Another classic Trump lie
Right before Paul Ryan pulled the GOP's ACA repeal bill, Donald Trump announced that he was planning to give up on trying to take people's health care away.
Turns out that was another classic Donald Trump lie.
This week, the Trump administration and the most extreme wing of the House GOP started negotiating another attempt to eliminate parts of the Affordable Care Act.
On the chopping block this time: maternity care and protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
This plan is no better than the last one. Will you let Republicans know you'll fight it with everything you've got?
For Republicans to make it harder and costlier for women and sick people to get the care they need is heartless. Using them as a bargaining chip to pass a bill that would take care away from millions of Americans is disgraceful.
Democrats won't stand for it. We're going to fight back.
Last time, we put up an incredible show of grassroots force that made Republicans think twice about even voting on a health care bill like this. We have to be ready to fight just as hard again.
That starts today -- sign your name and say you're ready to protect affordable health care:
More to come. Thanks for being with us on this.
