It what can only be seen as a situation where you want to feel bad for a person, but really don’t, one supporter of repealing Obamacare just learned the hard way that they’re against their own healthcare.

All names have been blacked out, so pardon the anonymity. However, Helen Kennedy from Twitter seemed to get her hands on the really sad conversation.

It began with a post on Facebook from this someone who is against “Obamacare” and posted the vote and said:

“One step closer to fixing this mistake, and only a couple weeks left of Barry’s regime. 2017 is already looking up.”

This is when it gets sad. Someone pointed out that repealing the Affordable Care Act will strip health aid from those who desperately need it. This is when the person responds:

“… First we’re talking about Obamacare, not the ACA. Secondly, my health insurance is through the ACA, so I’m definitely not the kind of person to look down on others for needing help…”

This is when someone points out to this person that they’re on Obamacare, which is just another name for the Affordable Care Act.

This original posters replies:

“I’m not on Obamacare. My health insurance is through the ACA (Affordable Care Act), which was what they had to come up with after Obamacare crashed and burned as bad as it did. So I’m gonna be fine.”

Then response after response came in explaining that they are, in fact, the same thing. And as of the screengrab, the original poster hadn’t responded.

Here’s the tweet:

This makes you wonder how many people out there really don’t know that Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act are the same thing. And it’s actually kind of sad. They’ve been spoon fed lies by Republicans to hate the very thing they are now reliant on just by calling it another name that associates it with Obama. Which, by the way, is the only reason they want the repeal, so Obama doesn’t have the legislative victory.

This poor person. Hopefully, they change their stance sooner rather than later, but it seems their entire world has been rocked.

Trump ‘Not Even A Little’ Concerned That GOP Has No O’care Replacement Plan

TPM LIVEWIRE

Donald Trump said Monday that he was “not even a little bit” concerned that congressional Republicans have yet to put forth a replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act, even as they move forward with steps to repeal it.

“That’s going to all work out,” the President-elect told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower.

Senate and House Republicans have started ringing alarm bells about the party’s long-stated plan to move forward with a prompt repeal of the healthcare law. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Susan Collins (R-ME) are among those calling for a replacement plan to be prepared before repeal is enacted to avoid throwing the insurance industry into chaos.

Asked Monday if a replacement plan would be ready by the time Obamacare is repealed, Trump said, “We’ll be talking about it on Wednesday.”

The President-elect is scheduled to hold his first press conference since July in Manhattan on Jan. 11. He is expected to address his plans for the Trump Organization and the role his son-in-law Jared Kushner will play in his administration, as well as Obamacare repeal.

Donald Trump disgusted thousands of Americans when he mocked the disabled man. Meryl Streep was definitely one of them, and she was able to put into words what many of us were feeling, destroying Trump last night at the Golden Globes:

“An actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like,” she said. “And there were many, many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that – breathtaking, compassionate work. There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good – there was nothing good about it – but it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter: someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t a movie – it was real life.”

Donald Trump’s response was predictable, he threw a fit on Twitter:

First off, Meryl Streep has won more than a handful of awards, including three academy awards, which she’s had 19 nominations for.

“Hillary flunky who lost big.” Well Donald, for the 100th time, you lost the popular vote by the biggest margin EVER.

Donald Trump definitely did make fun of the reporter, there’s even video evidence.

The sad part is, Donald Trump is going to be our president, but he still acts like a child, blasting his “problems” all over social media. On some of his tweets, even his supporters call him out for continuing to bash on Hillary despite the fact he’s already been elected. He uses the social media site to make fun of people who don’t support him, and Stephen King got sick of it and then continued to successfully destroy Trump at his own game:

Stephen was 100% correct too, and 65 million Americans know it, but sadly he’s still going to be our president.
