Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 3.25.17
Health Insurance Reform On the evening of Friday, March 24, the House of Representatives leadership determined they could not get enough votes for the American Health Care Act. The AHCA was withdrawn and that bill is dead. Accordingly for the time being, Obamacare will remain as the law of the land. However, after the dust settles, and we all have a chance to take a deep breath and reflect on our country's needs, I believe we need to return to working for health insurance reform. Republicans are in agreement that Obamacare must be repealed. However, there are disagreements as to which is the best way to replace it. The discussion can get messy, but this is the result of giving everyone opportunity to read and understand what’s in the bill. This is a stark contrast to the way the Democrats did it when they shoved Obamacare through. With little known about the content, Majority Leader Pelosi directed them to “pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Instead, America is witnessing the spirited debate and clash of ideas anticipated by the Founding Fathers when they established the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill's failure is undoubtedly a setback in our efforts to fix America’s health insurance system by repealing and replacing Obamacare, but it is not complete defeat. Obamacare has failed. Copays are higher, deductibles are higher, insurance rates are higher. Just because you have a piece of paper that says you have health insurance doesn't mean you have adequate health care. Because of this, I believe we have to repeal Obamacare and this bill would have been a step in the right direction to replace it. It was not a perfect bill, or even a great bill, but it was a good first step and there can be no real change without a first step. Ronald Reagan’s Chief of Staff, James Baker, said President Reagan used to tell him, “Jim, I'd rather get 80 percent of what I want than go over the cliff with my flag flying.” I agree. While I had decided to get the 80% included in the AHCA, many Republicans felt the bill either went too far or not far enough. Unfortunately, because of this, some of my colleagues decided to go over the cliff with their flag flying. Interestingly, these colleagues came from both the moderate wing and the very Conservative wing of the Republican party. That being said, the biggest culprit in preventing the compromises needed to resolve the differences within the House Republican Conference is the arcane Senate rules. Both the special rules related to budget reconciliation and the Senate's modern filibuster/cloture/hold rules, make it impossible to have a smooth transition and also fix all the problems at once. The Senate’s reconciliation rules allow a parliamentary challenge which can discard a House bill that is noncompliant with the strict requirements. The 60 vote requirement put in place by the modern filibuster/cloture/hold rule will be nearly impossible to meet with any replacement bill not done under reconciliation because Democrats refuse to consider replacement options. They currently hold 46 seats. Despite the clear message from American voters to repeal Obamacare and the increasing evidence highlighting Obamacare’s failures, not one single Democrat was willing to join Republicans in voting for the AHCA. They are united in defense of President Obama, even when they know his plan doesn’t work. The Democrats fought the AHCA tooth and nail. During the committee markup, Congressman Sarbanes (D-MD) said, “Make no mistake this proposal will effectively destroy the health insurance exchanges.” His comment is confirmation that the AHCA did in fact essentially repeal Obamacare. The Democrats believed if we couldn’t pass the AHCA, Obamacare, even though flawed, will be here to stay. And while I hope that isn’t so, they may be right. I believed this replacement plan was better than sticking with Obamacare, but since we couldn’t get the support, we must move on to other replacement plans. I will continue to work for the people of the Ninth to bring true improvements to the health insurance and health care systems. After a short weekend to catch my breath, I will be back in Washington to continue working for solutions. If you have questions, concerns, or comments, feel free to contact my office.

Weekly Update: The Wittman Women
In honor of Women’s History Month, I reflected on the wonderful Wittman women in my life. They had and continue to have a profound impact on me, teaching me important lessons through their kindness, strength, and tenacity. My Mother-Genia Wittman My mother had such a strong influence on my life, shaping my early years through her example of discipline and hard work. She was very much an objective-driven person, focused on getting things done. She constantly pushed me, specifically in the realm of education. Every year I was in school, she would teach my summer courses, setting the curriculum herself. She was a caring person, a person of principle, a strong woman. My Wife-Kathryn Sisson Wittman I met Kathryn almost 40 years ago at Virginia Tech, where we both attended college. And ever since she has been the strength in my life. She is a strong, focused woman who is relentless in her work and in her love for our family. As an elementary school teacher for 37 years, I know there will be a special place in heaven for her. She loves teaching and the connections she's made with her now three generations of students. Supporting my career in public office takes a tremendous amount of sacrifice, and she has done that lovingly and with a smile. She is a fantastic mom and has done saint-like work in parenting and grand parenting. I aspire to be a portion of what she is, and I still fall short. I don’t know where I would be without her-certainly not at any level of success. My Daughter-Devon Wittman Gooch My daughter Devon is just like her mom. She is very driven, always needing something to do. As a parent, she pushes my grandchildren to take advantage of all the opportunities presented to them. She is always on the go, whether it is taking them to ballet, soccer, softball, or baseball. Devon is my sounding board, but more importantly she is always honest about how she thinks I’m doing, and how I can improve. She is goal-oriented, talented, and I love her dearly. My Granddaughter-Morgan Gooch I see my mother, my wife, and my daughter in my granddaughter Morgan. At only 9 years of age, she holds a high standard for herself and others. Her teachers will give her reading assignments and when she spends the night at our house, she will come back after a ballet class, eat her dinner, finish her daily homework and then at 8 o’clock say, “I have to read these books.” And trust me, she is not going to stop until she checks that off the list. She is a gregarious, loving young lady with a bright future. I am so proud of her and enjoy watching her grow up before my eyes. These wonderful Wittman women have shaped who I am, aided me, and challenged me. This Women’s History Month, I am blessed to call them family. Unsubscribe: wittman.house.gov/Forms/EmailSignup/

E-News From Senator Dean Heller
Week in Review During the past week in Washington D.C., we tackled many issues that are important to Nevada. I also had the opportunity to meet with constituents and local officials from all around the state to discuss issues—ranging from health care to water to higher education— that impact our local communities. On Monday, the Judiciary Committee began confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. I look forward to voting for Judge Gorsuch on the Senate floor because I believe he is not only exceptionally qualified, but I strongly agree with his belief that judges must interpret the law and our Constitution as written. He’s also a fellow Westerner, who understands our values and the important issues that affect our state. He would make an excellent Supreme Court Justice, and I am going to work to see that he is confirmed. On Wednesday, I spoke with members from multiple Veterans Service Organization at a Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and highlighted issues affecting Nevada’s veterans. For example, I brought up my concerns surrounding the William Bee Ririe Hospital’s expiring contract and my work with the VA to secure a public forum with the Ely community to discuss how the VA’s decision will impact veteran care and to ensure the VA continues to provide quality and timely care for Ely veterans. I also followed up on a conversation I had with a constituent during a telephone town hall on Tuesday. Audrey and her husband asked me about “Blue Water” veterans and when they will get the assistance they deserve. During Wednesday’s hearing, I urged my colleagues to support a bill, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act, which I cosponsored. The Senate also continued its work to confirm the President's nominees to key positions in his administration. On Thursday, we voted to confirm David Friedman as the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. I look forward to working with Mr. Friedman, and I’m hopeful that legislation I introduced to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will become a reality.   As always, I am honored to be your voice in Washington, D.C. Please reach out to my office at any time. Your feedback is essential, and I appreciate the opportunity to hear your concerns and ideas for solutions to challenges we’re facing in Nevada. I encourage you to visit my social media pages and stay up to date on my work in Nevada and Washington.  In the News Ceremony celebrates Moapa solar project in Southern Nevada Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch tries to rise above partisan rancor at hearing VIDEO: Heller Discusses Promoting Nevada Tourism    Click here to watch This week, I talked with high school students participating in UNLV’s Upward Bound program.   Take Action Follow Senator Heller on Facebook On Twitter @SenDeanHeller And on YouTube *If you are no longer interested in receiving updates, please do not respond to this email, as it is an unattended e-mail address.  Please click the link below if you would like to be removed from future e-mails.

[Trumpcare] Not extreme enough for GOP
Patricia, President Trump and Paul Ryan failed. Their health care bill -- the one that Paul Ryan has been talking about since 2010 -- was so extreme that they couldn't even get it through the House where they hold a majority. But we can't celebrate this victory too long. Trump and Ryan will try to pass the bill again, with just a few minor adjustments that they think will get more Republicans on board. Make sure we're ready when they come back with Trumpcare 2.0. Donate $3 now: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170324_email_Trumpcare From the get-go, EMILY's List women have been fighting this extreme legislation, which included defunding Planned Parenthood and taking away health insurance from 24 million Americans. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi spread the word that Trumpcare would destroy nearly two million jobs. Rep. Maxine Waters called the bill "merciless" and promised to fight it with every ounce of her strength. And when Republican Pat Roberts made a snarky comment to a reporter about coverage for women's health care, Rep. Jackie Speier called him out. Our women are in this fight to win it, and we have to be too. Donate $3 now to help send more champions like Nancy, Maxine, and Jackie to Congress to fight against Trump's agenda and protect women and families: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170324_email_Trumpcare Thanks, Jess O'Connell Executive Director, EMILY's List

I wanted to share with you the statement <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx ley-iq&crop=18242.116280256.20025322.7791867&report_id=&redirect=https%3 a%2f%2fwww.merkley.senate.gov%2fnews%2fpress-releases%2fmerkley-followin g-trumpcare-failure-republicans-should-abandon-plans-to-destroy-health-c are-and-instead-work-to-make-health-care-more-affordable&redir_log=02765 5397481365> I released: "Following today's TrumpCare failure, it's time for Republicans to cease and desist in their plans to destroy American health care. Rather than continuing to try to twist arms to pass a plan that will raise costs, lower coverage, and take health care away from 24 million Americans, they should drop this destructive strategy and instead focus on what Americans actually want us to work on: lowering costs and making health care more affordable for working families across America. "Republicans have already done great damage to the health care system, and need to fix the problems they've created. There are plenty of ideas already on the table that would make health care more affordable for working families, from a public option, to prescription drug negotiations, to offering older Americans the chance to buy into Medicare. I'm happy to work with anyone, from either side of the aisle, to explore these or any other ideas that would improve health care for working Americans. But first, Republican leaders must fully absorb the message sent loud and clear by grassroots America and echoed in today's failure: Stop messing with our health care." Thank you for your critical role in our democracy. Let's keep up the fight!

I believe our country deserves a smarter, less wasteful approach to border security <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f outreach.senate.gov%2fiqextranet%2fiqClickTrk.aspx%3f%26cid%3dSen_Carper %26crop%3d18081.19715690.11916830.15269090%26report_id%3d%26redirect%3dh ttps%253a%252f%252fmedium.com%252f%2540SenatorCarper%252fthe-american-pe ople-deserve-smarter-less-wasteful-border-security-36d1b2c0147f%2523.oz1 yw9ria%26redir_log%3d613574388466837&redir_log=271008937442045> . Unfortunately, President Trump's border wall is a wasteful endeavor that would cost us far more than any benefits it will provide. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/Borderdrone jpg> For some time now, the president has promised us that a wall along our entire southern border will solve all of our problems, and that Mexico will pay for it. But the truth is, a wall won't solve anything, and Mexico won't pay a penny. You don't have to take my word for it. Just last week, President Trump requested nearly $3 billion in supplemental funding at the border for this year alone�nearly half of which would be used to build the wall. A memo from the president's budget office called for unprecedented cuts to vital agencies such as the Coast Guard and Transportation Security Administration to continue to pay for wall construction in 2018. That just doesn't make any sense. The Coast Guard provides helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and fast boats for our southern border that are vital to interdicting drugs headed for our communities. TSA deploys teams of agents to patrol our airports and mass transit hubs for suspicious activity, looking to prevent attacks like the one we saw in Brussels. To build their wall, the Trump administration intends to rob Peter to pay Paul � cutting funds from programs that have proven their worth in the years since September 11th in order to deliver on a campaign promise. As the former Chairman and then Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, I have long supported smart, effective solutions that will help Customs and Border Protection agents achieve their mission of making our border more secure. That's why over the past years I've made several trips to our southern and northern borders and spoken to Department of Homeland Security officials on the ground. On each trip, the officials I encountered would tell me again and again that technology is the key to securing our border. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/BreachFence 2.jpg> This week, I again attended a hearing <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f outreach.senate.gov%2fiqextranet%2fiqClickTrk.aspx%3f%26cid%3dSen_Carper %26crop%3d18081.19715690.11916830.15269090%26report_id%3d%26redirect%3dh ttps%253a%252f%252fwww.hsgac.senate.gov%252fhearings%252fperspectives-fr om-the-dhs-frontline-evaluating-staffing-resources-and-requirements%26re dir_log%3d488456964692855&redir_log=67579182262048> where representatives of our Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents and officers, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers discussed the challenges facing their teams each day. Not one of the witnesses testified that erecting a border wall would solve our immigration challenges. Instead, they requested additional funding for customs officials and inspectors in order to facilitate trade and stop drugs at our ports of entry. President Trump's executive orders and budget proposal do nothing to address that need. President Trump's plan to build a wall is also an expensive and short-sighted substitute for addressing the root causes of why people come here in the first place. Continued efforts to secure our southern border will be wasted if we don't also work with our neighbors in Central America to address root causes of migration to the United States. In the countries of the Northern Triangle of Central America � Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador � widespread <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f www.carper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2f_cache%2ffiles%2f0d5438ad-7cfb-4afe-be3 f-f94a01546f6a%2fstronger-neighbors---stronger-borders.pdf&redir_log=166 360234671861> violence, lack of economic opportunity and lack of rule of law lead many Central Americans to undertake the dangerous journey to our southern border <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f www.carper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2f_cache%2ffiles%2f0d5438ad-7cfb-4afe-be3 f-f94a01546f6a%2fstronger-neighbors---stronger-borders.pdf&redir_log=166 360234671861> . <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f www.carper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2f_cache%2ffiles%2f0d5438ad-7cfb-4afe-be3 f-f94a01546f6a%2fstronger-neighbors---stronger-borders.pdf&redir_log=166 360234671861> Until conditions in the region start to improve, these desperate families will continue to flee. In 2015, these three countries developed a multi-lateral agreement, called the "Alliance for Prosperity," to improve social and economic conditions in the region. The following year, Congress agreed to provide some funding to support the countries' efforts, at the urging of former Vice President Biden. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/HondurasPre s.jpg> Earlier this week, I met with President Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras to discuss his administration's continued efforts to uphold the Alliance for Prosperity. He shared with me promising signs that his administration is working to root out the corruption, violence and dire economic conditions that compel so many of its citizens to flee to the United States, including initiatives to crack down on drug trafficking, expand public education and jumpstart steady economic growth by investing in roads, bridges, ports and airports. Unfortunately, President Trump's proposed budget would cut needed assistance to the region. If President Trump is serious about securing the border and stemming the tide of migrants entering our country illegally, he should work with Congress to address the root causes of migration, on comprehensive immigration reform that's fair and humane, and on smart and effective investments to our border security. Instead of wasting time and taxpayer dollars on an ineffective wall, I hope the president, and others in Congress will join me in these efforts in the months to come. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/TomCarper.j pg> Stay Connected with Senator Carper Email Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2femail-senator-carper&redir_log=7 48783626634436> Flickr Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.flickr.com%2fphotos%2f55205960%40N08%2f&redir_log=380993903065259> Twitter Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2ft witter.com%2fsenatorcarper&redir_log=603740291702232> Facebook Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.facebook.com%2ftomcarper&redir_log=432865730981236> YouTube Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.youtube.com%2fsenatorcarper&redir_log=91856966909260> RSS Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2frss%2ffeed&redir_log=07663914815 9349> Washington, D.C. 513 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510 Phone: (202) 224-2441 Fax: (202) 228-2190 Wilmington 301 North Walnut Street, Suite 102L-1 Wilmington, DE 19801-3974 Phone: (302) 573-6291 Fax: (302) 573-6434 Dover 500 West Loockerman Street, Suite 470 Dover, DE 19904 Phone: (302) 674-3308 Fax: (302) 674-5464 Georgetown 12 The Circle Georgetown, DE 19947 Phone: (302) 856-7690 Fax: (302) 856-3001 Home <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2f&redir_log=721925607444223> | Privacy Policy <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2fprivacy-policy&redir_log=9111991 35533396> | Unsubscribe <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2funsubscribe&redir_log=6609881566 17376> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/iqtrk.gif rop=18035.19764576.11916814.15290910>

The Durbin Report: Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch Has a Troubling Record
The Durbin Report: A message from Senator Richard J. Durbin <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenDurbin/Website_head er_3.png> Fellow Illinoisan, This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings for President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. I grilled Judge Gorsuch on his dubious record on civil, human, and workers' rights, and asked him to cite specific examples to justify his claims that, as a judge, he's stood up for the rights of working people, minorities, women, and LGBTQ Americans. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx rop=15236.12463860.9124613.7246002&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww facebook.com%2fSenatorDurbin%2fvideos%2f1289127027789634%2f&redir_log=2 46733573637392> Click here to watch me question President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Judge Gorsuch. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx rop=15236.12463860.9124613.7246002&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww facebook.com%2fSenatorDurbin%2fvideos%2f1289127027789634%2f&redir_log=2 46733573637392> I also pressed Judge Gorsuch to explain his efforts to preserve the legality of torture techniques like waterboarding, his questionable stance on maternity leave, his unfeeling and poorly-reasoned dissent in the case of truck driver Alphonse Maddin, who lost his job after refusing to stay with his broken trailer in life-threatening weather conditions, and his ruling in favor of corporations over people in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius. During the hearing, the Supreme Court, in an opinion authored by Chief Justice Roberts, unanimously ruled that the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals' � the Court that Judge Gorsuch currently sits on - standard for what educational benefit a school is required to provide students with disabilities is inconsistent with the law. The timing of the decision was striking because the Court alone determines when it announces its rulings. Chief Justice Roberts' opinion specifically notes that "[w]hen all is said and done, a student offered an educational program providing 'merely more than de minimis' progress from year to year can hardly be said to have been offered an education at all." According to the National Education Association's analysis of 10th Circuit jurisprudence in Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) cases, Judge Gorsuch established the "merely... 'more than de minimis'" standard in a 2008 opinion. Thus far, Judge Gorsuch's answers to these critical questions have failed to address my serious concerns over his record. President Trump's Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, said that Judge Gorsuch "has the vision of Donald Trump." Make no mistake � when it comes to the treatment of workers, of women who have been victims of discrimination, of people of minority religious faiths, and of our Constitution, I personally do not believe America needs the vision of President Trump represented on the Supreme Court. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx rop=15236.12463860.9124613.7246002&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww facebook.com%2fSenatorDurbin%2fvideos%2f1289127027789634%2f&redir_log=2 46733573637392> Sincerely, Dick Durbin United States Senator <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenDurbin/Website_foot er.PNG> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx rop=15236.12463860.9124613.7246002&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fwww. durbin.senate.gov%2fcontact%2fnewsletter%2funsubscribe&redir_log=0735230 51375425> Click here to open a plain text version of this email <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet//view_newsletter_setup.aspx n_text=Y&link=SenDurbin%2501104212%250103-24-2017%2bSupreme%2bCourt%2bNo minee%2bJudge%2bNeil%2bGorsuch%2bHas%2ba%2bTroubling%2bRecord%250115236. 12463860.9124613.7246002%2501durbin%2540unityfeed.com%2501Friend%2501%25 01%2501> Click here to forward this email <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet//view_newsletter_setup.aspx ard=Y&link=SenDurbin%2501104212%250103-24-2017%2bSupreme%2bCourt%2bNomin ee%2bJudge%2bNeil%2bGorsuch%2bHas%2ba%2bTroubling%2bRecord%250115236.124 63860.9124613.7246002%2501durbin%2540unityfeed.com%2501Friend%2501%2501% 2501> Click here to open this e-mail in its own browser window <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet//view_newsletter_setup.aspx =SenDurbin%2501104212%250103-24-2017%2bSupreme%2bCourt%2bNominee%2bJudge %2bNeil%2bGorsuch%2bHas%2ba%2bTroubling%2bRecord%250115236.12463860.9124 613.7246002%2501durbin%2540unityfeed.com%2501Friend%2501%2501%2501> Click here to comment on this email <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet//view_newsletter_setup.aspx y=Y&link=SenDurbin%2501104212%250103-24-2017%2bSupreme%2bCourt%2bNominee %2bJudge%2bNeil%2bGorsuch%2bHas%2ba%2bTroubling%2bRecord%250115236.12463 860.9124613.7246002%2501durbin%2540unityfeed.com%2501Friend%2501%2501%25 01>

What today's vote means
Friend -- In the dark days back in 2010 when everyone was saying we should give up on trying to pass health care reform, you said no. You and Barack Obama. You had fought too hard for too long to wave a white flag. One conversation, one person at a time you got the job done -- health care simply wouldn't have happened without you. And Obamacare has delivered. More than 20 million Americans have gained health care, and the uninsured rate is at a historic low. It gave middle- class families the security and peace of mind that they hadn't had before, and lives were saved because of the changes you helped bring about. All of the phone calls and the neighborhood meetings, chipping in a few dollars when you could, raising your voice at town halls -- you helped make Obamacare a reality. Add your name right now, and say you'll commit to keep fighting: my.ofa.us/Dont-Tread-On-My-Obamacare The night Obamacare passed, I attended the vote-watch party in the Roosevelt Room at the White House. I remember the feeling of relief and pride that filled that room when the final vote was announced. But a lot of us didn't realize that passing the law was the easy part. Over the next seven years there was a cynical and well-funded campaign designed to confuse, mislead, and play games with people's health care. They made up ridiculous lies about death panels, repeatedly tried to repeal the law, and even challenged it all the way to the Supreme Court. But when it comes to health care reform, there was no more cynical move than the one we've witnessed over the past couple of weeks. The new administration and Speaker Paul Ryan tried to rush through a terrible piece of legislation that the majority of Americans oppose. Their bill would have stripped health care away from millions of Americans and ended Medicaid as we know it. It would have taken us back to the days when insurance companies could choose not to cover essential health benefits like maternity or mental health coverage. But the same tireless advocacy once again accomplished something amazing -- something that was unimaginable a couple months ago, back when Obamacare opponents were just waiting for inauguration to cross the Ts and dot the Is of repeal. Today, because of people like you, repeal efforts were dealt a serious blow. Today's a day that reaffirms that when we stand up for what's right, we can overcome remarkable odds. That when we organize, speak out, and take action, Washington hears our message loud and clear. But let's be clear, opponents of Obamacare will not back down for good. They will continue to do everything in their power to chip away at and undermine the law, regardless of who it hurts. There's a lot of work to do ahead of us, but now we know we're ready. Say you'll keep fighting: my.ofa.us/Dont-Tread-On-My-Obamacare The movement is alive and well. Thank you for continuing the fight. Messina Jim Messina Co-Chair Organizing for Action

Anne, this is a short rant about what happened today. But please read it. It's important.

Anne, I'll keep this short and to the point: Trump is forcing House Republicans to vote today on Trumpcare and the bill may not have the votes. Why? Because the bill, which would throw 24 million Americans off their healthcare in the next 10 years, isn't extreme enough for some members of their own party.

That's right: Trumpcare isn't extreme enough for them.

Republicans had eight years to come up with a plan to replace Obamcare, and they got nothing. Their "plan" is just to give a massive tax cut to the rich and call it "healthcare."
