Inside Senator Kaine's new health care plan:

Tim introduced new legislation this week called Medicare-X that gives more insurance options to more Americans, so folks can choose an affordable plan that is best for their health.

We need to keep leaders like Tim in the Senate who will fight for legislation that puts people ahead of politics. If you support his reelection, pitch in $10 today to make sure we can build a smart, tough campaign.

DONATE



Earlier this week, Tim introduced new legislation to create a plan called Medicare-X, which would expand affordable insurance options for folks across the country.

What is Medicare-X?

Medicare-X is a public plan that would offer families, individuals, and small businesses more low-cost health insurance choices.

Why is it called Medicare-X?

This legislation, the Medicare-X Choice Act, builds on the existing Medicare framework so that Americans can have a choice of an affordable, high-quality public insurance plan on the exchanges.

Why do we need Medicare-X?

Last week, President Trump signed an executive order that destabilizes our health care system and which could cause premiums to go up, people to lose their coverage, and insurers to be driven out of the marketplace. There's already a shortage of insurers and higher health care costs in some areas (especially rural communities), and this action from the President is only going to make things worse.

Medicare-X prioritizes these areas that are hit hardest -- and by 2023, it would expand to every single ZIP code in the country. By the following year, it would be added as another option for small businesses to opt into.

The bottom line:

Americans deserve more health care choices, at lower prices. By creating this permanent Medicare-X option, folks everywhere will be able to choose an affordable plan that is best for their health.


Tim won't stand idly by as President Trump sabotages our health care system. And while many congressional Republicans may continue their attempts to dismantle health care at every turn, we can't let that distract us. We need to build on the progress toward universal coverage that President Obama started seven years ago with the Affordable Care Act.

That's why it's critical that we keep leaders like Tim in the Senate -- leaders committed to introducing legislation that helps families, not willing to play politics with Americans' lives and livelihoods.

If you agree, make a contribution today to support Tim's reelection to the Senate. We can't afford to move backwards -- so chip in $10 or whatever you can afford, and say you're in for six more years of putting people above politics.

re: health care and taxes

The Republican plans to sabotage Obamacare and cut taxes for the wealthy.
Factivists
Holding Donald Trump, his administration, and the rest of the GOP accountable is one of the most important parts of our work.

Become a Factivist today to get the latest information about what they're up to, then forward these emails to your friends and family to keep them in the loop, too.



After their latest attempt to repeal Obamacare failed, we knew that Republicans weren't done trying to undermine our health care system.

On Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at gutting the Affordable Care Act.

Trump is sabotaging Obamacare -- load image


Thursday night, his administration then announced its plan to cut subsidy payments that help Americans afford health insurance in an effort to dismantle Obamacare markets -- a move that hurts working families and middle-class Americans the most.

Immediately on the heels of those two devastating moves last week, Republicans are gearing up to talk more about their tax plan, another disastrous attack on the financial well-being of middle-class families.

The GOP tax plan is an attack on middle-class families -- load image


And they plan to pay for it by slashing programs working families depend on, like Medicaid.

Here's the bottom line: Whether they're pushing a health care repeal or so-called "tax reform," the GOP's plans are hurting the American people.

The GOP's plans are hurting the American people -- load image


We need to keep fighting until we stop them.

If you have a Republican member of Congress, pick up the phone, call them, and let them know: Not one penny of tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of hard-working Americans.

Call Congress and tell them no tax cuts for the wealthy -- load image


As always, keep tweeting and sharing -- your help is critical to getting the word out.

Fwd: BREAKING: New executive order sabotages the ACA

We need to hold Republicans accountable for this.
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump's latest executive order guts Obamacare -- seriously. Pitch in $3 or more to show Republicans you're ready to kick them out of office.


Friend --

Today at the White House, Rand Paul and Mike Pence stood next to Donald Trump while he signed an executive order that guts Obamacare as we know it.

They're proud of themselves for sabotaging affordable care -- load images.

This order undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions and will make health care more expensive for the people who need it most.

Take a moment to read DNC Chair Tom Perez's urgent message -- then pitch in whatever you can to help elect Democrats who will undo today's damage and always fight to protect our health care.


Thanks,

The Democrats

Subject: BREAKING: New executive order sabotages the ACA

I've had it.

The Trump administration just announced its latest attempt to sabotage our health care system -- a new executive order allowing businesses to purchase bare-bones insurance plans that undermine protections put in place by the Affordable Care Act.

Millions of Americans from every state have rallied, signed petitions, and made phone calls to share their stories and let Republicans know how helpful access to affordable care has been to them and their families.

But Republicans keep ignoring us. And after repeated failures to repeal our health care, the GOP has decided to forego our checks and balances in favor of Trump's recklessness.

This White House has purposely cut funding for advertising efforts to promote Obamacare's next open enrollment period. They've attacked women's rights by rolling back the ACA mandate that requires employers to cover birth control.

Now, they're working to undermine our health care system by creating markets that only healthy people can afford -- leaving millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions out in the cold.

Trump considers undoing anything with President Obama's name on it a win -- but health care is not a game. It's a right for every American.

Let's show this White House and Republicans in Congress what happens when they decide to ignore the majority of Americans and gut Obamacare.

A short-sighted, dangerous giveaway to the fossil fuel industry

Take action to help protect our planet.
DemocratsJoin us.
The Trump administration is going to eliminate the Clean Power Plan -- pitch in $3 now to help elect Democrats who will act on climate change to protect our planet for future generations.


The mission of the Environmental Protection Agency is a simple one: "to protect human health and the environment."

Apparently, no one has shared this information with EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

Pruitt and the Trump administration announced plans to eliminate the Clean Power Plan -- protections that President Obama put in place to limit greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

This is a short-sighted, dangerous giveaway to the fossil fuel industry. If you're sick and tired of this behavior from this administration, this is the time to step up.

Pitch in $3 or whatever you can right now to help elect Democrats who will fight back.

The head of the EPA is tasked with keeping our public lands, water, and air clean and safe. But Pruitt has little interest in doing that job:
  • Pruitt was arguably the loudest advocate for leaving the Paris Climate Accord.
  • He willfully ignored his agency's own experts and the American Academy of Pediatrics to approve the usage of a pesticide that can cause neurological damage in children.
  • In June, Pruitt announced plans to rescind the Clean Water Rule, which keeps streams and rivers that provide drinking water for one-third of Americans safe from dangerous pollutants.
  • When he was Oklahoma's attorney general, he made his name suing the EPA to fight regulations on polluters. And he's spent his tenure at the agency holding secret meetings with fossil fuel executives and lobbyists.
This week's news is the latest example of Pruitt doing what's best for the fossil fuel industry at the expense of public health and safety -- the exact opposite of his agency's mission.

Chip in whatever you can right now to help elect Democrats who will keep our air and water safe and protect our planet for future generations.

Birth Control

Today, the administration announced their rollback of the federal rule requiring employers to include birth control in their health insurance plans.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

This administration just announced they are rolling back the Obama administration's rule requiring employers to include birth control in their health insurance plans. This rule's benefits are profound -- from contributing to the lowest levels of unintended pregnancy in 30 years, to saving women $1.4 billion in its first year alone -- and pulling it back is a flat-out attack on the fundamental right of women to choose when and whether they get pregnant.

This move means that a woman's access to birth control through her health insurance can again be regulated by her boss if her employer has a "moral" objection to it, getting rid of the guarantee that women had birth control coverage regardless of who they work for.

This is unacceptable. Millions of women might lose the birth control benefits they now receive at no cost. Women across the country -- especially young women -- will be forced to choose between paying for contraceptives or paying for other basic necessities.

It's just the latest example of this administration's attempts to undo the progress we've made in making our health care more affordable and accessible -- and more fair to women. But as we've done for months now, OFA volunteers and supporters will continue to push back against discriminatory actions like these that put health care out of reach for too many Americans. We need your help to support this work:

Tomorrow morning's call

Tomorrow: Join OFA's call on the latest on gun violence prevention.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

Just wanted to make sure you got the details for tomorrow morning's call with Valerie Jarrett, former Senior Advisor to President Obama, and Captain Mark Kelly, co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions.

We'll be talking about the SHARE Act, a bill supported by the gun lobby that could make gun silencers available to anyone -- including criminals and domestic abusers -- without a background check. On the call, we'll be going over ways we can stop this disastrous bill from becoming law.

Here are the details:

What: SHARE Act briefing call with special guests Valerie Jarrett and Mark Kelly

When: Friday, September 22, 11 a.m. ET

RSVP

If it becomes law, the SHARE Act may put our safety at risk. It's up to all of us to get involved in pushing back against it, and that starts with getting on tomorrow's call.

I hope you can join in.

Thanks,

Jennifer

FRIDAY: Join me and Valerie Jarrett on a call

The gun lobby and its friends in Congress are working on a bill that would let anyone buy a gun silencer. Let's fight back.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

Gunshots are loud.

A single shot makes more noise, per decibel, than an airliner taking off. Or a firework exploding. Or a jackhammer chipping away at a sidewalk.

It's that distinctive noise that alerts our police to an active shooter. It helps victims and other innocent bystanders figure out where gunfire is coming from, so they can move to safety. And it gives those who are thinking about firing a gun pause, knowing that it'll draw attention.

It's pretty simple: The noise that guns make helps prevent gun violence ... yet somehow, that's exactly what the gun lobby and their friends in Congress are fighting against with their bill that would allow anyone to buy a gun silencer without so much as a background check.

Join me and Valerie Jarrett, former Senior Advisor to President Obama, on a call this Friday at 11 a.m. EST to talk about this threat to public safety -- and how we can work together to stop it.

The gun lobby claims this bill is meant to protect hunter's hearing, but that's just an excuse. It's nothing more than an effort to drive more sales for corporations who manufacture and sell firearm silencers -- cutting regulations that have been in place for 80 years so that anyone, even criminals and domestic abusers, can get a hold of a silencer, no questions asked.

It defies major law enforcement enforcement organizations, who have come out strongly against it. It defies the majority of Americans who want smart, sensible solutions.

It defies common-sense.

Gabby and I are fighting hard against it, but we need your help. We're thrilled Valerie is joining Friday's call -- and we hope you will, too. Say you're in:

I'm in
