Senator Tammy Duckworth, a combat veteran herself, took on President Trump Thursday, claiming he was trying to impose what amounts to a tax hike on millions of Veterans’ healthcare. 
 
Duckworth says an eleventh hour amendment made to the Republican healthcare repeal plan would make Veterans ineligible for health care tax credits that could help them afford private health insurance. Duckworth believes the President is breaking a promise to vets on the healthcare front.
 
 
Duckworth says the change could make health care more expensive, or even out of reach, for millions of Veterans who are either ineligible for coverage in the VA Health Care system.
