ve never purchased my own health insurance in the US-I’ve been blessed with good health, and I haven’t had the money to afford it. So when our last president (you know who) introduced the “affordable care act” and declared that failure to take part and pay for insurance would incur penalties, I didn’t take part, expecting to pay the penalties which I knew would cost less than the premiums. Early plans by some Democrats were to jail those who didn’t comply. And they accuse Trump of being a fascist! To give President Obama credit, I don’t think he intended to enforce that.

This tax season I found on my tax return a question about whether I had purchased health insurance. Expecting to pay Obama’s penalties, I found instead the following notice:

On January 20, 2017 President Trump signed an executive order called, Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal. This executive order allows you to file a tax return without paying a penalty even if the tax family did not have minimum essential cover-age) or show exemptions from coverage. By law taxpayers without coverage and without an exception are subject to a penalty, but because of this order the IRS allows you to instruct the tax software not to calculate it and not to include it in your return.

Thank you President Trump. You continue to fulfill my expectations-a rare accomplishment for a politician…
