Top tasks for this week (thanks to itstimetofight.weebly.com for many of these links)
Call your reps and tell them:
#ZombieTrumpCare will die, but we must help it along. Grab your Louisville Slugger, I mean your cellphone, and tell your reps #NoTrumpCare.
The Trump administration and Tom Price must not be allowed to weaken the ACA. They must competently administer the markets, enforce the individual mandate, continue the insurance subsidies, ensure essential health benefits, refrain from instituting work benefit requirements for Medicaid, and remove legal challenges to the ACA. #ACAWorks #The MandateWorks #ACASubsidiesWork #HealthBenefitsAreEssential #SickPeopleCantWork
#PriceMustGo. His newly discovered even-worse insider trading, corruption, opposition to broad based health coverage, and anti-vaccine statements make him unfit to lead a Cabinet-level health agency.
#DontBlameTheSick. Work eligibility requirements for Medicaid are cruel and ineffective, revealing the true face of GOP health policy.
