Trumpcare is a tax sham

Everything the GOP tried to do to the Affordable Care Act is now being put into their empty, hollow, anachronistic travesty of a tax-system overhaul and 25,000 Alaskans will lose medical coverage with it remanding the IRS “mandate” with 18,200 still to experience a tax increase!

It’s bad enough that The Trump Universe is trying to market justice, believing anything which gets the attention of his tiny-world (“majority?”) is the “good or right” thing to do, but now he attacks, pauperizes and degrades anyone who won’t live in that small-minded universe with him!

Join the rally to solicit our U.S. Senators to refuse this revision of the U.S. Constitution in front of Juneau’s Congressional Delegation Office, 800 Glacier Ave., at noon today and we’ll make sure Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan know we won’t stand for this devoluting dementia of our democracy!

John Sonin,
