The GOP's true colors
Last Thursday was one of the saddest days I've ever experienced in Washington -- not just because of the vote to pass Trumpcare, but because of what happened next.
Right after they voted, my Republican colleagues boarded buses and drove over to the White House for a celebration. They stood before the eyes of the nation and the world beaming, clapping as Donald Trump declared victory.
But their "victory" means the American people lose. If this bill becomes law, 24 million people will lose their health coverage, and people with pre-existing conditions could see their premiums increase until they're out of reach.
House Republicans showed their true colors on Thursday. They put millions of lives at risk just to let Donald Trump chalk up a win. So we have to be resolved more than ever before to kick them out of office.
Before the Affordable Care Act, too many families had to choose between paying off medical bills or putting food on the table.
That's the reality Republicans want to take us back to, and Democrats are fighting with everything we've got to make sure it never happens.
We need your help to elect Democrats who will fight back -- pitch in $10 or more if you're with us, and let's beat the GOP.
