Obamacare in Trump Country

thumbpost-0

At Sunday’s meeting with Stephen J Natoli, talking about his journey from Conservatism to Liberalism, one clubmember asked the question – why do voters vote against their own self-interest? Why did poor white voters, who gained access to health insurance under a Democratic administration, vote for Trump who promised to repeal their healthcare?

This short Vox video doesn’t provide an answer, but should give comfort to Las Vegas casino owners.

Form Vox’s description:

We travel to Whitley County in Kentucky to find out why people who benefited most from Obamacare would vote for Donald Trump. Some thought that Trump would not actually repeal Obamacare. Others felt that Obamacare wasn’t affordable.
