THE CLASSROOM. SENATOR AL FRANKEN- DESTROYING MEDICARE.

David,

What’s still ringing, you ask? I’m talking about the giant ringing alarm bells I mentioned in a recent email.

I rang those bells because the GOP is angling to end Medicare as we know it. It’s a big deal, and we need to act fast.

Oh, you didn’t hear the giant ringing alarm bells? Well, allow me to ring them for you again -- the GOP is planning to end Medicare as we know it, and we need to organize to stop them. 

Donald Trump and Republicans in Washington have shown a remarkable capacity to push their preferred storylines in place of, you know, facts.

That means we can’t get distracted by the latest scandal coming out of Trump Tower. Not because the latest scandal isn’t important (or a different degree of terrifying) but because saving Medicare definitely is and right now, we’re organizing a defense.

The GOP would very much like us to focus on something else while they’re dismantling one of the most successful public health programs in American history. We are not going to let them do it.

 ...tell the GOP that you’re ready for this fight.

Thanks,

Al
