Let’s set the record straight:

Democrats believe that health care is a right for all Americans, not a privilege for the few.

That is why they spearheaded the passage of the historic Affordable Care Act in 2010.

#ProtectOurCare
FACT:

Under Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats, more than 5 million seniors have saved over $3 billion on the crippling cost of prescription drugs.

#ProtectOurCare
FACT:

Thanks to Speaker Pelosi and Democrats, over 100 million Americans are no longer slapped with a lifetime limit on their coverage;

130 million more, including 17 million children, are no longer denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition.

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
30,100: North Dakotans that would have lost health coverage by 2026 under the #GOP House-passed #Trumpcare bill./3 #ProtectOurCare #CultureOfCorruption #GOPGreed

The American people are confronted with a #GOP Congress and Administration that are relentlessly ransacking the futures of American families and seniors, all to further enrich their lobbyist and special interest friends, big corporations and the wealthiest one percent. /1
From health care, to taxes, to good-paying jobs, to critical consumer protections, President Trump and the #Republican Congress are selling out the American people at every turn: /2 #ARawDeal #CultureOfCorruption #RepublicanGreed
#Democrats must be ready to drive home our case to the American people about how a Democratic majority will fight For The People:/3 #ForAll #ForThePeople #ABetterDeal #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership

One year ago today, a wave of constituent pressure crashed in the Senate well -- saving health care for 23 million Americans and denying Trump a top legislative priority. 1/
We didn't build that wave overnight. It started little by little, when people like you showed up at town halls around the country to hold Republicans accountable for trying to repeal the ACA. nymag.com/daily/intellig… 2/
Republicans got scared off. They even pulled their first repeal vote in the House. But they didn’t quit -- and neither did we. nytimes.com/2017/03/24/us/… 3/

Trumpers - when you get your huge increases in healthcare premiums in a few months, remember what your Dear Leader told you. He is completely responsible. He gutted it. He with withheld funding. He ended the individual mandate. He caused premiums to skyrocket. Enjoy #TRUMPCARE!
And not only did Trump gut your healthcare coverage, and cause premiums to skyrocket, he took care of the pharmaceutical companies too. His plan to reduce drug prices was such a con job it caused pharma company stocks to skyrocket along with the prices they charge for their drugs
Drug prices are rising faster than ever before and insurance companies have already requested premium increases ranging from 20-50%. I bet you Trumpers never realized racism could be this expensive. Now you can legitimately refer to your racism as "economic anxiety." #TRUMPCARE

We are 527 days into this Congress.

Do not lose track of the recent Republican actions (or lack thereof) and their consequences. Thread ⬇️:

THREAD: OK, let’s talk about this again. 1/

nytimes.com/2018/02/19/hea…
There have been many attacks on the #ACA from the GOP over the years, and many of these have undermined, sabotaged and weakened it. Two of the biggest and most damaging attacks were the #RiskCorridorMassacre (spearheaded by @marcorubio) and the mandate repeal. 2/
The #RiskCorridorMassacre led or contributed to a domino effect of over a dozen insurers going belly-up, kicking over 800K off their policies, reducing competition, putting hundreds out of work and causing mass confusion while driving up rates. acasignups.net/16/08/31/retur… 3/

I retweet stupid Trumpies.

Why?

UNENLIGHTENED TRUMPIES ARE THE PERSONIFICATION OF STUPIDITY!

See them, acknowledge the lunacy, retweet, disengage, and move back to reality. Hope to never see or hear from the idiots again!

If you want to play along, here is the actual Full Text of Tax Plan aka #GOPTaxScam I am going to start reading and commenting follow if you want thread 1/? docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/…
If you acquire a new home, you can only deduct $750,000 in interest, compared to $1,000,000.00 before. This could impact many homes in California, NY, and in a lot of urban areas that vote Democrat. #TrumpTax Plan 2/?
The #StudentLoan interest deduction will remain. Because they did not repeal all of the #EstateTax they just raised the exemption from 5 million to 10 million. #GOPTaxPlan 3/?

I feel like this is an episode of #RickandMorty, but we have to do a sequel to first #TwitterStorm now with 280 characters. I will be going through this #GOPRiot where they loot middle-America. So the thread begins here. 1/?
Not that the #GOP cares about #DACA or #undocumented families. But they use #SEC11022 to not allow undocumented parents to receive a tax credit for their children. These is cruel unjust and unAmerican. 2/?
#Sec11023 With the language to repeal the #JohnsonAmendment contained in the house amendment they have allowed an increase of cash contributions to #Charity as a means to funnel the money to #GOP candidates in a tax free fashion. This is not what Jesus would do or want. 3/\?

I have worked as an underwriter, provider contractor & actuarial in the healthcare insurance industry for 30 years. Trump's EO is a LIE! /1
Selling policies across state lines will not do a damn thing. Georgia has offered this for 5 years & not 1 insurer has offered a plan. /2
This is because insurance is based on a shared risk pool. This means that people who have high healthcare costs are in the same plan as /3

#GrahamCassidy health care repeal would be devastating for millions of Americans & we cannot let it pass. Here are a few of the reasons why:
1) It ends Medicaid expansion, which experts have called the #1 tool at our disposal to combat the opioid crisis
2) It caps and cuts Medicaid for seniors and people who experience disabilities – putting community-based care programs at risk

Republicans will try to ram through their health care repeal without knowing how many Americans it will hurt.
By selling junk plans & slashing Medicaid, #GrahamCassidy:

Rips coverage from tens of millions of working families

Health care costs ↑
Eliminates protections for pre-existing conditions

Imposes an age tax on those 50+

Opposed by major medical & patient groups

I oppose #GrahamCassidy bill because RI would lose $625M in health care funding. Will Senators in states facing massive cuts do the same?
Will @lisamurkowski & @SenDanSullivan oppose $255M in cuts for Alaska under #GrahamCassidy bill? cbpp.org/research/healt…
Will @SenJohnMcCain & @JeffFlake oppose $1.6B in cuts for Arizona under #GrahamCassidy bill? cbpp.org/research/healt…
