In the last week, donations to the GOP have sharply increased. Immigration & nationalism are the misnomers being used for racism.

How do I know that? Because misinformation about immigrants is being repeated again and again as they bet on us being dymb enough to believe it!

So let’s be clear about the facts vs the misinformation:

1) Immigration stimulates the economy! See the graphic above. 👆👆🏻👆🏼👆🏽👆🏾👆🏿

2) Immigrants pay taxes! They are not claiming 10 yrs of no taxes due to losing millions in bad business desls.

2/
3) Immigrants drive up wages for the rest of us. When someon occupies the first rung on the later that creates more supervisory positions and more opporunities for advancement.

Immigrants buy clothes, groceries, homes, furniture, cars, etc.

So often when a lot of misinformation is being used to scare people it is a smokescreen.

What issue does the GOP NOT want you discussing with your neighbors as we approach midterms?

#Healthcare.

Whether you are a fan of ACA or not here are some realities to keep in mind:

There are marketplaces that continue to function well for consumers.

Some do not. All the talk of ending ACA and ending mandated coverage played a big role in insurance companies pulling out.

5/
Also with Trump in office and the GOP in Congress the insurance companies saw an opportunity to return to the huge profitability off of people’s illnesses they enjoyed before ACA.

The huge corporate tax cuts we will be paying for over the next decade....

6/
... was the reward. So once again insurance companies are getting richer at your expense.

So are you going to fight back by voting!

The GOP are firing up their troops over immigration.

Ignore them and have the conversation about healthcare!

It matters! #GOTV
