Jim, do you remember when Obama paid Obamacare subsidies without Congressional authorization?

Let me refresh your recollection:

- Cost Sharing Reeuction (CSR) payments are additional subsidies for people with income below 250% of the FPL. These payments effectively make plans more generous by reducing deductibles, cost-sharing amounts, and out-of-pocket limits.
- Congress did not appropriate any money for CSR subsidies after a certain period of time
- Obama did not call a National Emergency
- He simply paid the CSR subsidies anyway

Not one of you complained when Obama spent money without authorization. However, you now complain that Trump might declare a NE and build the wall. I know you are going to respond with words like Trumpenkrieger, Bot, Fucking Asshole, etc., but let me put it to you straight: you have no guiding principles other than Orange Man Bad.
