This week at Beer & Politics we’ll be contacting our representatives to ask them to work on strengthening the ACA rather than making it harder for millions of us to get the healthcare we need. They’ve cut the funding for any information dissemination about the ACA by 90% and for Navigators by 40%, and cut the Open Enrollment period to just 6 weeks. And now they are going to take the website Healthcare.gov down for 12 hours each weekend for maintenance. If they can’t repeal and replace it, they’re going to make sure it dies the death of a thousand cuts. President Trump has been clear about his goal, saying, “The best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode.” And Sen. Lindsey Graham put it equally bluntly, tweeting that “the ‘Collapse and Replace’ of Obamacare may prove to be the most effective path forward.”
Join us Wednesday at THE BLOCK off biltmore for Beer & Politics, a fun, easy, and educational way to reach out and make our voices heard. Drop by after work any time between 5:30 and 7:00. We’ll supply fact sheets on this week’s topics, plus address labels, postcards, stationery, envelopes, and stamps.
And here’s a link to keep up with the GOP’s continuing onslaught on the ACA.
