How low are you when you use memories of your sick mother and child to try and raise money?
President Obama refused to give up on this legislation because he knew it was about real people — people like his own mother who, in her final days, battled cancer and mounting bills, or my daughter Lauren, whose intractable epilepsy, at just seven months old, nearly bankrupted our family and burdened her with a pre-existing condition that threatened her future coverage.
Today, there are millions of families like ours who won’t have to suffer through needless heartache over situations beyond their control.
If the President loses, Republicans are guaranteeing those protections will be gone with him.
So enough about dead mom and sick kid, send us money now!
You can make sure that doesn’t happen. Donate $5 or more before this Friday’s critical FEC deadline.
When the Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act, I was moved to tears. This week, the Republicans are moving a lot of people to act as well — to make sure they can’t take their destructive platform to the White House.
He’ll really be moved to tears come November 6.
This actually isn’t the first time he used his sick kid. Howcontemptible.
Meanwhile, just as Paul Ryan was taking the stage last night, the desperate Democrats send their 849th pitch for money from just this week alone.
James Carville is right. Paul Ryan, the Tea Party wonder boy, is speaking tonight in front of his biggest fans. And when they hear his Obama-bashing speech, the money will pour in to defeat President Obama and Democrats nationwide.
Tea party wonder boy? Is that they best they’ve got? Oh, and the money will pour in? You bet it will: To the Romney-Ryan campaign.
