Seems like a divestment campaign would be useful- so many banks gave money to Williams. Especially for our small business owners and individual neighbors and families. We’re not the Koch brothers, but I’ll be damned if these business are going to use my hard-earned money to pay for a candidate who literally doesn’t care if his constituents live-or-die to lack of health-care. In college, I nearly died from *not* having health insurance coverage, and Roger Williams has gone on the record saying that everything was better the way things were before the ACA. Better for whom? I actually tried to get coverage, and 311 told me my options were either to have children (so I could be eligible for medicaid) or to find someone to marry who has health insurance…. Terrible ideas of what healthcare means.
Thousands of Williams’ own constituents are covered now that were not before. Plus the plans available for those not on ACA are better now than they were before— now if he wanted to expand coverage for more people, or talk about sensible ways to help even more people afford coverage, I’d love to hear it. So far, that has not been his stance.
