Gary Peters on health care: “I put it all an the line to make (the ACA) happen, so don’t question my motivations here.”

Michigan Senator Gary Peters held a town hall meeting today at Eastern Michigan University. As it was just announced yesterday evening, attendance was relatively sparse.

The final push to kill Obamacare is underway. We need to mobilize.

I know it sucks. I know we shouldn’t have to defend the America Cares Act again, after having successfully defeated repeal efforts several times already, but the Republicans have apparently reneged on their promise to move forward with a bipartisan process, instead opting to try one last time to repeal Obamacare outright, without debate, or […]
