It is lengthy overdue for individuals to get up to the truth that Republican politicians in Washington, Augusta and throughout the nation have bought out to the wealthy and highly effective and grow to be their puppets. They might declare to serve the individuals, however they don’t. They serve their masters, the 1 %.
This has by no means been extra apparent than when Senate Republicans plan secretly to push by way of TrumpCare. Not solely will TrumpCare trigger 23 million individuals to lose health insurance coverage and greater than 53 million to lose protections for pre-existing circumstances, it’s going to hand out tons of of billions in tax cuts to the rich and huge firms. We must struggle this tooth and nail.
At the identical time the Trump finances goals to make large cuts in meals stamps, incapacity insurance coverage, women’s heath providers, funding for schooling, environmental safety, public broadcasting, help for the humanities, earlier than and after faculty packages for low-income youngsters and low-income power help, to call just some of the cuts.
The GOP’s objectives are to safe higher wealth, energy and privilege for the 1 %. Your household, buddies, coworkers and neighbors are going to endure enormously because of this blatant seize for a good greater piece of the pie.
Fighting this insanity begins with common individuals waking as much as what’s happening. It is a struggle that defines the sort of nation we stay in now and during which our youngsters will develop up. And our response to this second defines who we’re. Ultimately, we’d like Medicare for All — a common program that ensures that each one of us get the care we’d like. But at present, we have to stand and defend what we’ve constructed thus far. Lives depend upon it. Speak out. Let Sen. Susan Collins know that you simply oppose TrumpCare.
