Medicaid: Stop the GOP plan to cut it – Sarah Chaisson Warner, People’s Action


The Republicans’ new bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and gut Medicaid is a disaster. Insurance premiums and deductibles would rise. Families would pay more for less. You, your family or your neighbors may not be able to get needed care.

Worst of all, thousands could die. Just so the GOP can give massive tax breaks to the rich, and let insurance and drug corporations profiteer from our health care.

But we’ve already slowed the Republicans down. With enough pressure, we can kill their bill before it kills us.

Write your representative. Tell them to vote against the Republican repeal bill. People shouldn’t die just so the rich can get richer.

Republican leaders have already rammed this disastrous bill through one House committee. They are moving it without hearings or nonpartisan analysis of costs and effects. They don’t want us to know how much their radical plan will cost or exactly how many people it will hurt.

This bill is far worse than a terrible repeal plan. It’s also a Trojan horse for ending Medicaid as we know it. This threatens everyone from newborns to seniors getting long-term care. Next, the Republicans plan to go after Medicare.

We can stop this unpopular plan. Write your representative. Tell them to vote against repealing our health care.

If the Republicans really wanted to improve our health care, they would open Medicare to everyone. They also would let the program negotiate lower prices with drug corporations.

Instead they want to take away our health care to give a tax break to the rich and give corporations more power. None of us voted for that. Our representatives in Congress shouldn’t either.

Thank you for being a health care champion!

EPA … URGENT: Trump’s attacks have begun


Trump and Pruitt just launched their attack on the EPA. Support the resistance!

Do we want to go back EPA gif

Give to Greenpeace by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT to join the RESIST supporter drive and fight back!

Donate now!

The attack on the EPA — and our clean air and water — has begun. Yesterday, Trump started his promised rollback of the EPA with devastating budget cuts1 and a new executive order on the Waters of the United States Rule, a critical protection for streams, lakes, and other waterways.2 Before this important rule, 117-million Americans — one in three people in the country — depended on the drinking water that lacked these basic protections.3

Now, thanks to Trump, their water will be in danger again. Help us fight back!

In light of these developments, Greenpeace is raising the goal for our RESIST supporter drive from 1,000 supporters to 1,500. We need all the help we can get to resist the attacks from the Trump administration’s dangerous anti-environment agenda. Will you please help us step up our resistance with your urgent contribution by midnight tonight?

Unbelievably, Trump and new EPA head, Scott Pruitt, claim that the EPA can better protect our air and water without critical regulations like the Clean Power Plan or Waters of the US Rule.4Wrong! We have to expose these insidious attacks on our environment for what they are: favors to the fossil fuel industry at the expense of our air, water, health, and the safety of our communities. Your support for Greenpeace will give us the resources to do that.

Stand with this movement now — RESIST!

Together we will demonstrate the power of our movement — and keep demanding change until we achieve a just, sustainable world for all.

Thank you for your continued support,

Rebecca Gerber
Climate Team, Greenpeace USA

P.S. The news about this new executive order is crushing, but giving up has never been what Greenpeace stands for! Help us fight back for our communities and environment. Please donate by midnight tonight so we can reach our goal for this supporter drive and scale up our nationwide resistance across the country.
