Thursday 5/25 Call to Action

1. Today’s Call to Action is easy, thanks to the CBO score which reveals how truly awful the American Health Care Act is for many Americans. It seems most Republican representatives are being pretty darn quiet since the CBO’s release yesterday. They must understand that this does not put them in a good light.
Here is a good article which gives you the highlights of the CBO report.…/cbo-obamacare-repeal-health-care-… In general, if you you are a young, healthy male who earns a good income you will be fine. If you are older or a female you may not like what’s to come.
Feeling like you would like to read the CBO report yourself? Here it is:…/115th…/costestimate/hr1628aspassed.pdf
Today is a great day to call your representative and ask their opinion on this CBO report, especially if they voted “yes” for the AHCA. Are you feeling bold? Write a letter to your local paper about it!
2. More on the Budget
Yesterday, Betsy DeVos testified before Congress on Trump’s budget proposal. She is advocating for some bold changes in the education system. Even if you don’t have children that attend public schools, we all need to push for a vigorous education system for the benefit of our country. Read this article here:…/here-s-what-betsy-devos-said-today-on-…, or watch the video clip. School vouchers allow schools to discriminate against groups of children. This will never do! Please call your representative and tell them the proposed changes in education won’t work.
3. Net Neutrality
Do you enjoy unfettered access to things on the internet? Me too! The FCC does not agree. There is still time to put in a public comment to the FCC. Check out this article that walks you through the steps to do so.…/…
