Francine K., FL
I have had bronchial asthma for over 40 years. I moved from New York to Florida to breathe better. Since moving down to Florida, I have noticed changes in the air quality making some days difficult to breathe without wheezing and chest tightness. I suffer from numerous food allergies as well.
I was hoping that this current president would protect the Clean Air Act, because his daughter also has asthma. More and more people are coming down with this disease, which is frightening to have when you can't catch your breath.
