CREDO Statement on Trumpcare Delay
WASHINGTON - CREDO released the statement below in response to reports that the Senate will not vote on Trumpcare until after the July 4 recess:
“This is a key win in a long fight,” said CREDO Political Director Murshed Zaheed. "The momentum in the fight over health care in the United States is on the side of the anti-Trump resistance,” Zaheed continued. “The fact is, Trumpcare is a nightmare for Americans families now, and it will still be a nightmare after the July 4 recess.”
“CREDO will escalate pressure on Republican senators during the recess and until Trumpcare is dead,” Zaheed continued. “Through grassroots campaigning and multi-channel digital campaigns, we’ll make it clear to senators that stealing Americans’ health care to provide tax cuts for the rich is a political liability they can’t afford.”
“CREDO will continue fighting until we have stopped Trumpcare once and for all,” he added.
CREDO is conducting a full court press in opposition to Trumpcare:
- Purchased strategically placed #ResistTrumpcare billboards in 5 states.
- Generated 45,000+ phone calls to congressional offices.
- Produced a series of hard hitting videos that have been viewed 20 million times.
- Collected 650,000+ anti-Trumpcare petition signatures.
- Deployed geotargeted #ResistTrumpcare Snapchat filters in Washington, D.C. and 8 states.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
