Tell Senators Capito & Manchin to Say “No Thanks!” to GOP Tax Plan
This week, members of Congress are back home for Thanksgiving recess. When they return to Washington next week, the Senate will vote on a tax plan that would balloon the country’s deficit by giving away massive tax cuts to wealthy individuals and corporations, while giving families, students, people in recovery, and small business owners even less to be thankful for in the coming years. We must send a strong message to Senators Shelley Moore Capito and Joe Manchin and tell them to say “No thanks!” to the GOP tax plan. More

Senator Capito Votes for Senate Budget Resolution That Puts Health Care for West Virginia Families at Risk
The budget resolution sets up blueprint for tax cuts that mostly benefit wealthy households while cutting health care and education for everyone else. Senator Capito voted for the Resolution that could put Medicaid for 438,000 West Virginians at risk as well as Medicare for 416,000 seniors and people with disabilities. Time and time again, Senator Capito has shown that, despite what she says, her priorities are taking care of the wealthy and big business, not her constituents.More

Health Care Repeal Roller Coaster Rolls On
On January 1st it seemed inevitable that we would see the ACA repealed within months, if not weeks. Today, the public has little to no appetite for another attempt at repeal, and the Congress knows it. Health care as a right has entered the discussion, and grassroots groups around the country are growing in size and influence. We should be proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish, for it’s only the beginning of what is possible.More
