Like White Walkers from the Game of Thrones...

Like the armored and mummified White Walkers from Game of Thrones, Trumpcare is hard to kill. Republicans continue reanimating their terrible bill to kick millions of Americans off of their health care.

First, they put forward a mirror image of the House Trumpcare bill that would have cost 22 million people their coverage. The American people rebelled and Mitch McConnell had to pull it.

Then they brought it back with Ted Cruz's awful "fake insurance" provision, but you raised a ruckus and that one went down.

Finally, Trump and McConnell proposed repealing the Affordable Care Act with no replacement of any kind - which would cause premiums to jump by 25 percent in the first year and take away insurance from 32 million people by 2026. It's supposed to get a vote next week.

No matter how many times Republicans try a new way to rip health care away from us, we continue speaking up, standing up, and fighting this bill. We won’t stop until this mortally wounded bill is fully dead. Chip in now and support my efforts to kill this bill once and for all!

We will fight when they threaten to repeal the Affordable Care Act with no replacement.

We will fight when they double our premiums and raise prescription prices to unaffordable amounts.

We will fight when they kick disabled kids, rural Americans, and seniors off of life-saving Medicaid.

We will fight when they defund Planned Parenthood and strip essential benefits like maternity care.

No matter what terrible bill they throw at us, we are not backing down. Chip in and help build this movement.

And when this thing is finally dead, we should turn our attention to guaranteeing every American coverage in a Medicare for All system that is more fair, less stressful, and more efficient.

Let’s stay vigilant and keep up the fight. Onward!
