Money shouldn't be the end-all-be-all in deciding who represents us in Congress or what policies govern our country. Yet, just this week we not only finished one of the most expensive Congressional elections in history, topping out at more than $55 million, we also finally saw the Republican's “health care” bill which drops millions from our health care system to give tax breaks to the ultra wealthy.
Our Revolution groups across the country are actively fighting against the influence of money in politics. Our efforts have propelled progressive candidates backed by people, not corporate money, to victory in Philadelphia, New York, California, Iowa, and communities across the country. Together we are fighting for the issues that will benefit all, not just a lucky few. These races and issue campaigns are just the beginning of a political revolution that puts people over profits.
Now, our fight heads to the Senate as they consider a cruel plan that would kick more than 23 million people off of their current health care plans to give tax breaks to the very rich. We saw an example of this heartlessness yesterday when Capitol Police dragged away protesters in wheelchairs out of the U.S. Capitol for voicing their opposition to this cruel bill.
Thank you for being active in this fight. This week alone, the Revolution flooded the telephone lines of the Senate with more than 7,200 calls in opposition to the treacherous health care plan. But, the fight is far from over. We need your support to stop the Senate attack on health care and put our stake in the ground for Medicare for All. Please make a $5 contribution to Our Revolution today to help us fight back against the Republican plan to destroy our health care system.
Billions of dollars from the wealthiest people in this country are flooding the political process and working Americans are losing out. It's clear that our system is broken when a health care bill would end access to maternity and mental health care but give billions to the very rich. The need for real campaign finance reform affects every aspect of our political process including how we fix our health care system.
Our Revolution is organizing in many capacities, but putting the needs of every day people will always come first. We need your support to fight back against the Senate's health care plan and give a voice to every day people. Please chip in $5 to Our Revolution and help us continue the political revolution together.
Thank you for fighting for the progressive values we all believe in. Now is the time for us to come together and stop this unjust assault on the American people.
