Now that their weeklong vacation is over, Senate Republicans are preparing to pull the rug out from under their constituents, threatening immense suffering for seniors, working families and people with pre-existing conditions just to give massive tax breaks to the ultra-rich.
At long last, the public can read the Trumpcare discussion draft Republicans have worked so hard to hide from the American people. The President called the House bill ‘mean,’ and now we know that Senate Republicans’ version is just as heartless and cruel.
This has been a difficult week. Our city suffered the sad loss of Benson Louie, Wayne Chan, and Michael Lefti in the tragic shooting at the UPS facility in Potrero Hill that also wounded two others.
A future worth saving
In the past two weeks, the American people have witnessed earth-shaking revelations about the outrageous behavior of President Trump.
An Abrupt Firing
The President’s sudden and brazen firing of the FBI Director raises the ghosts of some of the worst Executive Branch abuses. We cannot stand by and watch a cover-up of the possible collusion with a hostile foreign power to undermine American democracy.
TrumpCare being pulled from the House floor is a victory for the American people, who made their voices heard across the country. These voices weighing in against Republicans’ assault on American health care made all the difference in this critical fight.
Reverse Robin Hood
It’s been 50 days since the President’s inauguration. And in all that time, the President still has not put forward a single significant jobs bill. Instead, Republicans are racing to pass their long-feared and job-killing health bill that means less coverage and more costs for the American people: Pay More For Less.
