|Both numbers are estimates. Would a two million number make the difference between whether this is a good idea or not? |
Whatever Trump does with the ACA doesn't affect me personally, and it probably doesn't affect you either. It DOES affect millions of people (and we can quibble about how many millions there are as if that made a difference) who did not have healthcare before the ACA was enacted and may now have it taken away from them. This concerns me - I am not a liberal or a socialist but I'm also not someone who can say, "I got mine; you're on your own", which seems to be the Republican agenda. Maybe you are that person...
What is wrong, in your mind, with providing health care to those who can't afford it? Is your it preference that they should all die and we'll be done with them?
And again, the people this will primarily affect are in the areas that voted heavily for Trump in 2016. These are the people to whom he PROMISED he would have a better health care package. Once again, he lied - he has no replacement for the ACA. Nothing at all. He said last week that the GOP will become known as the party of healthcare - it may be but not in the way he thinks,
