    In a major step forward in the fight for universal health care, the American Medical Association (AMA) has quietly pulled out of a lobbying group that seeks to undermine the growing support for Medicare For All.

    “The AMA has made the right – if overdue – call by leaving the Partnership For America’s Health Care Future, and to stop giving their credibility to this effort by big corporations to put profits before people’s health,” said George Goehl, the director of People’s Action, one of the nation’s largest networks of multiracial grassroots groups, which has made the fight for Medicare For All a top priority.

    In April, nearly a thousand People’s Action members took over the lobby of the Partnership’s offices in Washington, D.C., to demand that the PAHCF and its member organizations end opposition to universal health coverage.

    “We’re here because we’ve had enough,” wrote Goehl and Maria Elena Letona, the board president of People’s Action Institute, in a letter the activists delivered to the PAHCF. “We’re calling on PAHCF to immediately cease and desist from all attempts to undermine Medicare For All, and join us in the fight to ensure that health care is a right for everyone.”

    The PAHCF was formed in 2018 by the nation’s largest drugmakers, insurance companies and private hospitals, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, the Federation of American Hospitals and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) to oppose Medicare For All. The AMA was a founding member of the organization.

    Despite its benevolent-sounding name, this Partnership was formed with the express intent to kill momentum towards universal health coverage. The PAHCF spent $148 million on lobbying members of Congress in 2018 alone, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

    The PAHCF has spent millions more this year on lobbying and ads against Medicare For All, including $200,000 on television ads in Iowa alone this month – an effort to influence the views of presidential candidates and voters in that early caucus state.

    In June, People’s Action activists from the Jane Addams Senior Caucus, Physicians for a National Health Care Program and Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP) occupied the main floor of AMA’s national convention in Chicago to demand they end their opposition to Medicare For All.

    “I have to believe that if the members of the AMA can see the faces – our faces – and hear our voices, the voices of those directly affected by the denial of care, they will come around and demand that their organization support Medicare For All,” said Reggie Griffin, a 78-year-old member of the Jane Addams Senior Caucus, who participated in the AMA “die-in.”

    AMA members did listen as People’s Action members – some in wheelchairs – held the floor and gave personal testimonies about how they have been harmed by our country’s failed health care system.

    And now Reggie’s words seem to have been prophetic, as the AMA has pulled out of the PAHCF. On August 15, the AMA’s logo quietly disappeared from their website, and the group later confirmed to POLITICO that it was no longer part of this anti-Medicare For All organization.

    “They caved to the hard left, plain and simple,” a representative of one of the PAHCF’s other member organizations told POLITICO. “This is about members of the AMA, not members of the partnership.”

    While People’s Action, the Jane Addams Senior Caucus and other member groups welcome the AMA’s change of heart, they won’t back down – because they know their work is far from over.

    “We’re glad the AMA has finally seen the light, and has stepped aside in the best interest of everyone – patients and physicians,” said Connie Huynh, who helped organize the protests in Washington and Chicago, and leads People’s Action’s ‘Health Care for All’ campaign. “But we won’t rest until everyone has the health care we all need and deserve: Medicare For All.”

  • Storm Ready
    August 16 "Jesus said, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house on the rock…” Matthew 7:24 Listen to today's Devotional

    Jesus was a carpenter, so we can be confident that He knew how to build a house. He knew that a house had to have a solid foundation, so it would stand when the storms came. Jesus also knew that building a life is like building a house.


    If you build your life on the Rock of Jesus Christ, with Him as your foundation, and according to His principles, when storms, stress and tribulation come – and they will come – your life will stand - in this world and through all eternity.


    Take some time and examine your life and see if it’s storm ready. https://mailchi.mp/3a25a83208c6/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452813?e=9cbe669f39

  • Amen
    August 15 “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Consistency in the Christian walk does not come easily. Just knowing right and wrong is not enough. Our old nature continues to battle with our new nature. When we strive to live for Christ in our own power, our will is too weak and our efforts fall short.

    The key to consistency and victory in the Christian life begins with understanding that when we said “Yes” to Jesus, we moved from death to life, from old to new.


    In Christ we are new creations, alive to God and freed from the power of sin. Now that deserves an “Amen!” https://mailchi.mp/3792e8715c8b/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452809?e=9cbe669f39

  • The New York Post yesterday blasted Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.

    They were upset about a video we did about a cop who was shot while chasing a fella through the hood. We asked a cop to write a commentary about what was really happening and it got a ton or reaction.

    So much so that the head of a New York Police Union sent it to its members saying it was the best video of its kind he had ever seen!

    And his union members should listen to “every word of it.” https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1008440704307486720

    August 14 “For every beast of the forest is Mine, the cattle on a thousand hills.” Psalm 50:10
    Listen to today's Devotional

    In the state of Texas, to hear about someone who has the cattle on a thousand hills gets attention! But what is God really saying here?

    Although the Israelites were faithfully bringing their sacrifices to God He recognized they were merely going through the motions. In essence, He told them “I don’t need your sacrificial animals. All animals are Mine!”


    What God wanted was their hearts. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves going through the motions just like the Israelites.

    Ask God to give you a heart for Him, and then give it right back to Him in your heartfelt worship. https://mailchi.mp/9bf1a100e252/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452805?e=9cbe669f39

  • Worship
    August 13 “Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” Psalm 95:6
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Centuries ago our word “worship” was expressed as two words in English, “worth-ship”. The idea behind this Old English expression was that God’s glory, majesty and holiness made Him so “heavy” that a man would have to bend his knees, bow his head and lower his eyes under such a holy load.

    In other words, the “weightiness” of God should bring us low before we lift His name on high and acknowledge and proclaim His worth. The next time you bow down and kneel before God, take a moment to feel His holy weight. Then worship Him with awe and reverence! https://mailchi.mp/a8f936e44082/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452801?e=9cbe669f39

  • Secure place
    August 12 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust! Psalm 91:1-2 Listen to today's Devotional

    In times of trouble, we all want a safe and secure place. Psalm 91 assures us that such a place exists and is available to those who trust in God.
    A look at the four names of God used in our verses helps us better understand this powerful security.

    The “Most High” is El Elyon, the God who possesses everything.
    “The Almighty” is El Shaddai, the God who provides all things.
    “The Lord” is Jehovah, the God of promise.
    And “my God” is Elohim, the God of all power.

    So, when trouble comes, run to the shelter of God. It’s the most secure place you can be. https://mailchi.mp/06e8a17a2ad7/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452797?e=9cbe669f39
