Trump's admin has made life exceedingly difficult for people like me who are fighting #cancer & dealing with extreme medical costs.

Obama said in 2009 that he hated watching his mother forced to work to pay bills as she fought for her life.

Many of us are still doing this.
Now Trump wants to make yet another critic of #ACA--the only buffer sick & #disabled Americans have until we get #UHC--head of HHS.

#AlexAzar is an actual lobbyist for #BigPharma.
And cut his legal teeth--he's a lawyer--working for #KenStarr investigating the Clintons.
Anyone who thinks sick/#disabled people are going to get a fair shake under this presidency aren't thinking clearly. And while I know we have more Russia news and
more sexual abuse claims today, this appointment impacts EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN WHO IS NOT RICH and it's barely news.
The stress on sick/#disabled people and their families is immense. It cannot be ignored. Just tonight @SherrodBrown is talking on #inners about how there will be yet another pass at repealing #ACA. This fight is not over.
So-called #TaxReform is really just about backdoor cuts to services to the middle-class, working-class and poor. None of us will see a tax cut. All we will see is more cuts to #Medicaid. Everyone's taxes are going up while we lose ESSENTIAL healthcare benefits.
So #TheResistance has to keep Russia on the side--that's going to be going on through 2020--and get back on the phones to your senators to ask them to block #AlexAzar. Trump says he'll get us a good deal on drugs.

He won't.
1 in 5 Americans has a #disability according to the CDC.…
Everyone has a family member who has a disability--physical or mental.
We all need access to medical care.

#AlexAzar doesn't think govt should do that.
#alexAzar has already worked in #HHS for George Bush. He was confirmed by the Senate as Deputy Sect of HHS.

In his role in the past ten years at #EliLilly, Azar successfully saved the company millions in lawsuits.

Prices for drugs rose substantially under Azar's leadership
Is this the person you want to head #HHS?

The fact that Azar's worked for HHS before is what Trump believes will get him an easy confirmation. But America didn't have #ACA protections in 2005 to 2007 when Azar was deputy.

Nor in 2001 when he was General Counsel for HHS.
Look hard at #AlexAzar's history.
If you think his background investigating the Clintons isn't part of Trump's agenda, think again.
If you think a president and lobbyist for a major pharmaceutical company is a good choice for the person protecting our healthcare, think again.
You don't have to be sick now or #disabled now to know that you will need #ACA until we get full #UHC.

Remember that everyone willing to be part of the Trump admin accepts and approves Trump.

You deluded yourselves about Kelly, Mattis & McMaster.
Don't do it about Azar.
