Ep. 28 – We’ve Done Things.
THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS
ACTION OF THE WEEK:
The GOP is touting the fact that they “do things” as reason to vote for them in the midterms. They have been doing things alright – horrible, inhumane, corrupt, morally bankrupt things. This week we focus on 2 areas. Healthcare and ICE – AKA our modern-day gestapo
Healthcare – a rundown of all the ways the ACA has been sabotaged since Trump took office the. (it is appalling how determined they are to take away our healthcare)
“My name is xx from xx zip code. I’m very disturbed by the continual attacks on our healthcare especially the latest of work requirements for Medicaid and bringing back junk insurance. I as the Senator/Rep to make sure to protect the health care we have and expand healthcare for all. Thank you”
ICE – recap of Trump’s ICE. (this is America’s Gestapo and we must bear witness)
“My name is xx from xx zip code. I am appalled by all the atrocities ICE is committing and disgusted by the latest revelation on their practices – separating children from their parents. I ask that the Senator/Rep ask for hearings on ice, defund ice and censure ice. They are a modern-day gestapo and must be stopped. Thank you”
Stop the farm bill with its attack on the poor. A heart wrenching account of what life is like when your food stamps are cut.
Script: “My name is XX from xx zip code. I’m calling to express my opposition to the farm bill. It takes food away from so many in need. This is about basic human rights and decency. We need a farm bill that will protect peoples access to SNAP. Please vote No on the farm bill if it has any provision that would hurt people’s access to food. Thank you”
