This week I again called my U.S. House representative to oppose the GOP’s Wealthcare Act. He issued a statement supporting the bill, citing the usual right wing talking points. I told his staffer those talking points have no connection to reality, but I made no headway. Fortunately, the bill died without a floor vote, but I plan to remind the voters of my district that he wanted to gut health care for the poor and for women … all to give a tax break to millionaires and billionaires.
