On Monday or Wednesday, the new Congressional Budget Office score will be released about the Trumpcare bill that the House passed. A 13-member (all men) Senate group is drafting a version that will be equally as bad. Pat Toomey is part of this group. Senator Casey has told us that only we the constituents can stop this.
The GOP healthcare bill is a tax bill disguised as a healthcare bill. It will be the largest transfer of resources from the poor and middle class to the super rich in American history. People making $300 million dollars per year will get a $7 million tax break. The poor, sick, middle class, and elderly lose Medicaid, important patient protections, quality healthcare (both privately bought and employer bought), and jobs in the healthcare industry.
Specific steps to fight:
1. Write letters to the local newspapers and to Toomey and tell your personal story how you will be affected.
2. Call Toomey nonstop and tell your personal story.
We need to object as loudly as we can to Senator Toomey. He has expressed support for funding caps to Medicaid which would end Medicaid as an entitlement.
