30 millions people will be affected. I am 100% certain that a sizeable chunk of those affected will be poor white undereducated Americas living in Republican-minded states that collect almost 40% of their state’s revenue from the U.S. Government. It is heartbreaking, cruel and heartless to take away health care, which should be a right in this country. But if you voted for Trump and the GOP, I really have no sympathy for you. You should have seen this coming.

"By 1:25 AM Thursday morning, Senate Republicans defeated every single Democratic amendment, and passed a budget resolution that will allow them to pull the plug on Obamacare. The vote was 51-48. Because Republicans are claiming this is a budget resolution, only a simple majority was needed.

Despite promises from leading Republicans, including President-elect Donald Trump, gone will be the ability for parents to keep their children on their health insurance until age 26, gone will be the ban on insurance companies refusing to pay for pre-existing conditions — including pregnancy, cancer, HIV, and diabetes, gone will be the mandate that insurers must pay for contraception coverage. Democrats filed amendments to save them all, all were defeated."
