Virtually everything working people have gained to improve health and retirement security since the New Deal is now at risk, including Medicare, Medicaid, workplace health plans, the coverage gains of the Affordable Care Act, and Social Security.
Republicans in Congress are rushing to approve so-called “health reform” plans with breathtaking speed that would effectively end these major forms of coverage as we know them without providing replacement coverage to the 30 million Americans who will become uninsured as a result of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
We are proud to count on the support of U.S. Senators Menendez and Booker in this fight, but your voice can strengthen the case they make to Congress. Call 888-865-8089 now to let them know that you support a plan to protect Medicare, Medicaid, workers, health plans, and the tens of millions of Americans who gained coverage due to the ACA. CLICK HERE for additional talking points.
We also urge you to join for the national Health Care Day of Action to oppose cuts to the health and wellbeing of American families on Sunday, January 15, 2017. CLICK HERE to RSVP and find an event near you.
Besides the trouble brewing in Congress, Trump’s cabinet nominations will essentially hand our government over to the billionaire beneficiaries of our broken economic system. By nominating a cabinet full of super-rich, trickle-down true believers who will suppress pay, increase income inequality, and embolden Wall Street, Trump is going back on his promise to make life better for working people. CLICK HERE to learn about the nominees and equip yourself with the facts to fight back.
The road ahead will not be easy, but your solidarity and persistence will make the difference.
