Tell Congress: Release The Full Report

Mar 26, 2019

Mike Hersh for Alan, Mike F, Deb, Janis, Dan, Bryan, Kim, Dr. Bill, and Shayna—your PDA National Team

The Trump regime has been waging war on progress since day one, and Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has been leading the fight for more progress. Today, we focus on the battle over healthcare. We at PDA demand Medicare For All. The Trumpublicans want healthcare for the wealthy only.

That’s why we at PDA argue that resistance is necessary, but it isn’t enough. We must broaden, strengthen, and expand progressive public policy—not just settle for what we have left after decades of right wing and neoliberal rollbacks. Please join us in demanding accountability. Support our efforts to arrest and reverse Trumpism. That means advancing strong, effective progressive policies.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued his final report on Trump’s corruption (in a very narrow sense), but U.S. Attorney General William Barr has resisted calls to release the full report. Click here to tell your Senators and Representative that We the People must know all of the findings, not just a summary. No one is above the law. We must see the full Mueller Report.

Support PDA’s Efforts to Hold the Trump Regime Accountable

Trump seems emboldened by the inexplicably disappointing Mueller findings. Just yesterday, the Administration announced a new and diabolical strategy in their war on healthcare. They’ve reversed their previous stance and now support an attack against the constitutionality of “Obamacare.” As USA Today reported:

The Trump administration told a federal court late Monday that it would ask judges to toss out the entire Affordable Care Act, a decision that cast further uncertainty over the future of a federal law that has extended health insurance to millions of Americans.

Justice Department attorneys said in a letter filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans that a lower court’s ruling the health law is unconstitutional  “should be affirmed” and that the “United States is not urging that any portion of the district court’s judgement be reversed.”

A coalition of Republican-led states brought a lawsuit, Texas v United States, arguing the entire health law should be tossed out.

See: The end for Obamacare? Trump administration says it will ask a court to throw out entire health law by Ken Alltucker and Brad Heath, USA TODAY, March 26, 2019.

If this assault is successful in the courts, it would throw millions of Americans off their healthcare, including those of us who rely on Medicaid expansion. It could possibly invalidate other current programs including Medicare, Medicaid, and the Childrens’ Health Insurance Program. That makes our advocacy for the Medicare For All Act—that PDA has supported since our founding in 2004–all the more imperative! Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor the Medicare For All Act!

    If the report completely exonerates the president, he should be the first to want it released in all its detail. We on the other side are ready to face the consequences.
