Fanatics

This includes Kathy Oller, an Obamacare enrollment worker who supported Trump in the 2016 election. She feels let down by the Republican health care plan — “If they take the expanded Medicaid away, it really, really is gonna kill Kentuckians because they won’t have health insurance,” she says — and she’s already seeing other ways that Trump health policies are hurting Kentucky. Obamacare sign-ups, she said, were slower this year, as people in Kentucky were confused about whether the health care law still existed.

But Oller doesn’t regret her vote for Trump — “I don’t have regrets,” she says plainly — and she trusts that Rogers, whom she has also voted for, knows what he’s doing. She gets most her news from his weekly emails to constituents; she cites his arguments for why the law needs to be repealed.

This sentiment felt ubiquitous in Corbin. Obamacare enrollees I interviewed didn’t like the Republican plan, but they still trusted the Republican Party to do the right thing on health care.

They felt like they had picked a side, and now they were going to stick with it.
To Hoskins, this was common sense: Of course votes would shift if Congress voted to end health insurance for millions of Americans. He predicted that Rogers’s vote to repeal Obamacare “probably changed every working person’s opinion [who is] on the Affordable Care Act.”

Actually, it didn’t. Most Obamacare enrollees I talked to didn’t like the Republican bill, but they didn’t think it would change their votes either
Smith didn’t like the changes we talked about in the Republican plan — but she wasn’t especially worried about them either. She understood that her premium might go up and her subsidy could go down. But she felt like she had picked a side in America’s political debate, and for now, she is going to stick with it.

“We choose which party we place our values with,” she says. “We’re supposed to trust them to do for us, you know, what our party stands for.”

How are these folks any different than those middle-eastern religious fanatics?

Their "values" apparently include taking a sharp knife and inserting it into their own anal orifice and twisting it around.

Religious fanatics and racists are going to do fanatical and racist things. Whether they live in Kentucky, Kandahar, Karnataka or Karbala. Regardless of the specific characteristics of the fictional entities they worship.
