Trump's new attack on health care is about to send our premiums through the roof--causing 1 million people to lose their insurance in 2018. He just announced he's cutting off "cost-sharing reductions" (CSRs), which will throw the market into chaos and jack up premiums for everyone else--by 20% next year alone.
But there's good news: bipartisan anger over Trump's decision is brewing, and a Congressional deal to restore the funding in the works. But we don't yet have enough support. That's where we come in--if we spread the word about what CSRs are and why we need Congressional action, Congress will hear us and protect our care from Trump's sabotage. Can you share this graphic?
