According to CNBC, exit polls show that Donald Trump voters will lose big under Trumpcare, also known as Ryancare, should it be signed into law to replace Obamacare.
“Exit polls showed that just 10 percent of Trump’s votes came from Americans earning $200,000 or more. Yet those voters would derive all benefits from the repeal of the two individual tax hikes targeting them: a 0.9 percent tax on their earnings, and a 3.8 percent tax on their investment income,” CNBC reports.
“An even smaller group, the top 1 percent of earners, would receive an average tax cut of $33,000, according to the Tax Policy Center. The top 0.1 percent of earners would receive an average tax cut of $197,000.”
“But half of Trump’s votes came from white voters without college degrees. And those less-affluent voters stand to lose in multiple ways if Congress rolls back Obamacare in favor of the House GOP plan.”
Separately, Trump told Tea Party groups at the White House on Wednesday that if the Trumpcare dies, he will let Obamacare fail and let Democrats take the blame, CNN reports. Um, that’s not how that works, it will be all on the Republican Party.
It’s not just Donald Trump voters who don’t have a college education are going to get hit hard, seniors will too. Let’s not dance around the truth. The Republicans are all about looking out for the fabulously rich.
