Gage Skidmore (

(Political Satire) (WASHINGTON, May 3, 2017) President Trump today pledged $17.16, the loose change he was carrying, including a few ones and a five, into the subsidy for high risk pools that states will need in order to avoid bankrupting people with pre-existing conditions under the new bill the GOP is proposing to repeal the ACA..

Along with the additional $8 billion dollars over five years that the GOP are throwing in, experts predicted the repeal of Obamacare was sure to pass the House.

But healthcare experts have warned that the actual amount needed to sure up high risk pools is $37 billion dollars a year.  When Trump threw in his pocket change, however, that was enough for undecided Republicans to support the bill.

“It shows the President really has some skin in the game,” said a spokesman for the GOP.

Reaction among voters was immediate.

“This bill is everything I ever dreamed of, and more, ” said absolutely no one in America who has a pre-existing condition.
