PROTECT OUR HEALTHCARE
Healthcare is a human right. Yet every action Trump, his administration, and his GOP have taken on healthcare has caused harm. More people are uninsured. Premiums are going up.
The attacks on preexisting conditions continue:
- 75% of Americans want to keep ACA protections for preexisting conditions and yesterday a coalition of Republican led Attorneys General argued a case to declare the ACA, and coverage of preexisting conditions, unconstitutional. The Trump regime refuses to defend preexisting conditions coverage, leaving the defense of the ACA to others.
- Brett Kavanaugh has refused to provide assurances that he would support requiring insurance companies to cover preexisting conditions. If confirmed to the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh will likely hear the case regarding preexisting conditions and has also argued that the President can decline to enforce a statue—such as the ACA and the coverage of preexisting conditions—even if a court upholds its constitutionality.
Demand a government—including the Supreme Court—that will fight for our wellbeing and defend our healthcare!
Work to turn both houses of Congress BLUE and, remember . . .
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. Brett Kavanaugh is a threat to healthcare and I’m asking the Senator to do all he can to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed. Please tell him to demand that Judiciary Committee hearings adjourn until all records are released, and that no Senate vote be taken until all Senators and the American people have access to all of Kavanaugh’s records. Thank you.”

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling Mr. Walden to repeat my OUTRAGE that he continues to lead the Trump regime’s constant attacks on MY HEALTHCARE! This is personal! He has sold my family, my friends and me out! Like the rest of the GOP, he puts Party Before People! History will not treat Greg Walden’s complicity with Trump’s obscene policies kindly. Thank you.”
