ICYMI: This Week’s Disastrous GOP Agenda

National

California Here We Come!

House Majority PAC expands the accountability campaign to include seven California Republican-held Congressional districts. Jeff Denham (CA-10), David Valadao (CA-21), Steve Knight (CA-25), Ed Royce (CA-39), Mimi Walters (CA-45), Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), and Darrell Issa (CA-49) are increasingly out-of-touch with their constituents. They have proven this time-and-time again by voting for Trump’s extreme agenda and the disastrous GOP healthcare bill.

Where’s Health Care?

Congressional Republicans can’t seem to learn their lesson on health care – continuing to offer one dangerous healthcare plan after another. Voters won’t forget that House Republicans sealed their fate by voting for the disastrous American Health Care Act (AHCA). The House version will strip coverage from 23 million hardworking Americans, gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions and impose an “Age Tax.”

House GOP Budget Giveaway to Special Interests

It’s clear where the GOP’s priorities lie. They’re looking to give massive handouts to the wealthy and special interests while hurting their constituents by putting essential programs on the chopping block – slashing Medicare, Medicaid, education, affordable housing, and attacking Social Security.

 

In the Districts

AZ-02

Congresswoman Martha McSally isn’t listening to her constituents. One of her constituents called her out in the Daily Star for her disastrous vote on the AHCA. The author notes, that Congresswoman McSally chose her party over the best interests of her constituents.

CA-21

HMP announced efforts to hold Congressman David Valadao accountable for his disastrous AHCA vote. This vote would cause over 60,000 of his constituents to lose coverage, impose an “Age Tax,” and gut protections for the 290,000 people in his district with pre-existing conditions.

But that’s not all, his constituents confronted the congressman about his terrible healthcare vote, and why he’s not holding a town hall.

CA-25

HMP also announced efforts to hold Congressman Steve Knight accountable for his disastrous AHCA vote. This vote would cause over 45,000 of his constituents to lose coverage, impose an “Age Tax,” and gut protections for the 300,000 people in his district with pre-existing conditions.

ME-02

The Portland Press Herald published an editorial slamming Bruce Poliquin for being on the wrong side of the healthcare debate. The editorial noted Poliquin “…stuck with his party’s leaders and supported the bill, even though thousands of his constituents would suffer.”

MI-07

WLAJ aired a segment where Congressman Tim Walberg responded to the Senate healthcare bill, calling the lack of progress “disappointing.” But what does Congressman Walberg mean by disappointing? Does he want millions of people to lose insurance? What is clear, is that Congressman Walberg is standing behind his unforgivable AHCA vote where 33,000 of his constituents would lose healthcare coverage.
