Enough of the culture of corruption.

Posted on

For two years, Trump, his cronies in Congress, and his Cabinet have infected every level of government.

See how it started.

See who is in on it.

See how it grew.

It’s time to finally put a check on the culture of corruption.

THEIR LATEST EFFORT TO HIDE THE TRUTH.

Republicans are actively trying to sabotage protections for pre-existing conditions. Remember that.

In the courts and in Congress—despite the lies they spew on the campaign trail—Republicans are ceaselessly attacking American healthcare.

Today, in a transparent attempt to mislead American voters less than two weeks before an election centered around health care, President Trump unveiled a new plan to lower drug costs.

If you’re skeptical, you’re not alone. Trump and congressional Republicans have consistently sabotaged the very policies that keep health care affordable and protections for pre-existing conditions in place—why would anyone believe they would stop now?

As Rachel Maddow reminded us this week, “Don’t listen to what they say. Watch what they do.

“WITHOUT HEALTH CARE, MY HUSBAND WOULD HAVE DIED.”

Lea knew from the beginning that she wanted to make a life with her husband. When he was diagnosed with brain cancer—which his insurance designated as a pre-existing condition—their world turned upside down.

Because of the ACA, there is now no lifetime cap on her husband’s coverage. They don’t have to wonder if they’ll be able to afford the lifesaving medical care he needs.

Lea’s representative is Peter Roskam (R, IL-06). He voted to rip health care away from 710,200 Illinoisans. Illinois deserves better.

Watch and share Lea’s story.
