For months, ObamaCare defenders have dominated the debate by trotting out people who would supposedly be harmed by the GOP replacement plan. President Trump tried to turn the tables on Monday by highlighting the very real pain ObamaCare is causing millions of middle class families. Too bad the Senate didn’t catch on.
During his remarks, which came on the eve of the make-or-break Senate votes, in which he challenged the Senate to live up to seven years’ worth of promises to repeal and replace ObamaCare, Trump spent much of his time showcasing victims of ObamaCare.
“Democrats promised Melissa Acerson that her son’s pre-existing conditions would be covered,” Trump said. “The Acerson’s quickly learned that ObamaCare’s promise of covering for pre-existing conditions was meaningless, for the doctors you need to care for you aren’t on your plan.”
Others on the dais with Trump found their premiums skyrocketing, their choice of plans reduced to one — and possibly none next year — or were forced to repeatedly switch plans as insurers dropped out of the ObamaCare exchange.
