Trumpcare Again Defeated in Senate
Statement in response to reports that republican senators have decided against bringing the graham-cassidy health care repeal bill up for a vote.
WASHINGTON - Statement by MoveOn Washington Director Ben Wikler:
“The GOP attempt to rip coverage away from millions of Americans has once again crumbled in the face of furious opposition. But it’s now clear that health care repeal will remain a threat until Republicans no longer control Congress and the White House. Republicans’ fealty to their extreme-right donors at the expense of their voters and all Americans can only be addressed through an electoral landslide that destroys the GOP’s political power as surely as Graham-Cassidy would have destroyed Americans’ health care.”

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
