We’re not sure what Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, thought would happen when Donald Trump got into power. Most of us saw this coming a mile away. Trump has elevated Republicans and now, the repeal of Obamacare will affect Trump supporters the most. But you know, if Obamacare hadn’t been watered down then everyone would be happy but tea partiers wanted none of that socialism in America. The House Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare didn’t go down well with Marin because she said that it will increase health insurance costs even further.
No kidding, Jennifer, tell us more.
“If it passes the way it is presented right now, the hardworking taxpayers of this country will be forgotten once again,” Martin told CNN’s “New Day” just after noting that Trumpcare will prompt health insurance prices to “skyrocket.”
She said that she’s been receiving hundreds of emails from fellow Tea Party members, and added that the majority are expressing concerns about the bill.
“People are reminding me that we’ve stood in the snow, in the rain, in the hot summer heat again and again and again to oppose Obamacare, to work to get it repealed and to stand for health care freedom, Marin said. “What we’re seeing out of the House of Representatives is not what we expected when we voted for majorities in the House and Senate, who promised us they would repeal Obamacare.”

Repealing Obamacare will only further help insurance companies, not low-income families. Repealing Obamacare in its entirety means we’ll have to deal with pre-existing conditions driving insurance coverage costs up for most Americans. Or, alternatively, just become uninsured again. Still yet, according to the tea party group’s Facebook page, that’s what they want; a full repeal. In its entirety.
Talking Points Memo reports:
Martin was among the conservatives who met with President Donald Trump and his staff on Wednesday night to discuss concerns about the legislation unveiled by House leaders this week. She said that Trump listened to their concerns and said that they could be addressed in phase three of the process — after the initial repeal bill is passed.
WHEW! Well if there’s a phase three to this awful bill which has been slammed by conservatives, liberals and hospitals, then we all feel much better.
Aaaand House Republicans have no idea how they’ll pay for Trumpcare.
