MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Rep. Keith Ellison is speaking out against President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
Ellison held a press conference Monday with some of his constituents, expressing concern about Trump’s budget cuts — from housing to the arts.
He says many of the people he represents will lose access to affordable health care if Obamacare is repealed.
“One of the things that keeps me up at night is the fear that constituents are just lying awake wondering how they’re going to meet their health care needs,” he said.
The GOP’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare is up for a vote Thursday.
