Hello! Mark here.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, to keep an eye on what Barack Obama’s propaganda machine is telling the faithful I subscribe to the Organizing for Action email list. It’s pretty enlightening sometimes, and infuriating at others. The complete disconnect from truth is discouraging, and it’s upsetting to know that people willingly believe whatever OFA dishes out without question.
Today is another example. In response to President Trump fulfilling his campaign promise, and the desire of most Americans, to repeal and replace the deeply flawed and unconstitutional Obamacare health care coverage system Trump has taken a couple of very positive steps to correct basic flaws with the system. You would think he shot JFK. Here’s the email I received from OFA today, with my comments mized in:
This is the worst thing this administration has done on health care yet, and millions of Americans need your help.
By refusing to pay cost-sharing reduction payments — critical subsidies for Obamacare — the administration is aiming to badly damage insurance, raising premiums on American families and possibly leaving a number of folks without options for insurance.
It’s an act of pure malice, plain and simple. A decision made solely out of spite following their failure to repeal the law. It’s going to harm millions of both sick and healthy people.
There are public policies that reasonable people disagree on. Funding these payments is not one of them.
It’s not too late. Congress can step in and fund these payments, but we have to demand action. OFA’s call tool will connect you to a senator in seconds — call now.
Their plan is as simple as it is shameful: chase insurers out of the marketplace and force Obamacare’s collapse.
It’s not what the American people want.
The American people overwhelmingly want to keep Obamacare and they overwhelmingly want Congress to work together on bipartisan solutions to improve the law.
Congress needs to act immediately. It’s time to take over the phone lines again — use OFA’s call tool to get in touch with a key senator right now:

Well, it wasn’t a done deal because the people elected Donald Trump. We didn’t want Hillary or the “progressive” programs she would enact which would cripple our economy and reduce our excellent health care system to the level of the horrible European system.
