Activism: Saving the ACA: Setting Priorities

Yesterday I read an article saying the senate phone lines aren’t ringing off the hook.


Yesterday I read many articles about an R congressman who got shot. It was big news. Don’t forget that US congressman get the best medical care science has to offer.

He doesn’t need to pay his deductible. He doesn’t need to wonder which drugs are covered by his insurance. They all are and he has no deductible.

His children don’t need to go without health care in order for his family to eat.

His family doesn’t need to decide if it’s more important to pay the doctor, or the rent this month.

He also voted to take the privilege of health care away from you, your children and your grandchildren.


Yesterday I read an article about a workplace shooting. Four people died. Not one of them had a contingent of armed guards standing by to protect them.

Not one of them got shot in the hip.

All four are dead.

Guess who voted to put guns in the hands of the wrong people.


batgirlredphone_zps2d0d7e99What’s going to happen to you or your family when and if you get caught up in a terrorist action, workplace shooting, or a spray of bullets from some asshole who’s had too much coffee?

Will you get the best health care that can be provided, or will you get the best health care you can put on your credit card?

A call to action: Save the ACA

I’m going to be asking a lot of everyone over the next two weeks. The stakes are high and no one can help us. We must help ourselves.

  • Call your Senators, both D and R.
    • Support the D’s
    • Demand the R’s vote against the Trumpcare
  • Please make two or three calls each day this week.
    • Leave VM’s at 4:00 AM or at 11:30 PM
    • Make a call during your morning and evening commute.

What’s important to you, a rich politician or the health and well being of your family?

Make the calls, please..

O-

P.S. Recently the con artist in chief said the house version of the AHCA Trumpcare shit sandwich was “mean” and that he wanted the Senate version to be more “generous.” To the best of my knowledge no one asked him to whom he felt it was being mean, and who should benefit from the Senate’s generosity.

  1. “Trumpcare shit sandwich” is incorrect, I think. I believe the proper expression is “Trumpshit sandwich.” Trumpcare would imply there’s some aspect of the bill that is about caring about anything except money.
