    No surprise there.

    Will President Trump step up and protect his supporters?

    The House Republican effort to overhaul the Affordable Care Act could hit many rural areas particularly hard, according to a new analysis, sharply increasing the cost for some residents buying their own insurance. ...

    Of the 100 counties where a 62-year-old making three times the federal poverty level—generally around $36,000—would see the biggest jump in annual costs for a plan under the Republican blueprint, 97 were rural. “It is disproportionately affecting the rural,” said Dianna Welch, an actuary at Oliver Wyman.

    The dynamic may present a political challenge for Republicans, because many rural regions strongly supported President Donald Trump. ...​

    The fact is that any middle class 62 year old on Obama care used to be able to buy a good used car with what he is now responsible for in the Obamacare deductible insurance scam. Obamacare is freaking imploding and all we see is propaganda from democrats who never even read the freaking bill before they voted for it.

    I know the gut reaction is to say they deserve what they get...

    Saying that means that 80 year old woman whose life savings gets wiped out in a con "deserves it".

    Nobody deserves to be grifted.
