Obamacare is popular — not just with President Obama’s supporters, but with many of Donald Trump’s as well. And they really don’t want it repealed.
This past week, Senate Republicans narrowly passed through a resolution calling for the repeal of six key components of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). House Republicans have been instructed to bring forward a repeal bill by January 27 — one week after Trump is officially sworn in as president. it appears that President-elect Trump and both houses of Congress are poised to undo Obama’s signature healthcare reform legislation within Trump’s first 100 days as president.
However, some of Trump’s supporters were particularly alarmed about the possibility of losing their health insurance. Their tweets all have a connecting theme of shock and surprise that the coverage they depend on, which was made possible by Obamacare, could be taken away by the man they voted for:
