Donald Trump made many promises throughout his campaign. Ultimately he gained followers that trusted his promises. One of those promises was to give every American “the best” healthcare coverage at an affordable price and everyone would be covered.
Now people are waking up and realizing those promises are just built up lies to get into the White House.
With the new healthcare law many people in rural America will be effected.
“Times are tough for rural America. School consolidation forces their children to travel outside their city to attend classes. Drought is killing crops and with it a season’s income or more. Now they must contend with the Republican Congress and President Donald Trump, who have crafted a health care plan that will hurt rural America.”
One Georgia farmer, who voted for Trump, believed in his lies. He believed that Trump would things “straightened out.”
Unfortunately for Kenneth Peek he’s just one of millions that fell into Trump’s hole of lies.
According to Alternet, “Peek currently pays $281 a month for his Obamacare policy, which is $3,372 a year. He gets $11,172 in government tax credits, while his wife is on disability. Under Trumpcare his tax credit would drop 64 percent to $7,172 and there’s no real way of knowing how insurance companies will drop premiums or continue the upward climb.”
The thing with Trumpcare is that he will be giving subsidies based on age not based on needs like with Obamacare. So, a 50-year-old CEO who makes $850,000 each year would get the same amount as a 50-year-old teacher who makes $35,000 each year.
“The way they talked, it was supposed to be better,” Peek said.
Around 750,000 Georgians are expected to lose their health insurance under Trumpcare, a Georgia State University revealed. The worst thing is that the state already has the third-highest rate of uninsured in the country. They also didn’t expand Medicaid to ensure coverage for that group of people.
What does this mean? Well, increasing the number of uninsured people to an already strapped hospital system might put more hospitals out of business.
