You have turned your back on an estimated 300,000 people in your district. You have decided that this set of tax cuts for the rich is worth letting your constituents suffer for. Who do you work for, exactly?
If you honestly believe that this bill will give the American people a better choice for health care – THEN PROVE IT.
Sponsor a bill that removes the taxpayer-funded health care from the members of Congress and forces them to purchase privately as well as removes all protections from pre-existing conditions and any other protection given to you by the ACA. Force all members of Congress to live by the same rules as what you want us to live by. Stand up for your so-called “beliefs” and lead by example.
We in the PPA have been trying our best to focus more on local issues with a positive message and let you dig your own grave with your constituency, but with this vote today, after you told us you were voting “no” on the matter, we can no longer ignore you. If this dangerous bill — which you decided to vote on without a score from the CBO — becomes law, you will be directly responsible for pain, suffering, and even death of members of your community.
You have proven who you work for and it sure as hell isn’t the people of Patterson, Turlock, Modesto, Newman, Denair, or anywhere else in your district. It is your donors and establishment of the Republican Party.
Shame on you.
