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
      Attorney General Jeff Sessions,  
A Threat to Our Civil Rights!

Trump AG appointee, former Senator Jeff Sessions, recently announced that he is reigniting the "war on drugs", ordering prosecutors to seek the toughest possible charges and sentences, even for minor drug crimes.  

"What he's really doing is declaring war on people of color because his harsh policies will eviscerate struggling black and brown families across America".   -- Benjamin Crump, a civil rights attorney who served as President of the National Bar Association and the National Civil Rights Trial Lawyers.

GRAY PANTHERS INVITES YOU TO HEAR
    Julie Hurwitz, Civil Rights Attorney
Partner, Goodman Hurwitz PC
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
