Flipper-In-Chief: Trump Caves On Obamacare Subsidies To Avoid Government Shutdown

Zero Hedge

After already flipping on funding for the border wall to help avert a government shutdown, The Hill is now reporting that Trump is also willing to cave on Obamacare subsidies.

As we reported earlier this morning, this latest flip-flop comes just hours after Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appeared on CNN and confirmed, among other things, that Obamacare subsidies would be stripped out any spending bill put before a vote.

That rather firm assertion, however, only lasted a couple of hours.  Per The Hill:

The move marks something of a shift for President Trump, who had threatened earlier this month to withhold the subsidies -- known as cost-sharing reductions -- as a way move Democrats to negotiate on a health care overhaul.
