Trumpcare may fail to get passed but what’s next could be worse

Now is the time for all of America to come together on health care. We now know that Trumpcare is Pro-Death. Obamacare is Pro-Life. And Medicare for all is Pro-Life on steroids. This may sound like hyperbole but the studies are out and it must be characterized in this fashion. Why? Because any plan that changes another where the number of people that die increases is by definition a pro-death policy when related to health care. After-all, we all must have health care.
Today we will have the honorable Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. She will discuss the draconian Affordable Health Care Act, also known as Trumpcare. She will tell us what we will lose if you as the constituents of many Congresspeople and Senators don’t engage them and tell them you do not want Obamacare to be repealed.
I want to remind our listeners that we are in our Spring Fund Drive. But do not despair, Politics Done Right will be discussing our current politics even as we remind you periodically to call Pledge Central at (713)526-5738.
KPFT 90.1 FM Houston is the only Progressive radio station that covers the entire Southeast Texas. We broadcast Politics Done Right throughout the entire nation with prescient topics via our Facebook Live broadcasts and Podcasts.
Since the election of Donald Trump, many of us have rebranded our (your) station, KPFT 90.1 FM Resistance Radio. We understand that it is up to us to make a difference. We cannot depend on the corporatized mainstream media to tell the stories of the middle-class and the poor. They will not educate the masses because it is anathema to maintaining their preeminent being. And that is where we come in. If we want a better country, if we want better health care, if we want better and affordable schools, if we want worthwhile retirements, then we must ensure that the Progressive media, resistance radio remain viable.
I am asking you that you support KPFT 90.1 FM Resistance Radio today. Join our family and know that you are responsible for turning Texas and the rest of the nation into a humane and Progressive state. Help KPFT 90.1 FM with its $240,000 Spring Fund Dr.
We must keep Resistance Radio on air. Please CONTRIBUTE NOW to support Progressive media. All radio hosts volunteer their time and support. All contributions go directly to KPFT 90.1 FM securely.
