'Let Me Finish My Question': Voter Confronts Trump Over Efforts To Undermine Obamacare


An undecided voter confronted President Donald Trump over his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act during a town hall event on Tuesday, asking how the White House planned to protect those with preexisting conditions while actively fighting to undermine protections already in place. Ellesia Blaque, an assistant professor, pressed Trump during an ABC News town hall with voters in Philadelphia. During a tense moment, Blaque detailed her experience with a lifelong disease that costs her thousands of dollars annually in insurance copayments. President, I was born with a disease called sarcoidosis, and from the day I was born, I was considered uninsurable,” Blaque said. … With copays, I’m still paying almost $7,000 a year in addition to the copay.”The questioning grew tense after Trump interrupted to dispute claims that the ACA, also known as Obamacare, had already protected those with preexisting conditions.
