The Low Down More Republicans Come Out Against Trumpcare Published 2 years ago on Mar 15, 2017 By Alyson Chadwick President Trump’s healthcare plan is in clear trouble. Democrats on Capitol Hill and around the country were always going to oppose it, but now Republicans are coming out against it. First, GOP opposition to the American Healthcare Act, or Trumpcare, came from the left but also the right. Now that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its findings on the bill, moderate Republicans have joined in the opposition. Scott Applewhite/Getty Images Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL) went on local television and took to Twitter to voice her feelings about the bill. Republicans who have had people in their districts helped by Obamacare or Medicaid expansion grew even more wary of the president’s plan after reading the CBO estimate. On @CBSMiami: I intend 2 vote no on the #AHCA. This plan will result in less funds 2 help the poor + elderly w their #healthcare in #SoFla pic.twitter.com/4EXHTBRFIf — Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (@RosLehtinen) March 15, 2017 Ros-Lehtinen is not the only Republican who has problems with Trumpcare, as it is in the House of Representatives. Most of the opposition is coming from legislators whose constituents were helped by the Medicaid expansion that was put in place by Obamacare. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R) told reporters, “I would have liked to have seen more flexibility being given to the states.” He also told Chuck Todd of NBC News that he would like to provide more help for people who live at or near the poverty line and not give so much to people making more money. As it stands, Trumpcare does not treat people differently based on their income level.

This American president has been lower than any other president at this point in their term. He was the most popular right when he was inaugurated, when he had an approval rating of 46% (45% disapproval). As of March 14, 2017, his approval rating was at 40% (54% disapproval). The company attributes the low approval rating to his healthcare bill, which has nationwide support of about 24%. UP NEXT Escaped Pet Cobra Terrifies Florida Town...
