Enough with #Horseface and DNA tests. Midterms are 3 weeks from today. Time to focus on, say, healthcare
1. Trump is currently forcing "junk plans" that *do not* cover protections for pre-existing conditions while at the same time pressuring the court to destroy those protections
2. Trump and @GOP have proposed cutting over $2 trillion from Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to pay for the #GOPTaxScam designed for the rich.
3. Since taking control of the House, @GOP has voted over 65 times to destroy the Affordable Care Act. If they retain control, you can bet they will move to repeal our health care. #ProtectOurCare
4.@GOP is waging a court battle to dismantle these protections, putting in dire peril the health care of 130 million Americans with health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, cancer, mental illness or substance abuse. #ProtectOurCare
5. @GOP voted to allow insurance companies to charge older Americans up to 5 times more than younger people, no matter how healthy they are. Now, older Americans are feeling the brutal pain of higher health costs from Republicans’ health care sabotage and rising RX costs
.@TheDemocrats believe that healthcare is a right for all Americans, which is why they spearheaded the passage of the historic ACA in 2010. Under @TeamPelosi & House Dems,over 5 million seniors have saved over $3 billion on the crippling cost of prescription drugs.
Thanks to @TeamPelosi & Dems,over 100 million Americans are no longer slapped w/a lifetime limit on their coverage;130 million more,including 17 million kids,are no longer denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition. Over 2.5 million young peeps have access to healthcare
.@TeamPelosi & @TheDemocrats know Americans are suffering from the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs. That's why they have a plan to reduce the cost of prescription drugs by cracking down on pharmaceutical price gouging that increases consumers’ drug prices for no reason.
.@TheDemocrats' healthcare plan also includes giving Medicare Part D the ability to negotiate lower drug prices, and calls for real transparency for excessive drug price increases.
As for the plan of the @GOP? More distraction.
