Health Care Poem
Paul Felton, Gray Panthers Poet

Candidate Donald Trump has said
Better times for health care lay ahead
He stated it was a fact
He'd ditch the Affordable Health Care Act

He told us he had a plan 
To help every woman and man
But as it turn out he was lyin'
His plan was designed by Paul Ryan

His plan cost more and covered less
It sure created quite a mess
Even the "Freedom Caucus" sad NO
So they made it worse; it still was no go
                "How The Indivisible Movement Is                Fueling Resistance to the Trump Agenda"

10 a.m. May 20, 2017

Royal Oak Community Center
3500 Marais, Royal Oak

The Indivisible movement has become a new grass roots source of resistance to the Donald Trump agenda.  It works to influence members of Congress by peppering lawmakers at town halls, meeting with members of Congress at their offices and making coordinated phone calls on issues.   Come hear Karen Houghton, a leader of one of the 40 registered Indivisible groups in Michigan, half of them in southeast Michigan.

As folks in cities big and small
Went in huge numbers to Town Halls
And made Republicans shake with fear
About their election chances next year

And so their awful plan went down
And Trump can only wear a frown
Perhaps this is the time to call
For Single Payer -- Medicare for All
