Having smart, rational people in charge of the municipalities in our district is one of the ways we can all help to make the 6th District work for all its people, instead of only working for the wealthy.

Healthcare is a Family Value

We’ve known for a while that Republicans in Congress will do anything to repeal the Affordable Care Act. It has been such a thorn in their sides, they will do anything it takes, even if it means denying sick people the access to affordable health insurance they need. The House has already wrapped up their end of the deal by passing the American Health Care Act. The AHCA, which was railroaded through without discussion and without a CBO score, has been thoroughly panned by analysts on the left and the right as well as by medical professionals and insurers.

The AHCA is projected to kick 24 million Americans off their health insurance via several means: unaffordable premiums, slashed subsidies, elimination of essential health benefits, the return of preexisting conditions via elimination of coverage for certain illnesses, cuts to Medicaid. You can also be certain that some of the people dropping off the insurance rolls will have done so because they died from lack of care. If you buy insurance through your employer, don’t assume you’re safe. The AHCA could affect over 100 million employer provided insurance plans. You name it, House Republicans put it in there. Obviously, it is vitally important that your subsidy be used to facilitate tax cuts for the wealthiest people in the country while ignoring the needs of regular, working class people.

Our 6th District is projected to have 99,000 people lose their coverage (see chart above). To give some perspective, that is slightly more than the number of people living in Asheboro, Pittsboro, Sanford, Roxboro, Yanceyville, Reidsville and Mebane combined. Statewide it is projected that 1.3 million+ North Carolinians will lose their coverage. That is just shy of the population of any two of our congressional districts combined. Imagine just completely excising two whole districts from the map.

Pretty shocking isn’t it?

After a sit-down with the President, Rep. Mark Walker, enthusiastically voted along the party line, as usual, to pass the AHCA. This must be the compassionate conservatism we’re always hearing about.

If you’d like to talk to Rep. Walker’s staff about qualms you have over this bill, as well as the qualms I’m sure you’ll have after the Senate foists their version on us, his contact information as well as that of Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis is as follows:

Defending the Indefensible

GOP Lawmakers Reluctantly Defend Trump After Comey Testimony Is Published

“[Trump] is a guy that has people around him and working for him. He’s transitioning from, you know, ‘These people work for me,’ to, ‘Uphold the Constitution and work for the American people,’” Walker said. “I’m trying not to give him an overwhelming pass, but this is still new for him.”

This, from the people who complained for eight years that President Obama was inexperienced. Funny how they give the President a pass when he probably won’t veto the bonehead legislation they put forward.
