Ellison Says Trump’s Health Plan Keeps Him Up At Night

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He says many of the people he represents will lose access to affordable health care if Obamacare is repealed.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.

    Hey Keith my good liberal – I and millions of others been having the same issue since Obama’s ACA wiped us out. Nothing new to many of us. Nothing at all.

    Now if you and the Lib’s and the Conserve’s really gave a rat’s rear about America you’d actually work together to fix things vs fight about everything. Then again you and your party are legal types who love to argue so …. it is hopeless
