📣 THREAD: Thanks to over 3,600 patriotic Americans, I've broken my goal of raising $500,000 to help flip as many seats blue as possible this cycle!

Now, with 114 days until the 2020 general election, I'm DOUBLING my target to an even $1 MILLION! 1/

Instead of listing the U.S. Senate page first as I usually do, I'm gonna start promoting the STATE legislative pages first. You get more bang for your buck with these races, and state legislatures usually control redistricting and other critical tools of government. 2/
MICHIGAN: In 2018 we flipped 5 seats apiece in the state House and Senate. In 2020 the Senate isn't up, but we can #FlipMIHouseBlue by flipping just 4 more seats!

I particularly recommend helping @voteKellyBreen in HD38 and @votePulver in HD39. 3/

⚠️⚠️⚠️ LONG, GRAPHICS-HEAVY THREAD: How many would lose healthcare coverage and how much *federal funding* would YOUR Congressional District lose if Trump & GOP win their #TexasFoldEm lawsuit to repeal the #ACA?
Back in March, the @urbaninstitute ran a detailed analysis to figure out how many people would lose healthcare coverage in each state if the #ACA were to be struck down by the #TexasFoldEm lawsuit. They also figured out how much federal funding each state would lose. 1/
Recently, @EmilyG_DC and I took the @urbaninstitute’s work one step further & broke out the coverage losses out by *congressional district*. 2/ americanprogress.org/issues/healthc…

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/ usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
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/ littlelobbyists.org/our-stories
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/ vox.com/policy-and-pol…

📣 THREAD: Oral arguments on the insane #TexasFoldEm #ACA case will happen on Tuesday before a 3-judge panel for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
One judge is a Jimmy Carter appointee.
One is a George W. Bush appointee.
One is a Donald Trump appointee.

As @mattbc just noted, while a HUGE social media presence to #SaveTheACA is expected (as well as real world protests/rallies, etc), the sad truth is that there's very little which can be done to influence the 5th Circuit panels' decision. They're lifetime judicial appointees. 2/
As he also pointed out, while the *hearing* will happen on Tuesday, they likely won't announce their *decision* on the case for several weeks or even months...and the odds are that their decision will then be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court regardless of how they rule. 3/

Judge #Kavanaugh has been on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit for over 10 years. He's a member of the Federalist Society. (@FedSoc) (yikes!)
Let's take a look at his record! 🧐 #WhatsAtStake #SaveSCOTUS

ICYMI: The Federalist Society is “a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order.” #SCOTUS nominee #BrettKavanaugh is a member. Fun!
