Trumpcare Vote Today – Speak Out!

Today Mitch McConnell is calling a vote on ‘healthcare’, though no one knows what they are going to be voting on. It is critical that we flood Washington with phone calls, emails, tweets, and if you are close enough, your bodies. Call your Senator’s local offices, and stop by those home offices if you can. We MUST let them know in no uncertain terms that there are hundreds of millions of us who do NOT want this shredding of the Affordable Care Act, nor the massive transfer of wealth from those receiving Medicaid to the top of the economic structure.

This site will give you links to both phone and email access to all of our senators:

What Nation Are We? This Way Lies Death and Ruin. Killing Medicaid (Patients)

On Friday June 23, 2017, Ari Melber, sitting in for Lawrence O’Donnell on, facilitated the best and most extensive examination of Medicaid and the potential consequences of the Senate (and House) Affordable Care Act replacement – aka “Trumpcare”. Medicaid is the single most important component of American healthcare, directly impacting 70 MILLION people, and indirectly impacting virtually ALL of us. From infants being born, to many of the disables, to the elderly fighting to stay in their homes (or in nursing homes) to the poor (rural and urban), it is the bedrock upon which virtually all of us count. This is critical, and what the Republicans are proposing will drop a bomb on the overall healthcare system, and it will result in the deaths of tens of thousands. I cannot urge you strongly enough to take 23 minutes and watch the video clips from the program. Anything this critical deserves you time – and your voice.

Can We Arrest the Congress for Robbery and Attempted Murder?

My life is on the line as are the lives of millions of others. My continued existence depends upon access to an expensive mix of medications and medical care for I live with a double-lung transplant. My yearly out-of pocket expenses are already over $20,000 a year. With the “improvements” proffered by Trump and the Republicans, that amount will at least quintuple – just for the insurance, and forget about deductibles and co-pays. Without a medical “lifeline” I will die. I suspect that most of us will have someone we know or love who will lose their lives.

Trump Starts Run, and So Many Troublesome Issues

The Trump Presidency has started, and the ‘troublesome issues’ are multiplying rather than decreasing. Beginning with who had seats on the dais (at least seven Trump donor billionaires)1 and then attended the Capitol luncheon thereafter. Add in an inauguration speech that was almost as divisive as his campaign speeches, and clearly aimed at his base. He then goes to the Liberty Ball and calls his critics “enemies”.

Law Suits to Silence Others

Liberty silencedAs some may be aware, if people are saying or reporting things that someone or organization does not want in the public square, they may file a law suit to essentially silence those people. Now President Trump threatened to file suit against the women who came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and abuse committed by him. Of course, now-President Trump is not the only person to do that. These types of suits are referred to as SLAPP suits. That means a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. It ” is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. Such lawsuits have been made illegal in many jurisdictions on the grounds that they impede freedom of speech.” (Wikipedia)
