If you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 1384/S. 1129, the Medicare for All Act, then Public Citizen still helps you do that. The main obstacle to this bill's passage, for real, is that, unlike everywhere else on Earth, employers buy health insurance in America, and that hides the cost from you, because if you had to buy it, or pay taxes to your government in order to buy it, you'd know how much it costs. Here's how much it costs, between governmental and private spending: about $10,000 per person in America. The average income in America is a bit under $50,000; force corporations to add that $10,000 in as salary, and then tax the resulting salary at roughly 16%, and we'd spend the same money on health care we're spending now, but we could cover everyone and cover them better -- and folks wouldn't see one penny missing from their paycheck. Think it over, and you'll see it works.
Meanwhile, CREDO helps you tell our Education Secretary to scrap plans to sell off federally-backed student loans to banksters. Whoa, you ask, is she really thinking of doing that? Of course she is -- for her, as for the rest of this disgusting Administration, everything is an opportunity to make Our Glorious Elites more money, and "everything" includes those fraudulent loans that weigh down students with nightmarish debt. An individual with morals would consider helping out students with their fraudulent debt -- or, hell, even canceling it! Predatory colleges did lie to those kids about their job prospects, and even about their own ability to stay in business! But this Administration considers financial predators and for-profit colleges their constituency. Which is fitting, I suppose -- our President himself had to settle three lawsuits for $25 million concerning his "university" right after getting elected. See? He knows corruption!
Finally, hot on the heels of Facebook's own co-founder writing a New York Times op-ed calling for our FTC to break up Facebook -- and you should read it, both for its defense of antitrust action and its sad history of how we've abandoned it over the last several decades -- Demand Progress helps you call our FTC and tell them to break up Facebook. "Breaking up Facebook" would require Facebook to sell Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram, which might even enable you to enjoy those social media communities again, since they won't be under Facebook's thumb anymore (and will each have owners who might make them better applications). Our FTC is mulling a sizable fine for Facebook, as punishment for failing to protect customer private information, but even a $5 billion fine is peanuts to a powerful monopoly like Facebook -- a better punishment would be to take away their power to monopolize markets and do harm. Breaking up monopolies, after all, is fundamentally pro-freedom.
