Hey, Donald! You are starting to lose voters!

I just had a talk with a fellow truck driver that was parked next to me at the truck stop here in Utah. He is an independent truck driver, with some pre-existing conditions. He has a family who has medical issues. He found out that the insurance company which he has, will be pulling out of his state, leaving him with only 1 option to get insurance. He will be selling his truck in the next few months and going to work for a company that has insurance. Now, here is the twist! He is a staunch republican and is fuming! He signed up for the ACA when it first started and loved it! But now that is gone! He said that he will never vote for any GOP candidate again! He voted for Trump too! I had to feel bad for him, somewhat. He has owned his own truck for over 25 years. and for it to all come tumbling down, is not right! But than again, he did vote Trump!

1. He got what he voted for.

Now he realizes what he did. Republicans only care when it affects them personally. It makes it hard to have sympathy, but the people who look out for others can use his vote.

6. Yeah, not hearing much tRump chatter on the CB these days.

I started my day in Salina UT, currently waiting to be unloaded in Colton Ca. As soon as that's done I'll have a couple of days home time. If you see my truck come up and say hi.

7. No sympathy whatever

Those folks were warned repeatedly and chose ignorance and hatred instead. Now they want to whine about what they've managed to actually do. Fuuuck them. What they did to themselves, they did to us too.

8. I always figured that the ACA would help small businesses and contractors...

this kind of showcases how they are doing with all of the repeal talk and Repub obstructionism.

The program is working fairly well in blue states that went with the Medicaid expansion. The lion's share of the problems are in red states that fought it tooth and nail and refused to accept the Medicaid expansion because....freedumb.
