Millennials: surveys say about 55% of you will vote in the midterms, but if you really #GOTV, you could determine this election.

Not an exaggeration. This could be the most important election of your lives, and many key issues are super important to you. Let’s talk.
A thread /1
🗳Want affordable health insurance, with preexisting conditions? No bankruptcy from medical bills?

Dems gave us Obamacare, with zero GOP votes. The GOP voted 70+ times to repeal. They cost insurance of 13 million by repealing the ind mndate. They promise to finish the job. /2
My story. I was a healthy 34 year old until one day I wasn’t. It was before Obamacare had taken effect.

I was insured with a low cost plan, the type the GOP champions as a replacement for Obamacare.

I was financially ruined.
It could happen to you. /3

Mitch McConnell made it clear. If Republicans win the midterms, they will repeal Obamacare, including coverage for preexisting conditions.

The Trump admin is arguing in front of the courts that preexisting conditions should be struck down. /4…
🗳Think racism and bigotry should be things of the past?

Dems gave us the first African American President.

GOP has devolved into a frenzy over refugees. Locked children in cages. Escalated hate and violence with their rhetoric. Defended violent gangs like the Proud Boys. /5
🗳Think women should make decisions over their own bodies? Want access to contraception?

Dems consistently fight for these things.

The GOP has installed activist judges that chip away reproductive rights. They threaten to defund @PPFA, a source of healthcare for millions. /6
🗳Think sexual assault should be taken seriously?

Obama Admin installed guidelines for combatting sexual assault on college campuses.

GOP repealed them when they came to power. They installed an accused attempted rapist on the Supreme Court. They stand with predators. /7
🗳Think education is important? Think college should be affordable?

The Obama Admin cracked down on predatory private colleges fleecing their students for worthless degrees.

Under Betsy DeVos, the GOP Dept of Ed ended those investigations, and hired many of the fraud execs. /8
The Trump admin and Republicans in Congress cannot disguise that they continue to do the bidding of the for-profit college industry, which has saddled working-class students with crushing debt while providing useless degrees, or no degrees at all. /9…
🗳Want real gun violence solutions?

Dems are the only party willing to pursue them. Dems passed an assault weapons ban in the ‘90s. GOP let it expire.

The GOP scoffs at all common sense gun reform. They are bought out by the NRA, refusing solutions 70% of Americans support. /10
🗳Care about America’s standing in the world?

GOP makes us look like shit. Refusing action against foreign Govs attacking our elections. Praising murderous dictators. Withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear treaty. Condoning the brutal murders of journalists and dissidents.
The #ComplicitGop continues to turn a blind eye as Trump supports murderous dictators and thugs for his own financial gain. /12

🗳Think we are in serious danger from climate control?

Obama signed the Paris Accords, real steps to reverse climate change.

The GOP withdrew us from those accords. They side with polluters, relaxing restrictions on emissions from cars and coal plants, asbestos and mercury. /13
The UN says we have 10 years to seriously lower carbon emissions, or we will face certain disaster.

After years of denial, the GOP finally agree. They just claim we can do nothing about it.

They are absolutely wrong and irresponsible. /14

🗳Want to protect LGBT rights?

Dems fought for marriage equality, the end of DODT, and Trans rights.

The GOP has installed activist judges to chip away at LGBT rights. Trump has withdrawn visas for same sex partners of diplomats & ended Fed protection for trans Americans. /15
Trump’s DOJ tells SCOTUS that businesses can legally discriminate against workers based on their gender identity.

It’s 2018. Why can’t they accept the basic humanity of all people?

The GOP embraces discrimination. Out of touch, & cruel. /16

🗳Does truth matter to you?

The GOP has driven us down a path of gaslighting and lies.
“Alternative facts.”

Inconvenient facts are “fake news.”
The free press is the “enemy of the people.”
Relying on propaganda to spread their lies.

That’s not democracy, it’s fascism. /17
Just some of the issues you probably take very seriously. There are many more.

👉The many indictments of top officials in this admin.
👉The GOP assault on voting rights.
👉The GOP assault on peaceful protest.
👉Criminal justice reform.
If you’re reading this, you probably already plan to vote.
What about your friends & family? Do these issues mean enough to you to push them to vote?

Races across the country are worryingly close. You could make the difference!
