Some Trump supporters are waking up to the fact that repealing “Obamacare” means they’re going to lose their health insurance.
The Business Standard News reached out to a Trump voter who was upset that Trump and the Republicans had moved forward with repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA,) also known as Obamacare.
“I thought that Obamacare was different from the Affordable Care Act,” said Waylon Harrison, a Trump supporters from Mobile, Ala. in an email. “Now I’m going to lose my health insurance. Trump was supposed to deport the Mexicans, bring the jobs back and lock up the Black Lives Matter terrorists. I didn’t think he was going to screw over, us blue-collar, white folks.”
Many Trump supporters are having buyer’s remorse now they realize Republicans are going ahead with plans to repeal the ACA. The Washington Post recently published an article about Kentucky coal miners who are regretting voting for Trump. The ACA includes coverage for black lung disease.
The website GOP Apocalypse has posted the Twitter comments of Trump supporters who are enraged at the GOP’s actions.
@realDonaldTrump You d-bag. Your making America great again by killing affordable healthcare? Regretting that I voted for you already.

According to a Huffington Post article by Jennifer R. Farmer, 59 million Americans stand to lose their health insurance if the ACA is repealed.
