I Hate Donald Trump, But He’s Right — Obamacare Is A MESS

The system is broken.

I never thought I’d see the day that I would share an opinion with Donald Trump.

I’m a lower-class, liberal woman, who is so liberal it would make Bernie Sanders blush.

But when it comes to how out country deals with health care, I’m with Trump:

The system is broken.

Obamacare doesn’t work.

That said, at least Obama made CHANGE.

He tried something huge, and it had good points and bad points.

But he tried. 

Right now, all of the talk about repealing and replacing the ACA sounds like either passing the buck or patching a sinking ship.

We need a revolution, not half-assed maintenance that serves just one party’s agenda. 

I have a job, but I cannot afford the healthcare that job offers AND paying my rent.

That’s just how it is.

Between the cost of housing, student loan debt, and groceries, my paycheck is gone.

Because I’m eligible for work insurance, I’m not eligible for Obamacare.

It actually SAVES me money to pay the tax penalty every year for NOT having insurance, instead of paying out the nose for insurance that often doesn’t cover everything. 

High deductibles are killing people like me.

But that’s the extent to which Donald Trump and I agree.

See, he thinks we should “get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something terrific”, and since I’m poor and have a chronic health problem, I need specifics on what that plan of his might be.
