FLIP THE 49TH: Town Hall this week on the Federal Budget!

388 DAYS TO THE 2018 MID-TERM ELECTION

View this email in your browser
Help us pressure Issa to attend the Town Hall on October 17! 
As of Saturday, Issa hadn't responded to our invite, so we turned up the heat with a mobile billboard truck driving through District 49. You can help by posting the photo on social media. Use #darrellissa and #townhall so media (especially Rachel Maddow!) can find them!


Maddie is still collecting letters on social justice issues to bring to Issa in D.C. in November.

Legislative Update

The House is not in session this week.

UPDATE ON THE ACA: Indeed, it is true. The jackass in the White House took two steps to destabilize the ACA last week. He pulled the federal subsidies out from under the ACA. This means that everyone’s prices are going to go up. He also signed an executive order that makes it possible to buy a plan that does not have to follow ACA rules and is cheaper. SO, here’s the deal. Covered CA is suggesting that you compare plans within Covered CA AND that you also check around to see if you can buy a cheaper health plan directly through insurance companies that cover your health care system. The renewal period has begun for Covered CA BUT open enrollment for individual plans outside of Covered CA does not start until Nov 1st for many plans. So, you won’t be able to compare prices untill then.

A small action we can all take is to make sure everyone knows who is doing the damage to the ACA: the jerk in Washington. When/if it implodes, Trump is going to blame Obama even though he is the one who made the irresponsible decisions that will affect millions of Americans. (Full disclosure: the writer of this blurb has been on an ACA plan since it started so for those of you who also are, I feel your pain.)

Other Updates
This Pop-up Protest on Health Care made the local news this week on KUSI. UCSD students and veterans rallied against Donald Trump's executive order that guts important and crucial aspects of the ACA. They also called out Rep. Darrell Issa's voting record to sabotage health care coverage for his constituents.
