5 Minute Action for Thursday, 3/9: Join AARP and AMA Opposition to ‘TrumpCare’

In stating their strong opposition to TrumpCare, AARP has cited a variety of issues, such as “shortening the life of Medicare, hiking costs for those who can least afford higher insurance premiums, risking seniors’ ability to live independently, and giving tax breaks to big drug companies and health insurance companies.”

In addition, the American Medical Association also calls the GOP healthcare bill “critically flawed”. In a letter to congressional leaders they state: “While we agree that there are problems with the ACA that must be addressed, we cannot support the AHCA as drafted because of the expected decline in health insurance coverage and the potential harm it would cause to vulnerable patient populations.”

TODAY’s 5 Minute Action:

Step 1:  Let’s start with AARP today. Thank them for standing up for seniors and for their clear and strong public opposition to TrumpCare. Support their action to tell Congress to vote NO on TrumpCare.

BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!

Thank you from the TrumpResistance.TODAY team
