"Ultimately, I believe this bill is about our morals. The plan the House is voting on is a values statement and it is not a good one."

Don’t ask me who’s influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he’s digested, and I’ve been reading all my life. – Giorgos Seferis writer, diplomat, Nobel laureate 1900-1971

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.

- Carl Sagan

Organizing for Action

Last night, House leaders introduced their bill to repeal Obamacare.

Simply put, it is unacceptable. It will slash the financial assistance that millions need to afford health insurance. It effectively ends the Medicaid expansion that allowed working families and millions more kids, seniors, and disabled Americans to finally have access to health care. The bill will drive up consumer costs, forcing families to pay more for less -- and will once again leave Americans with chronic illnesses at the mercy of insurance companies.

This is not a plan.

Let your representatives know how you feel -- tell them that this bill is reckless and dangerous. Get in touch with them now.

Regardless of the colossal disaster that would result from this bill, congressional leaders are still trying to rush it through -- trying to force the first votes on it before Congress' own non-partisan analysts have a chance to calculate the damage it would cause.

That's because they know if the American people find out how embarrassingly inadequate this replacement attempt is, they wouldn't be able to show their faces from the shame. Americans will end up losing coverage under this bill -- period.

They have broken every single promise they made. Covering more people? No. Better coverage? Nope. People with pre-existing conditions protected? Not likely -- with new penalties for gaps in coverage and the removal of policies that keep more healthy people in the insurance market, they can't guarantee it.

This scheme is irresponsible and cruel. People's health care isn't a political game -- there are lives on the line here. We cannot let congressional leadership rush through a bill that rips health coverage away from millions of people without a heck of a fight.

Speak up now.

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me."

Muslim Ban Is Still Wrong

"Earlier today, Trump introduced the latest version of his Muslim Ban, which again targets the most vulnerable and voiceless in our society -- refugees and immigrants.

Make no mistake: this ban does not keep us safe. It puts American lives at risk while isolating the Muslim community at a time when we need to address the threat of homegrown extremism. No matter the changes, this executive action remains immoral and fundamentally un-American."

Journalists should just keep this sentence handy as a template to paste: "Trump offered no proof for his claims."
