Next Up Tax Reform, Funding CHIP and Helping Puerto Rico

We managed to push back efforts to Repeal and Replace the Affordable Care Act. Well done. Now we must fight efforts to sabotage it while monitoring the tax reform efforts and working to force Congress and the Trump Administration to help Puerto Ricans. 

We need to hold Congress accountable for not renewing the CHIP, children's health insurance plan, before funding ran out. 

In other words, no rest for the weary. We hope you did celebrate killing the bill last week and took that much needed deep breathe, because it's time to roll those sleeves back up and get back to work. 

Reuters has an interesting article on the tax reform efforts. Please be sure to read it, https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-tax-fiscal/rich-would-benefit-most-from-trump-tax-cut-plan-policy-group-idUSKCN1C42C8. Get informed. 

And, let's not forget about issues on the state and local levels. We have gerrymandering to fight and voting machines to replace. Not to mention, we also have elections, issues and candidates to learn about. Let's get busy.
