CORBIN, Kentucky — Kathy Oller is so committed to her job signing up fellow Kentuckians for Obamacare that last Halloween, she dressed up as a cat, set up a booth at a trick-or-treat event, and urged people to get on the rolls. She’s enrolled so many people in the past three years that she long ago lost count.

“Must be somewhere in the thousands,” she said to me one morning at a local buffet restaurant where she’d just finished an enrollment event with the staff.

The health care law has helped lots of people in Whitley County, where Oller works. The uninsured rate has fallen from 25 percent in 2013 to 10 percent today, according to data from the nonprofit Enroll America. Overall, Kentucky is now tied with West Virginia for the biggest increase in health coverage.


...


Oller voted for Trump too.

“I found with Trump, he says a lot of stuff,” she said. “I just think all politicians promise you everything and then we’ll see. It’s like when you get married — ‘Oh, honey, I won’t do this, oh, honey, I won’t do that.’”

I spent last week in southeastern Kentucky talking to Obamacare enrollees, all of whom supported Trump in the election, trying to understand how the health care law factored into their decisions.


...


The political reality in Washington, however, looks much different: Republicans are dead set on repealing the Affordable Care Act. The plans they have proposed so far would leave millions of people without insurance and make it harder for sicker, older Americans to access coverage. No version of a Republican plan would keep the Medicaid expansion as Obamacare envisions it.

The question is not whether Republicans will end coverage for millions. It is when they will do it. Oller’s three years of work could very much be undone over the next three years.

In southeastern Kentucky, that idea didn’t seem to penetrate at all — not to Oller, and not to the people she signed up for coverage.

“We all need it,” Oller told me when I asked about the fact that Trump and congressional Republicans had promised Obamacare repeal. “You can’t get rid of it.”

Just gonna leave this here.

an old timey phrase comes to mind, 'twas ever thus..'

basically that sh!t has been happening forever, and it's going to keep on happening..

if things change one day I'll gladly admit I was wrong, as we'll all be better off.

So you're saying you prefer to vote Republican even if their states have the highest rate of crime and violence, the highest murder rates, the highest rate of welfare and federal aid dependency, the lowest in education, and the worst health? If ignorance is bliss you must have reached a Buddhist's state of nirvana.
Considering the fact that this isn't true, I feel no need to answer it. Enjoy your mythical lies.

Because I knew why he posted it. Even if it wasn't for that reason, what difference does it make?

at the time, slapping that post of Trump's words seemed like cognitive dissonance to me... but as you were.

It’s expensive to go to the E.R., so maybe wait a day to bring your kid with a broken arm to the doctor, says Rep. Bill Huizenga.

good luck

She basically just said a bunch of nothing and gave no real reason why she voted for Trump. It's unbelievable how stupid Trump supporters are...

The best part is when Republicans act like their states aren't the welfare states in this country.

They wanna kick out states like California without realizing how much money they contribute to keeping their hillbilly a*s states afloat

I lold first, then I smfh.
This is Onion-esque until you see the video of Huizenga talking about it.
Sure, save a few bucks, your son's medical condition can wait..
and people really think these guys give a fck about them and their families.
