While we’re distracted with abortion rights, the GOP and their Wall Street donors are busy trying ruin something else that we value.
- Action #1: On May 23, learn more about how corporate vultures plan to privatize Medicare and how to stop them. Share this in your social circles!
- Action #2: Sign a petition to Joe to stop this nonsense before more vulnerable people are hurt.
- Action #3: Make a call to Joe to “executive action” this away.
- Action #4: Call your representative to fight against Trump’s corrupt leftovers.
This action was shared with us by our Ventura County chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP). The nationwide organization’s mission statement is simple:

- The GOP says the acronym stands for the Accountable Care Organization Realizing Equity, Access, and Community Health. Hmmm…isn’t that what Medicare is already doing?
- Here’s the real translation – the American Corporations & Oligarchs – REACHing into and draining our Medicare fund dry. Under this program, private equity and ventura capitalist firms, who have already wreaked havoc on the wheelchair and air ambulance industries, will finally be allowed bring their particular blend of toxic greed to the Medicare trough, right alongside the private insurance companies who are already making bank with their aptly named “Medicare Advantage” plans.
