Workers aren’t seeing the $4K raises that the GOP promised the tax law would bring. “Instead, as the U.S. Labor Department reported, between the second quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2018, the real wages of American workers actually declined.”

Republicans are actively working to eliminate protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions. If President Trump and the GOP have their way, insurance companies will again be able to discriminate against you because of your medical history.

75% of Americans want to keep health care provisions that Republicans are trying to overturn. President Trump and the GOP may tell you they will maintain pre-existing condition protections, but they support a lawsuit that seeks to undo those safeguards.

These are the kind of inadequate, discriminatory, junk health insurance plans that President Trump wants Americans to buy.
