Call To Arms
Wondering if Donald Trump is still obsessed with destroying anything linked to his predecessor? Here's your answer.
Unable to kill the Affordable Care Act outright via his toadies in Congress, Trump is trying other methods. His latest: Cut money for Obamacare's marketing, just as we're entering the fall enrollment season. He apparently thinks that if people don't know about healthcare coverage, they won't sign up.
And it's not a run-of-the mill budget reduction, mind you. Trump slashed the ad funds by 90 percent, and took $23 million from Obamacare's in-person outreach program. This isn't cutting, it's gutting.
So here's your chance. If you have a blog or are active on other social media — and you hate Donald Trump — it's time to get even by promoting the hell out of Obamacare. (Open enrollment for coverage in 2018 starts on November 1 and ends December 15.)
We cats will do a boatload of blog posts to remind everyone when to enroll and how. We hope you'll join us. And if you're on Twitter — oh, especially Twitter — that would be a great way to spread the word, too. If we had thumbs, we'd never put down our phones. We cats PURR.
