So yeah, all those supposedly unhappy Trump voters here in Kentucky who are worried about losing their health care and him not bringing back coal jobs? They'd have voted for Trump again in a heartbeat, knowing what they know now, because in the end America is completely cool with the racist asshole running a country of majority racist assholes.
As I keep saying the problem in this country isn't Trump, it's the people who voted for Trump knowing full well what he is, and especially the 96% of Trump voters who would still vote for him today. They are the problem, and I want not a damn thing to do with them.
So can we formally dispense with trying to "win Trump voters" as Democrats? It's not happening. They're a cult. Let's worry about getting the 47% of people who didn't vote at all interested in saving their country instead.
U.S. Rep. Andy Barr was met with a sea of red at his town hall in Lexington Monday night, but the glow wasn’t from Make America Great Again hats.The overwhelmingly Democratic audience had red and green signs to hold up when the Republican congressman made a comment they either liked or didn’t like — green for agree and red for disagree.As Barr stood and adamantly defended the Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act, he saw a whole lot of red.“I believe that we can do better than what we have now,” Barr said, going through a slideshow on healthcare. “Why? Because the ACA is in a death spiral.”He was then booed for 12 seconds.SNIPThroughout the night Barr was booed, shouted at, heckled and occasionally cheered over the Republican replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act, a bill that was pulled from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in March because it did not have enough Republican support.Each time, Barr defended the bill, highlighting some aspects of the bill he values. It saves the government money, he said. It adds work requirements to become eligible for care, it gives leeway to the states to set their own agendas and, he said, it would increase competition.But most members of the audience didn’t like what they heard.In the 6th Congressional District, a study by the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy found that 69,724 people would lose coverage under the new health care proposal.
