After Charla McCormick‘s son lost his job, a “blessing from God” came in the form of her son’s insurance premium dropping from $567 a month to $88. But as the Washington Post reports, according to McCormick it wasn’t just God who bestowed this blessing, it was also her beloved President Donald Trump.
But the 52-year-old is sorely mistaken. The drop in price is a result of a feature from former President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, not tax credits from the GOP’s healthcare plan, which hasn’t even been put into law.
Speaking to the Post from a Trump rally this past weekend, McCormick said she’s not worried about losing her Medicaid coverage under the GOP’s plan.
“So far, everything’s been positive, from what I can tell,” she said. “I just hope that more and more people and children get covered under this new health-care plan.”
Obama’s ACA allows people to enroll when they lose their job and the healthcare benefits that came with it — the very feature that her son benefited from.
McComic says she has never trusted a president the way she trusts Trump. Ahead of the election, she and her relatives turned their cars into a “Trump train” and drove across Lexington, waving flags and shouting: “Trump! Trump! Vote for Trump!”
“We said: ‘Who else would we do this for, besides Trump?’ ” McComic said. “We agreed on the Lord. We would stand here for the Lord, but that’s about it.”
