It may seem strange, but Republicans are talking an awful lot about cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and the protections of the Affordable Care Act -- Administration economic advisor Larry Kudlow told the Economic Club of New York that our Administration would be going after Medicare and Social Security after the midterms, and Republicans in Congress keep proposing budgets that would turn Medicare into a voucher program and cut trillions of dollars from Medicare and Medicaid. You'd think with all the trouble Republicans had getting rid of the Affordable Care Act, they'd know better -- but then again, they're probably looking around the political landscape and seeing nothing but weakling Democrats who barely raise a peep in defense of popular and necessary programs. Thus it's up to us, as always, so Greyroots Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject any attempt to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Senators to reject the nomination of D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to our Supreme Court, then you can still use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or the bottom of this page, if you're viewing it on a smartphone) to call your Senators and give them what-for. The news is all about the sworn affidavit from a third woman accusing Mr. Kavanaugh of horrific sexual behavior toward girls while he was still a youth -- and, as other observers have pointed out, a sworn affidavit means perjury charges for the person who swears it if they're lying. But Justice Kavanaugh has already convinced us he'd do his damnedest to expand Presidential power, and I think we're all seeing how bad a proposition that would be right now. And these quite reasonable accusations over the last week also show us that Mr. Kavanaugh is too entitled to sit in judgement on anyone or anything.
