from Christina Hartman, 8/31/17:
We need a real representative, not just a Trump rubber-stamp!
I opened the LNP this morning to see a report on Rep. Lloyd Smucker’s first eight months in Congress. Here are some highlights:
-Smucker “has a nearly perfect score in voting with his party,” including a vote to weaken Obama-era rules protecting Main Street from Wall Street greed.
-Smucker voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and throw millions of Americans off their health insurance (and make being a woman a pre-existing condition, again).
-Smucker has voted “essentially 100 percent” in line with Donald Trump’s disastrous agenda.
We deserve a real representative, not just a rubber-stamp. If you agree, please chip in $10 or more to support my campaign before our August deadline….
and from Jess King, 8/31/17
Despite having the entire month of August off, Rep. Lloyd Smucker has not held a single public town hall to hear from constituents and explain his vote for the GOP health care bill. I decided that if he wasn’t going to hold a town hall, if he won’t answer your questions about health care, then I would. Yesterday, I held a town hall outside his district office in Lancaster to discuss how we can transform our healthcare system.
At our town hall event last night, I heard my neighbors’ fears about the GOP health care bill and their excitement about Medicare-for-All. A friend of mine shared how she survived breast cancer twice. She said if Obamacare’s protections for patients with pre-existing conditions were repealed then “her son would be without a mom.” Listening to your stories reinspired me to win this campaign and bring our vision for a Medicare-for-All system to Washington.
But changing the status quo won’t be easy. Will you join us by donating to the campaign today?
I believe it is wrong for any American to live in the richest nation on this Earth and be denied medical care simply because they cannot pay. No one should suffer an illness or die because they cannot afford available treatment. Health care must be recognized as a right, not a privilege….
