You want to know stupid? Courtesy of the Washington Post:

Soon after Charla McComic’s son lost his job, his health-insurance premium dropped from $567 per month to just $88, a “blessing from God” that she believes was made possible by President Trump.

“I think it was just because of the tax credit,” said McComic, 52, a former first-grade teacher who traveled to Trump’s Wednesday night rally in Nashville from Lexington, Tenn., with her daughter, mother, aunt and cousin.

The price change was actually thanks to a subsidy made possible by former president Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which is still in place, not by the tax credits proposed by Republicans as part of the health-care bill still being considered by Congress.
This woman was a teacher.

I wish I could say I found stories like this surprising, or shocking in some way. But I don't. You just have to spend a few seconds listening to these Trump people. And multiply that by probably twenty or thirty million people, and you end up with the catastrophe that we have on our hands.
