Trump when told the biggest losers under ‘Trumpcare’ would be his own voters: ‘Oh, I know’
In a Wednesday interview, Tucker Carlson of Fox News told President Trump that the American Health Care Act, the putative replacement for Obamacare, would cause the most damage to those who voted for him.
“I know,” he said.
According to the analysis, people in counties that voted for Trump would see $6.6 billion in annual tax cuts, while people living in counties that supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would get a tax break of $21.9 billion.
Based on an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the seven states in which Americans would see their tax credits decline the most are Alaska, North Carolina, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Alabama, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Each of those states voted for Trump. In fact, the 13 states that would see the steepest declines in tax credits all swung toward Trump in November.
