Message from Sen. Casey about drumpf's plan for Medicaid:

A message from U.S. Senator Bob Casey on President Trump's emerging plan for Medicaid.........

U.S. Senator Bob Casey
5 hrs ·
President Trump’s emerging plan to block grant Medicaid is a blatant broken promise that will adversely impact seniors, children, those with disabilities and those who are low income. This radical approach will also harm rural Pennsylvanians by ending coverage and threatening to shutter rural hospitals. Some of these communities only have one hospital and the cuts that would occur with block granting would cripple those hospitals. In addition to the loss of health care services, block granting Medicaid will cause substantial job loss for middle class families, large numbers of whom work at hospitals. Block granting Medicaid is just a cute phrase for $1 trillion in cuts that will result in less nursing home care for seniors and less health care coverage for the struggling and those with disabilities. As the President moves towards this scheme to strip benefits from seniors and the vulnerable he is also proposing massive tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires and big corporations; let’s end the giveaways to the very rich and use those resources to help our seniors instead of cutting their benefits. #Medicaid

Today's Google Doodle honors activist Ed Roberts:



Google Doodle payed homage on Monday to what would have been the 78th birthday of pioneering disability campaigner Ed Roberts — who fought throughout his lifetime for people with disabilities to have the right to fully participate in society — with artwork featuring the activist giving a lecture from his wheelchair.

With all due respect, fixating on Kellyanne is not helpful.

There are more important things to do and think about now, like calling or writing your congress person. Keep the pressure on the congress. Write letters to the editor; call C-span and get on the air. There is plenty to do. The "reality show" is now the new reality. #resist

Did you march yesterday? Post your reports and photos if you can!

I attended the march in DC. I would love to hear others' stories about their experiences. I'll try to post some pictures later. We got in late last night and I'm so achy this morning. I can't believe I was actually there! It was mind-boggling.

C-Span will show the Women's March on Washington.

Saturday, starting at 10 am. I just saw a promo.

I think I just saw a notice that the ANSWER protest will be on tomorrow on C-span 2 !!! Did anyone else see that?

Senator Casey will vote "no" on three cabinet nominees:

DeVos, Sessions, and Pruitt. Thank you, Senator!

ANSWER will hold Mass Protest on Jan. 20 in DC. Details:

http://www.answercoalition.org/breaking_news_navy_memorial_will_now_be_the_site_of_largest_protest_on_the_inaugural_parade_route

The Jan. 20 Mass Protest along the Presidential Inaugural Route will be a powerful rejection of the Trump Agenda on Day One of his administration. Permits have been secured by the ANSWER Coalition for the large Navy Memorial site on Pennsylvania Ave. NW from 7th St. to 9th St. A 28-foot stage and a huge sound system will be set up there so that Trump, his big donors, the international media and indeed the whole world will see our presence.

This will be a protest unlike any other, and the Navy Memorial site will be the largest of all the protests on Jan. 20. The Navy Memorial stage will feature leaders from every grassroots movement — immigrant rights, labor, environmental justice, women’s rights, Movement for Black Lives, LGBTQ equality, anti-war and others — as well as progressive leaders from the whole spectrum of faith communities. Artists, musicians and DJs will be performing throughout the day to keep our energy high and the spirit of resistance alive.

This diverse group will unite together to send a powerful message of opposition to the extremist Trump Agenda, which includes attacks on Muslim and immigrant communities, women’s rights, workers’ rights, and the wholesale the privatization of the public sector, among other pro-Wall Street extremist plans that constitute the core of the Trump Agenda.


The protest has been moved from Freedom Plaza to the Navy Memorial, if anyone is going.

Today’s Doodle, by guest artist Keith Mallett, captures one of the major themes of King’s speeches and writing: unity. “All life is interrelated,” he said. “We are all made to live together.” King urged Americans of all races to keep “working toward a world of brotherhood, cooperation, and peace.”
