We came to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers on Valentines Day asking her to have a heart for the tens of thousands of people in our community who rely on the Affordable Care Act for their health care. Now, Cathy is the ONLY Represenative from Washington to have voted FOR Trumpcare.
73, 276 Medicaid Expansion enrollees stand to lose their insurance as the result of her support for the ACHA. Many, if not all, of these folks have no other way of getting health insurance!
Our hearts are broken now that she’s sided with billionaires and President Trump and voted for the ACHA. The ACHA will strip our healthcare away from us all to essentially give a tax cut to the wealthiest Americans. So we’re having a bake sale to buy her a much-needed conscience!
This is a joint action of PJALS, SEIU 1199NW, SEIU 775, the Spokane Regional Labor Council, Greater Spokane Progress, Fuse, and other organizations. All welcome!
We’ll continue to speak out and call on the Senate to reject tax cuts for billionaires and to instead put patients first by ensuring everyone in our community has care. That means no cuts to Medicaid, and no rollbacks to care. We’d like to thank Senators Cantwell and Murray for their leadership on this issue and ask that they continue to be champions on protecting the ACA. Please don’t go breaking our hearts like Cathy!
