"Nice economy you have there;" Tweets to Paul Krugman on the CSR default and NAFTA

The cut off of the ACA CSR payments are a well-considered extortionist tactic, not random spite. If Trump keeps badmouthing the Exchanges people will stay away, with who knows what effect on profitability.

You worry about NAFTA, I worry about payments on the national debt. When he was a crooked developer in New York City, his policy was never to make the last payment. That is what he has done with the CSR payments. He may wait to the worst possible moment, then default on the national debt.

Nice economy you have there. Be a shame if anything happened to it.

Well, we aren't yet. And the strength of the opposition is impressive. So, maybe. But if we don't win back some seats in 2018, we are going to be in trouble. We have to fight for unity on the opposition side and so far I'm not seeing it.
