Health Care (of course)
First of all - THANK YOU to all who contacted the Mayor of Houston (Plan of Action, June 19). Mayor Turner had been waffling on whether or not he would support a lawsuit brought by Houston City Council against the State of Texas to combat SB4, a hostile piece of legislation designed to tighten the net around immigrants. Mayor Turner and the Council have now decided they WILL bring a lawsuit. Nice to have a bit of good news!
Health Care Action:
Donald Trump has now famously declared the AHCA to be “mean” and said that the Senate bill should be “more generous”. For once he speaks truth!

Call your senators again, and explicitly reference the President’s comments. After all, he did campaign on a promise of universal, affordable healthcare, and the Senate should deliver a bill in keeping with the President’s campaign platform.
