The GOP, out of meanness, wants to reverse everything Obama has ever done. Our health care is on the line. As a person with MS I fear that insurances can discriminate against me for preexisting conditions.
From the National Law Center: They’re coming for affordable health coverage—and it’s up to us to defend it.Today, on the Senate floor, some Members of Congress are using the budget process to take the first steps toward repeal of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Make no mistake: repealing this law would be devastating for women’s health. We need your urgent action to protect the health care law right now.
Tell Your Senators Not to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
Step 1: Call 202-224-3121.
Step 2: When you’re connected, say “As your constituent, I urge you NOT to Repeal the Affordable Care Act.”
Step 3: Hang up and repeat for your other Senator.
Want more talking points for your call? We’ve got you covered! Thanks to the health care law:
- Nine in 10 women and girls now have affordable, comprehensive health insurance that meets their needs.
- Insurance companies can’t charge women more than men.
- People can’t be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
- Women now have maternity coverage as a part of essential health benefits.
- 55 million women now have health insurance that gives them no-cost coverage for key preventive services like birth control, mammograms and breastfeeding support.
Tell your Member of Congress to protect all of the progress we’ve made.Access to affordable, lifesaving care is on the line—this is too important for any of us to stay silent. We need to flood the Senate’s phone lines with messages of support for the health care law. It only takes a minute to call, but it can make a difference if your Senators hear from you!We’ll never stop fighting to protect women’s health. Thank you for fighting alongside us.

A real man that has true emotion, cried when he talked about the innocence lost on the day a man with an assault rifle went to the school and shot little kids. Another angry, white dude. At least my president is trying to stop access to guns if you are mentally ill. Soon the day will come when anyone convicted of domestic abuse won’t be able to own a gun. When women are murdered its almost always their men in their lives. Little man big gun deficit. Don’t let the NRA use their money to influence smart, gun safety, why be against sellers checking with law officials to see if the person buying guns has a criminal record? Why so many against that? No one wants to take your guns. Calm down, stand down, Annie go get your gun and put it in your holster. It’s not the wild wild west anymore. Progressive people everywhere stand with our President. Will you?
This is my opinion about the comment Kurt Russell made about not wanting restrictions to buy a gun. sure Kurt Russell is saying no gun control he’s trying to sell his movie “The Hateful Eight” which is filled with gun violence. Have you ever had a mentally ill friend and the thought that they could buy a gun sent shivers down your spine? Don’t you know someone, a neighbor, friend that beats his wife, don’t you think that guy shouldn’t have a gun, as the top way women die from violence is done at the hand of their husbands. Why do so many of these shooting involve, young, white men, who have no job, no girlfriend. The white man in America is experiencing lots of anger as women and people of color are gaining their rights and ability to make money to be independent. These young white guys are doing the killing, angry that white male priveledge is slowing going away. After hundreds of years of male dominance, as a woman i am happy that this is happening. If the white male has to to a back seat for awhile i say bring it on. Look at all the old, white guys in our Congress, trying to turn back the time where they ruled over the rest of us. I think whites (and i am white) are ready for a come up pence, where they don’t have all the power. I say bring it on. It will make the world of so many of us, better and more fair.
Some people shouldn’t have guns, you know them, your neighbor who is abusive to his wife, the road rage guy, and the mentally ill people who don’t get treatment. It’s that simple, no one wants to take away your guns. Haven’t you been watching the news, its out of hand, and it that means some angry white dude can’t get a gun, so be it.
Please no comments from haters, it won’t change a thing. People are evolving and are beginning to learn how to address their anger. If you see any of your friends or neighbors acting out in hate, tell them to get anger management counseling.
Owning a gun should be a priveledge not a right, you all know the people out there who should never own a gun, so why keep saying “They are trying to take away our guns” Not true unless you are one of those hateful people .
I come from a family going back 100 years and none of us ever owned a gun. And we stayed safe.
To be fair to Kurt here is what he said.

A letter from Hillary Clinton:
From my kitchen to yours
A letter from Hillary Clinton”
I wanted you to hear this directly from me:
Yes, I should have used two email addresses, one for personal matters and one for my work at the State Department. Not doing so was a mistake. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility.
It’s important for you to know a few key facts. My use of a personal email account was aboveboard and allowed under the State Department’s rules. Everyone I communicated with in government was aware of it. And nothing I ever sent or received was marked classified at the time.
As this process proceeds, I want to be as transparent as possible. That’s why I’ve provided all of my work emails to the government to be released to the public, and why I’ll be testifying in public in front of the Benghazi Committee later next month.
I know this is a complex story. I could have — and should have — done a better job answering questions earlier. I’m grateful for your support, and I’m not taking anything for granted.
I understand that you may have more questions, and I am going to work to keep answering them. If you want to read more, including my emails themselves, please go here:
Why is CNN giving Trump huge blocks of time? Because he’s a train wreck, you are like an ambulace chaser, running around with your cnn microphone. It’s a shame you give him so much time. oh how funny you lost his signal for a moment had a chance to go in another direction but no you just went back to that fool. Does CNN know how foolish it would be to have this manic be President.”We are going to be good< we are going to change things, all these false promises, with no plan. “I’m rich,” so what, why is this idiot being allowed to make a mockery of our Presidential primary.
The town hall is as big as trumps head. his followers are un evolved, haters, sexists, racists and it shows the under belly of the American people. i am afraid that he will win and he would run rough shot over everything good in our country. He would get rid of Obama care, but has to plan to replace it, he would get rid of the IRS, get ride of all illegal aliens, build a huge wall and thinks Mexico would actually pay for it.
No this guy is nuts, and it panders to the mass of people who are angry, and mean and nasty. Shows the true colors of so many americans. Sad.
