Cindy K, welcome to Medium!
The strident supporters of this administration are focused on one thing: securing their place at the top of the food chain an everyone else can scrounge around for leftover morsels, if that.
I don’t know if you saw the story about “strident” Pennsylvania steelworkers who were all in for this administration for their promises of more jobs, more winning, bigger seats at the table … There was a steel worker who now is rethinking all of this as it looks like the new tariffs are going to put him out of a job.
There are thousands of people who were dead set against the ACA, but now … now that they’ve upon hard times, have pre-existing conditions or they don’t have the financial resources to secure the care they so desperately need to LIVE — not take trans-Atlantic excursions or collect money from boosts to their companies, but to LIVE — they’re thankful for the ACA.
People are slooowly coming around, but at the current rate of speed, the country will be in tatters by the ime people get with the program.
Like one of the other commenters said, they don’t care because these things don’t touch their lives. Sad thing is, they do. The neighborhood is on fire, but they’re in bed watching the late night news thinking the fire will never reach their house.
Thanks for commenting.
