Jun 16, 2024 ~ "I voted for this shit." Obama voter reveals how he finally figured out that the Democrats have been lying to him all along. "I voted for Obama/Biden in 2008 based on Obamacare." "Everything that they said was not true... Insurance premiums went up instead of down..." His insurance that he had through 2 bouts of cancer ($185 a month with $1000 deductible) was cancelled because Obamacare said it wasn't good enough. They could no longer offer it. After that, the cheapest insurance he could find was $1200 a month with a $6000 deductible. He could not afford to get insurance and keep a roof over his kids' heads. But then for 10 years he had to pay a penalty for not having health insurance. Thanks to Obamacare, he could not afford health insurance anymore and thanks to Obamacare, he had to pay a penalty for the privilege of no longer being able to afford health insurance. "I voted for that shit and it did nothing but hurt me and my family." He wasn't able to do his post-cancer followups. He couldn't keep his plan or his doctor and he had to pay penalties. "Insurance was through the roof. It literally killed the middle class... Obamacare was 100% supported by Democrats and 100% voted against by Republicans. That reason right there alone is why I left the Democratic party." "I also looked at when Trump got elected, I got a tax cut. My employer got a tax cut. My employer then gave all 3000 employees raises and raised the minimum wage to $15 an hour. And I noticed Nancy Pelosi said its just crumbs if anyone got anything out of it. No, I got a $3 an hour raise back in 2017. That was not crumbs. I noticed other companies started giving bonuses, better benefits, better benefits, raises, etc. And I noticed who voted on that. 100% Republicans, not a single Democrat. So we had Republicans wanting me to have more of my money and the Democrats did not want me to have more of my money." "There are people who Obamacare helped... but the majority of Americans, they got it stuck to them." Then he went into how everything was so much more affordable under Trump. "Vote wisely."
