Trump has a Monopoly on One Group of Voters - The Stupid Ones

This One Wants to Repeal ACA to Cut Premium Costs

It is considered bad form to criticize Trump voters for being stupid. But there comments just make not doing so very difficult. Consider this from a WSJ interview with a fellow from Kentucky.

I’m sick of them,” said Matthew Walters, a 58-year-old construction worker who lives in Shelbyville, Ky., and has been eager for the GOP to repeal the Affordable Care Act as his wife’s insurance premiums jump. “They’ve said for six years if we get a Republican in the White House we’re going to get this repealed. What is the problem? What are the excuses? I’m sick of it. We elected Donald Trump for change.”

What on God's green earth would ever make this man think that repealing ACA would make premiums go down? All of the analysis says they go up, just a matter of how much. And without knowing what this gentleman does it is safe to assume that it is likely he is getting some subsidies, which of couorse go away with repeal.

There is no way a non-Trump politician would get this person's vote, nor would any decent pol want it.
