Right now we have a reprieve on behalf of Americans who need and deserve health care. But we know this is just the beginning. Over the past few weeks Iowa Citizen Action Network has been reaching out to Iowans – small business owners, farmers, families, the self-employed, seniors and others – and what we are hearing is that health care is a major concern for them and that the plans being proposed in Washington DC are frightening and are having a destabilizing effect on our communities.
So those in Washington can’t fool us. We know that even though Republican Members of Congress have failed dozens of times in their efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, they are still working for the rich and big business by proposing massive tax breaks for the wealthiest and the rest of us pay the price.
