BACKFIRE Pelosi’s Health Care Tweet Gets Unintended Response
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) tweeted out a question late on Monday about people's experiences with Obamacare but did not get the response she was looking for.
Last week Republicans released their new health care plan intended to replaced the Affordable Care Act. Democrats have been gearing up to fight back against the new plan and plan to make health care a 2018 mid-term election issue.
Pelosi tweeted out a link to the White House website, asking her followers to share their experience with the Affordable Care Act.
Pelosi wanted feedback on why Democrats must protect Obamacare, but she did not get the answers she was looking for.
Users aired their grievances about the rising cost of health care.
Others just simply expressed how the Affordable Health Care Act is "not working."
The Republican bill intending to replace Obamacare, the American Health Care Act, would reduce the federal deficit by $337 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
