Angry about the AHCA? How about doing something about it?

imageTwo days ago, Republicans in Congress voted to pass the American Healthcare Act – an insane piece of legislation that has only two purposes:  Spite & power.

  • Not a a single healthcare organization supports it. 
  • The House Oversight Committee never got the chance to study it and provide estimates on it’s impact.
  • Not a single Democrat voted for it.
  • AHCA effectively cuts healthcare from 24 million citizens – especially those with pre-existing conditions who desperately need it.

Documented here (https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/115-2017/h256) the inhumane suffering & loss of life over the next several years will be staggering.  For an idea of the impact this will have, read this article:

So what are you going to do about it?

I’ll make it simple for you:

Almost every Republican voted for the bill.  If your Congressman is Republican, it’s likely he or she wanted to protect their own jobs & voted AGAINST the American people’s interests, believing you, their constituents, wouldn’t notice their actions when they run for reelection in 2018.
