HEALTHCARE IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT THAT WE ALL DESERVE NOW
Jump to today’s actions:
Adequate healthcare is a basic human right. We all deserve to know that we can get care for ourselves and our families throughout our lives, including during a pandemic.
But this administration and this Senate leadership has a vision of healthcare driven only by profit.
Republicans produced no platform for the 2020 election. Their policies will be dictated by Trump. That means:
Destroying the ACA and the loss of healthcare coverage for millions
Damaging the USPS - and those who depend on it for prescriptions
Protecting companies from liability for inadequate COVID-19 protections
Preventing the CDC and other federal agencies from adequately dealing with this pandemic
Considering our current COVID-19 death rate acceptable.
The published Democratic platform means:
Expanding the ACA
Eliminating junk healthcare insurance with limited coverage and pre-existing condition exclusions
Protecting and expanding Medicaid
Protecting workers rights to safe workplaces
Protecting the USPS
Enacting the HEROES Act which makes protection, testing, and treatment more accessible and provides assistance to local governments and health worker.
In 67 days, your vote can make your choice heard. Today, use your voice to tell your MOC’s to protect the Post Office and pass the HEROES Act now.
