Statewide coalition to pass the national Green New Deal Resolution is demanding that our U.S. Congressional Representatives respond to the Covid-19 crisis with justice, not with bailouts for the oil and gas corporations. Read the statement sent to the Wa. congress representatives:

Naomi Klein
speaking at
Town Hall,
Seattle, Washington.

In a new video from The Intercept, author and activist Naomi Klein explains how the Trump administration and other governments across the globe are “exploiting” the corona virus outbreak “to push for no-strings-attached corporate bailouts and regulatory rollbacks,” and urges working people worldwide to resist such efforts and demand real support from political leaders during the ongoing crisis.

Klein, author of the 2007 book The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, notes that President Donald Trump has pushed for a payroll tax cut that could bankrupt Social Security; promised help to major polluters like airlines, cruise companies, and fossil fuel firms that are driving climate disruption; and met with executives of private health insurance companies—in the words of Klein, “the very ones who have made sure that so many Americans cannot afford the care they need.”

Trump attacks Medicare!

PSARA is a member of the Social Security works Washington Coalition. In response to Trump’s attack, the Coalition just sent the following letter to all Washington congressional representatives and senators.

Dear Representatives and Senators:
On October 3rd , 2019, President Trump issued an Executive Order(EO) entitled “Protecting and Improving Medicare for Our Nation’s Seniors.” Rather than “Protecting and Improving Medicare…” the EO threatens to do incalculable harm to present and future Medicare beneficiaries. Congress should take steps to equalize the two Medicare programs to assure that there is an end to discrimination against the Medicare recipients who choose the traditional Medicare program.

View the entire letter HERE.
