Target: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
Goal: Save Obamacare from Donald Trump.
According to running mate Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s first act as president will be to undo parts of Obamacare, just as many have feared. While Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan claim they intend to issue a replacement plan, this claim is not to be trusted. Paul Ryan has fought for years to destroy the much-needed Medicare, and Mike Pence has been reported as having taken too long to respond to news of a past HIV outbreak and has allegedly claimed smoking does not kill. Regardless of Trump’s actual plans, the word of these two men cannot be trusted.
Obamacare has helped thousands of people over the past eight years, people in need of regular health care who cannot always afford the standard costs; to repeal it would essentially be punishing the elderly, the disabled and those stricken by poverty. These people have just as much right to affordable health care as the able-bodied, young and wealthy do.
Pence and Ryan’s promise to implement a replacement plan cannot be trusted, especially after Ryan has fought so hard to destroy Medicare, another important health plan. Sign this petition to protect Obamacare from Trump’s designs.
Dear Associate Justice Ginsburg,
Donald Trump has plans to dismantle parts of Obamacare as soon as he enters office. His running mate Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan claim it will be replaced by something just as effective, but their word cannot be trusted. Paul Ryan especially cannot be trusted due to his years-long desire to destroy Medicare.
Obamacare has been the first time in a long time that the disabled, the elderly and the poverty-stricken have had just as much right to proper health care as anyone else. This program has done wonders for the country, and it must be protected. To destroy it would basically be punishing the elderly, the disabled and the poverty-stricken.
Please do everything in your power and your authority to protect Obamacare. Do not let the Republicans destroy one of President Obama’s greatest accomplishments.
