We defeated Trumpcare!
Friday was a great day for the health and safety of all Americans. Together, we defeated Trumpcare.
In Congress, I’m working to make health care more accessible and improve people’s lives, not build a system to maximize corporate profits or make people fend for themselves. Let’s build a movement and keep up the fight for our health care!
They wanted to gut Medicaid, destabilize Medicare, and defund Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide reproductive health care. They wanted to make it harder for women, seniors, and low-income people to access the care they need. Why? To reward the wealthiest Americans with billions in tax cuts.
And that all-male table of Republicans sitting around debating cuts to maternity care coverage? That was unbelievable. Like they know what it’s like to be a pregnant mom without health care.
You said NO. And I said NO. And the American people, with one loud voice, said NO.
Thank you. You made this happen.
Our neighbors are counting on us to fight for our health care and pass common-sense reforms like the public option – and I know we have the grassroots energy to make it happen.
Together, we can build a future where every family has access to quality, affordable health care.
