1/ No one is happy with their health ‘insurance’ plan. No one. Those who say they are happy are confused. They conflate ‘happy with my plan’ with ‘happy with my doctors and hospitals in my plan’. But those are not the same things.
2/ When your job changes plans (as the majority do, every year, to save money), and you loose access to the same doctors and hospitals you had before, it’s not the ‘plan’ you liked, and now miss: it’s the doctors you liked - and now miss. That’s the issue. Do you see it, yet?
3/ For planned surgery, do you make sure that EVERY Dr and anesthesiologist that even looks at your chart takes your insurance? Are they ‘in network’? Do you still ‘like your plan’? And that’s work you must do BEFORE the ‘planned’ surgery. That doesn’t cover emergency surgeries.

When anyone tells you we cannot afford it please compare the costs of decades of death and destruction, with NO return on investment, not to mention the incalculable loss in death, suffering, pain, & disability for troops, who should have choice of private care.
If we spent the money we have spent on death and destruction IN OTHER COUNTRIES. We could have invested in a healthier, more educated society with modern infrastructure which ALL would make us much more competitive in an increasingly competitive world.

To keep minimum wage low, add more steps to get voter registration and to vote, and no time off to vote, guarantees more people will NOT vote. People do not vote because the government does NOT care about the people, their struggles, their health, and their education.

@GeorgeTakei We ARE at WAR, no doubt about it.
An undeclared #CYBERWAR and we have been victims of #CyberWarfare for years.

This #CorruptGOP #PutinsPuppets have been complicit and compromised in denying it to the public.

A clear violation of their duties and oath of office. #ImpeachTrump
@GeorgeTakei #WeThePeople ask @HouseDemocrats not to stand for Trump AT ALL. To HONOR a NATION, that is lied to daily, its coffers are being emptied every second of every minute of every day. His Presidency has been a NIGHTMARE, and our country, and people will be lucky to survive it.
@GeorgeTakei @HouseDemocrats #WeThePeople have WON back this HOUSE. THE PRESENCE OF THIS PRESIDENT IN THIS AUGUST GRAND HISTORIC BUILDING DENIGRATES IT, AND THOSE WHO FOUGHT AND DIED FOR A DEMOCRACY, NOT A DEMAGOGUE.
His very presence is an insult to the world and every Ally of the United States. #SOTU

This is NOT a drill people!

Pretending it's not happening enables it to accelerate

Internment camps are set up...they're waiting...they've had a test run...there will be more...it will get worse

UNLESS More Americans STEP IT UP & MAKE IT STOP

This Republican control over all parts of our government defies comparison. On second thought, it feels like a Biblical punishment..Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?
#RepublicanPlague #CrimesAgainstHumanity #RiseUp
First, the waters of the land of Egypt were to be turned into blood....
The Clean Water Rule protected smaller bodies of water, like streams and wetlands, from discharges of all kinds of pollutants. But not anymore: #RepublicanPlague #CleanWaterAct
The EPA has delayed implementation for 2 years as the agency “clarifies” (read: eliminates)the rule.The decision is a clear gift to industrial polluters who loudly protested the reg in 2015 & GOP lawmakers who have falsely claimed the rule regulates “puddles on private property.” Large freighter ship spilled red and yellow toxic sludge into waterway. People in small boats float on the spill.

The problems that the US has had with ICE are longstanding. Indeed, as much as the current atrocities, ICE has failed the American people frequently in the past. Formed during the advent of the Department of Homeland Security, ICE combined the former INS and Customs departments.
As soon as the two agencies merged, problems began appearing. There was a significant culture clash between gun-carrying law enforcement officers in Immigration, and the scientists and technocrats in Customs.

Remember when you believed @JeremyCorbyn & @UKLabour might be playing a long game & come out in the end to #StopBrexit with the Ultimate People Power move by supporting the right to a #PeoplesVote?
Me too.

No plans, cunning or otherwise
Our elected representatives are permitting a path that denies our young people any chance at fair future.

ToryGov deliberately blocked 16-18 yr olds from deciding their future by taking part in the EU Membership Referendum
bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-po…?
The Tories managed to block UK young people from voting by claiming it would cost too much to inform & register everyone.
The estimated cost was £6M.
That was considered too expensive.
Brexit is likely costing us millions a wk in lost revenue.

I have received more messages of love and solidarity this week than any person deserves in a lifetime. For that I am forever grateful. And our struggle against this immoral tax scam will reach its climax next week.
On Mon & Tue, we will meet on Capitol Hill in a contest for the soul of this nation. The sides are clear: money vs. people, greed vs. love. Across the US, Americans are raising our voices, rejecting this bill's pessimistic vision: a vision of scarcity, inequality, and misery.
Our only chance at victory is to clarify the moral stakes of this bill.

And to do that, we need the best voices of the American people. That means you, and your story, and your hopes, and your dreams.

Will you join us?
