This is the biggest threat we face as a nation. We can not let the GOP gain control of more State
Governments, or else the Koch Brothers and ALEC will be re-writing our Constitution.
“A constitutional convention, something thought impossible not long ago, is looking increasingly likely. Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, if 34 state legislatures “issue a call” for a constitutional convention, Congress must convene one. By some counts, the right-wing only needs six more states. Once called, delegates can propose and vote on changes and new amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which, if approved, are currently required to be ratified by 38 states.”

“If Third Way succeeds, the Democrats will leave an opening for right-wing “populism” to thrive long after the Trump presidency. If this happens, Americans will increasingly (and correctly) see Democrats as a party run by the establishment, and serving the interests of its donors, rather than the working class. This is why progressive activists are fighting hard to rid the party of Democrats who embrace this agenda.”
The DLC never went away: Through well-funded think tanks like Third Way, it continues to push Democrats to the right.
What a tool
“At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress — to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.”
detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure.
Now we just need to expand it to everyone!
“More states will pursue expansion of Medicaid health benefits for poor Americans under the Affordable Care Act after Republicans failed to repeal and replace the law.”
At least two states – Kansas and North Carolina – are already working their way toward becoming the 32nd and 33rd states to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which remains the “law of the land” after Republicans failed to repeal the law.
Now that we have defeated the disastrous Trump-Ryan “health care” plan, we must work together to demand that Republican governors and legislatures expand Medicaid to provide affordable health insurance to over 4 million Americans.
The good news is that on the same day House Republicans pulled their bill to throw 24 million Americans off of health insurance, the Republican Kansas Senate took the first step towards expanding Medicaid to provide health insurance to 150,000 Kansans.
It’s time for the governor of Kansas to stop putting his rich right-wing ideology ahead of the health care needs of the people in Kansas. Stop giving tax breaks to billionaires and start providing affordable health care to those who desperately need it.
