In response to your coverage of the new Administration and Congress: The GOP-dominated Congress and the Trump White House are again attempting to strip vital health insurance from millions of middle and low-income Americans!

These actions will affect the health of children, seniors and people with disabilities all to give a tax break to the top 1 percent, who can afford the best health insurance money can buy.

Americans deserve better consideration from the officials they elected.

Last month we narrowly avoided disaster when the House health care bill failed at the last minute. Now there's talk of trying to jam through another version of that bad bill in the next two weeks. It would still end Medicaid as we know it and strip health coverage from 24 million Americans. And if that wasn't enough, it now also threatens people with pre-existing conditions.

I hope we can count on our members of Congress to listen to the people they were elected to represent. They need to protect Medicaid and reject this bad proposal.
