Republicans and Donald Trump are becoming increasingly unpopular, even with their own voters.
Earlier this week, Senate Republicans voted in favor of a resolution that calls for the repeal of six key components of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Republicans have been waiting years for a chance to repeal Obamacare, yet now that they have it they are moving forward without having anything to replace it with.
Not surprisingly, many are afraid of losing their health insurance. What may be a surprise is that many of these people are actual Trump supporters. These people took to twitter to speak out against the repeal of the popular health care law:
@realDonaldTrump how can you get rid of ACA without any replacement? I voted for you and have expensive preexisting conditions.

@realDonaldTrump You d-bag. Your making America great again by killing affordable healthcare? Regretting that I voted for you already.

Donald Trump was very outspoken during his campaign on the Affordable Care Act, publicly promising to repeal Obamacare altogether, so it isn’t clear why so many of his supporters are surprised.
It still isn’t straightforward as to what the Republicans can actually do to Obamacare without some support from the Democrats. To read a full analysis of the situation, click here.
