Trump will be taking away healthcare from 8000 of his Nevada voters in his crusade against Obamacare.
8000 Americans from Nevada counties won by Trump will no longer be provided healthcare all because Donald Trump doesn’t like the former President of the United States.
According to Heather Korbulic, director of the Silver State Health Exchange, “Federal instability over cost-sharing and the elimination of the individual mandate has created a very unstable market. Today we are seeing the result of this instability.”
While Nevada’s Republican Senator Dean Heller support’s Trump’s efforts to force Obamacare to fail, his counterpart, Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Mastro, is holding Trump responsible:
“Rural Nevadans struggle the most when it comes to access to affordable healthcare, and it is disappointing that President Trump’s reckless actions have led Anthem to reach a decision that will give Nevadans far fewer options for healthcare coverage that works for them.”
Trump already forced insurance companies in Ohio to have to pull out of the Healthcare marketplace by doing the same exact thing—withholding subsidies. Those insurance companies also blamed Trump’s decision, but that doesn’t help the 70,000 Hoosiers in Vice President Mike Pence’s home state.
Trump has even suggested to congress that Obamacare could simply be repealed and replaced at a later date, or not replaced at all. Either way, those in desperate need of affordable healthcare won’t get it soon enough. It seems President Trump is more concerned with showing Obama he failed than the welfare of the American people.
