Yet another organization is coming out in opposition to TrumpCare.

Governors across the country are in agreement: Republicans should not vote on TrumpCare this week. 

June 23, 2017

We’ve noticed that some outlets are reporting that individuals with pre-existing conditions will now be taken care of under the Senate’s TrumpCare bill.

June 23, 2017

Hmm, who wants to write a bill that only 16% of Americans agree with?

June 22, 2017

Now that is someone thinking of working families.

Look we get it. You are super busy—searching for drafts of #TrumpCare, phones ringing off the hook…

Americans don’t want to lose their health coverage?

Best summary we’ve seen of how no one has seen Senate Republicans’ TrumpCare bill

Things on the rise this summer: the temperature and opposition to TrumpCare. In a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, only 35 percent of voters approve of the House TrumpCare bill, which doesn’t bode well for Senate Republicans as they prepare to release their bill tomorrow (after weeks of hiding it behind closed doors).

Another day, another poll showing the majority of Americans oppose President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

A look at this morning’s previews of Speaker Ryan’s “major speech” on tax reform shows it will be light on specifics and substance.

our ever-helpful Democratic Whip press shop thought we’d send you a few questions to ask Speaker Ryan at his tax reform speech this afternoon (you’re welcome)

June 13, 2017

Republicans blew past their April 15 deadline months ago, and they are still haven’t proposed a budget for fiscal year 2018. What’s holding them up? Their deep internal divisions, of course. 

June 13, 2017

A look at the headlines today shows Republicans in the Senate are following the lead of their House colleagues on TrumpCare. 

June 12, 2017

Oh come on.

Today’s GOP quote of the day is a good reminder for our Republican friends that budget/shut down/debt limit brinksmanship hasn’t gotten them anywhere in the past.

Doesn’t matter how you spin it, Senate GOP. A seven-year rollback of the Medicaid expansion would still mean that millions of Americans would lose health coverage.

June 5, 2017

Business leaders, national security officials, and public health experts all support a global response to climate change – and so do the American people.

As the House and Senate reconvene this week, it seems the District Work Period did not go very well for the GOP, who once again got an earful from their constituents who oppose TrumpCare. Of course, that should come as no surprise following the latest CBO score that confirmed 23 million Americans will lose coverage and premiums will spike for millions of others.

Bad news for Republicans: TrumpCare isn't getting any more popular.

May 23, 2017

Another day, another #BrokenPromise from President Trump. In fact, his budget breaks a lot of promises he made to the American people – most importantly, the promise that he is fighting for them.

Need further proof that Republicans’ request to delay their cost-sharing reductions lawsuit will harm consumers?
