    Under the proposed plan, thousands of Georgians who live in rural areas that voted overwhelmingly for Trump – by a whopping 75 to nearly 90 percent in some cases – could lose out on thousands of dollars in tax credits to help them buy health coverage, an analysis by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has found.

    (...)

    Much of that support is driven by widespread disdain for Obamacare. Many see it as an entitlement that often benefits people not willing to pull their own weight.

    You mean, like the ones who were getting the tax credits? "I don't want to have to pay so much because I'm poor, but I don't want those dirty lazy poor people not having to pay"

    I guess when you have a population who thinks that social advantages are good only when they apply to them, it's natural that they'd elect a billionaire who cares only for policies that benefit the rich. Suck it up and pay up buddy, you're in for a long and painful ride. And I'm pretty sure you're still not going to learn the lesson.

    Do we get Obamacare here? I don't think I do, as a matter of fact my age and stuff said that I'd qualify to pay something like $800 a month and have a $10,000 deductible when I used the ACA website. All I know is that there is no way to pay for it, no way to keep it afloat and no way to keep qualified people always involved but being the only "developed" country without healthcare is crazy, but, ACA and GOPCare are both misnomers for insurance reform, it's not about health it's all about paying the insurance companies. If it was about healthcare it'd lump in all healthcare, eyes, teeth, etc.

    For reference, I know taxes could keep it afloat, but I'm no fan of a 50% tax plan for even the rich. Although historically our highest tax rate was 92%.

    “Anything the government gets involved in, it’s going south.”

    This is born and bred into us from South Georgia, for both parties as far as I can tell. It's not so prevalent in Metro Atlanta.

      I remember talking to a Danish guy I met in China several years ago. He told me Americans were horrified that the Danes paid 50% of their income in tax. He told me: "but I don't have to pay for health care, education. That money I get is mine, free and clear, to do with what I want."

      You will not be surprised that, in practice, nobody was paying 92%. Nor was anyone paying the 94% tax rate charged in the darkest days of the Second World War.

    “The way they talked it was supposed to be better,” Peek said.

    ? Isn't it high time you learned that just because people say what you want to hear it doesn't mean they are not full of shit? Especially people who wear a tie on TV. I can't believe this is not a lesson you did not learn in 65 years on this here planet. It also explains how Agent Orange got elected to be POTUS

      Trump didn't say his health plan would gut Medicare either, but guess what?
