Use personal stories to remind Republicans of the devastating cost of their healthcare bill

Use personal stories to remind Republicans of the devastating cost of their healthcare bill

Fems for Change is using stories to make sure their elected officials understand that the Republican healthcare bill is life-or-death legislation. You can do the same. By all accounts, Republicans just don’t care. They don’t care that their healthcare legislation will leave 22 million Americans without health insurance. They don’t care that people will die. They don’t even seem to […]

Three Democratic proposals for improving Obamacare that Republicans refuse to hear

Congressman Dan Kildee refutes the lie Republicans keep pedaling in their scheme to shove their terrible healthcare legislation through Congress. A popular Republican talking point is the false notion that Democrats have not offered any suggestions for improving the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or Obamacare).

Congressman Dan Kildee calls out Republicans on “cynical legislative ploys” of AHCA

The Congressman from Flint, Michigan, explains why the American Health Care Act isn’t really about healthcare at all. By now, you’ve surely seen it: The beer bash at the White House where House Republicans jubilantly celebrated robbing an estimated 24 million Americans (and counting) of their health insurance after their “repeal and replace” vote on the American Health Care Act […]

Punishing people with pre-existing conditions is a national disgrace

Punishing people with pre-existing conditions is a national disgrace

House Republicans continue to show their true, cruel colors with the latest amendment to their bill to gut Obamacare. I’m sick of being a pawn in the Republican game of repeal and replace.

Defy the anti-Obamacare propaganda and tell the White House your ACA success story

The President is supposed to care about all Americans — not just those who align with his self-serving agenda. Of the many things to be infuriated about since Donald Trump became President, and there are many, his attempt to position Americans as “victims” of Obamacare and solicit Obamacare “disaster” stories from the public is pretty high on the list for […]

AHCA! AHCA! Who wins in GOP repeal of the Affordable Care Act: Insurance companies and the wealthy

At a public appearance this past weekend, Republican Congressman Tim Walberg told the crowd at an impromptu townhall, “Remember, the Affordable Care Act was passed without CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scoring.” This is false.
