As the Trump administration attempts to erase the last remnants of the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a health care plan, there’s been a growing number of stories of people who’ve come to the conclusion that the government and the people are more concerned with covering themselves and their families, than they are with the health of their communities.
This is the theme of the most recent series of videos that’s being released on YouTube, by people who are living the nightmare of the American dream, but have chosen to live it in the shadow of a Trump presidency.
One such person is Lauren Kowalski, a 23-year-old University of Georgia student who is now living in Atlanta and working to help other young people who want to pursue careers in the healthcare industry, and who hopes to eventually become an executive.
In one video she explains how the American Dream has been a burden to her.
She describes how she has been “furious and frustrated” at the Trumpcare bill, and that she has no interest in pursuing a career in the health care industry, even if she could make a few hundred thousand dollars a year working for the government.
“I want to do something different, I want to make money and do something with my life,” she says in the video.
“And that’s why I want people to think twice before they think, ‘Well, we’ve got this.
She explains how she decided to come out to her community, and to share her story. “
Kowalskis story is the subject of an interview with The American Woman, an online publication.
She explains how she decided to come out to her community, and to share her story.
The interview is a testament to how the Trump health care repeal and replace effort is affecting a lot of young people, and the ways that they are being left behind.

“We have a healthcare system that’s very similar to the insurance system we have in the United States, so you have the private insurance companies that are basically like private banks that will insure you, and they charge you whatever the cost of the plan. “
“But what if the government starts to put up a charge? “
What if you’re uninsured, and then you go to a private insurer and they don’t have to cover you?” she adds. “

“You’re out of luck.
So people are saying: ‘Well what am I going to do, what can I do to make sure I have the insurance?’
And the government says: ‘No, it’s a public system, so we’re going to make it much more expensive.'”
