    It makes no sense, there is no logic, to repealing the ACA unless there is a ready-to-go viable alternative. Privatization of health care accounts is not viable.

    Please register my deep concern about the unauthorized changes President Trump is making to the National Security Council. I oppose Steve Bannon's presence on the NSC and the reorganization that President Trump has initiated. Please take action to prevent this reorganization and appointment.

    Please be reminded that there are 47,000,000 people (ie voters) over the age of 65. There are over 41,000,000 aged 55-64 years. If you mess with our Medicare and Social Security we WILL vote you out of office with concentrated effort.

    Please vote against defunding planned parenthood. The services they provide are essential especially to low and middle income families.

    The House Republican Conference vote to gut the Congressional Ethics Committee was a disgrace. We need more oversight, not less.

    Please reject Jeff Sessions for AG. Not an appropriate choice. As a nation, we deserve better.
