A West Virginia woman who voted for President Trump in 2016 told an MSNBC reporter this week that she is concerned about the Trump administration’s continued efforts to kill the Affordable Care Act.
Margaret Grassie said that “it would be disastrous for me” if the Obama-era health care law was overturned without any kind of replacement ready to take over.
“My prescriptions each month are about $800,” she said. “The health care that I get here is amazing. The quality is great here, but if you take Obamacare away, it’s not just going to affect me, it’s going to affect thousands in West Virginia — thousands!”
Asked if she had a message for President Trump and lawmakers in Washington, Grassie said: “This is healthcare, it’s not politics. It’s not about being the democrat or republican or independent. You’ve got to come together to get this healthcare system in the United States right.”
Asked if health care would determine her vote in 2020, Grassie said: “Absolutely!”
