Trump’s America…


Today’s Action: Enroll in the ACA and spread the word!

Millions of people have lost their employee-based healthcare as a result of the pandemic. Millions more have lost their coverage simply because they can no longer afford it. All in all, around 14 million people in our country are freshly without insurance as they face a deadly virus.

Thanks to Trump’s relentless attacks on the Affordable Care Act over the past four years and refusal to advertise it, many uninsured people do not even know the ACA is still an option – and even fewer realize it offers generous subsidies to make healthcare affordable, many plans with premiums as low as $10/month for lower income levels.

Spread the word: the Affordable Care Act open enrollment is here, and lasts through December 15 nationwide. Don’t let any uninsured member of your community miss their opportunity to purchase affordable, subsidized healthcare!

The future of the ACA is currently in the hands of the Supreme Court, as it faces yet another GOP attack on what should be a basic human right. We won’t know the outcome of this particular case until next spring. But this in no way means Americans shouldn’t enroll now, to have coverage for the year if the outcome keeps the ACA intact, or at minimum for half-a-year if it doesn’t…at which point we’ll be pushing Biden to have a replacement plan ready to go.

There couldn’t be a more important time for every American to have affordable insurance than during a global pandemic. But we must do an extra push to spread the word over the next few weeks, to make up for Trump’s silencing of this vital, lifesaving program.

Make sure you, your loved ones, and your greater community aren’t locked out of affordable healthcare. Enroll now, and spread the word that December 15 is the deadline for most states.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling state leaders to spread the word about the Dec. 15 Obamacare deadline, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
