We're 100 days from the #2020Election!

1/100 THREAD “This election is a matter of life & death for kids like Xiomara.” Xiomara’s mom, @ElenaHung202

Now to 11/3, we're sharing a story of a #LittleLobbyists each day - 100 reasons to be a #HealthCareVoter
2/100 “Shreve was in the NICU for 9 months. Without the #ACA & #Medicaid, he would have reached the lifetime cap on care long before discharge." Shreve’s mom, Laura

This November, #vote against putting a cap on kids' lives.

3/100 “#Medicaid allows our family to function. It allows us as parents to sleep at night knowing Willa’s safe with a nurse. It makes it possible for us to work. It gives Willa access to the tech she needs to communicate & thrive.” #ProtectOurCare

Friends, tomorrow a Federal appeals court will hear arguments on the Administration's lawsuit to throw out the entire #ACA -- including #PreExistingCondition protections.

A thread on what this means. 1/…
The fight to #SavetheACA is why Little Lobbyists exists. #ACA protections allow our kids to survive and thrive: #PreExistingConditions & essential care covered, no arbitrary annual/lifetime caps on care. 2/
So when this Administration and the GOP in Congress began attacking the #ACA over two years ago, families organized together to fight back, to stand up for our kids and millions of others who would be devastated by these attacks. 3/…

1/ I refrained from responding with the level of vitriol I felt last night because I was at a lovely same-sex marriage and wanted to celebrate the beautiful day/night with the wonderful people there.
But not tonight...
Follow the thread for some FACTS....
2/ Let's start with this excellent article summarizing some FACTS we know.
And as a reminder: FACTS don't give a DAMN if you believe them or not.
And the FACTS tell us that more guns = higher rates of murder and suicide...…
3/ In fact, as the article above discusses, people w/guns at home for self-defense had a 40-70% INCREASED CHANCE of being murdered at home. This went up to 270% INCREASED chance of being murdered if the gun was loaded.
Guns at home also = a 3-6-times increased risk of suicide

I’d love to know what Sen. Barto means by “making healthcare great again,” but she won’t attend public debates.

She has been a consistent voice for junk insurance that covers nothing and discriminates against those with preexisting conditions.

The bottom line is that healthcare in America is broken.

My day one priorities:
☑️protect those with preexisting conditions via state law
☑️allow individuals to buy into Medicaid
☑️stop undermining those aspects of the ACA that actually work

If you elect people who take money from insurance and pharmaceutical companies, you are going to get laws that benefit insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

Wanted to share a little about the lawsuit that AG Hawley filed that would eliminate protections for preexisting conditions for millions of Americans, including kids like ours. Feel free to follow along. 1/
Here's the first page of the lawsuit seeking to declare our health care protections unconstitutional. AG Hawley didn't have to join this lawsuit, but he chose to, on behalf of his state. 2/
Here's the part that says the #ACA protects #PreExistingConditions, makes sure people can't be charged more for them, and requires that insurers cover essential health benefits.

That's the part that keeps our kids alive and our families out of bankruptcy. 3/

Friends, today's developments with regard to our health care made crystal clear #WhatsAtStake, the need to #StopKavanaugh, and the need to be a #HealthCareVoter this November.

Here's a quick explainer thread on what happened, and where we go from here. (1/)
In Texas today, a judge heard arguments on the lawsuit brought by several GOP State AGs and the Trump Administration to declare the #ACA, including #PreExistingConditions protections, unconstitutional. That judge seemed prepared to do just that. (2/)…
If that one judge rules to strike down #PreExistingConditions protections, millions of Americans - including those of us with medically complex kids - would be at risk of losing health care.

Such a decision would be appealed, and could ultimately land at the Supreme Court. (3/)

Against him getting up the courage to kayak on his own for the first time.
Against just one more scoop of ice cream.

On the 8th Anniversary of #ACA it's crucial to demonstrate how our President has undermined healthcare for MILLIONS via #ACASabotage since his inauguration.

This THREAD is dedicated to everyone who used their voice to save healthcare & why we all must be a #HealthCareVoter 1/30
1/20/17: Trump's #ACA Executive Order directs federal agencies begin ❌ ACA “to maximum extent permitted by law.”

EO delays ACA provisions imposing tax, fee, or other costs & develops “free & open market” in health care among states.

Repeal legislation begins. #ACASabotage 2/30
1/26/17: Administration stops planned ads for the final week of open enrollment for marketplace health coverage. As a result, 400K+ are not enrolled.

Final 2017 plan selections come in below 2016. #ACASabotage 3/30
