Petition to Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Charles Schumer

Real people NEED The ACA-Obamacare. Don't play politics with people's health and lives.

My wife has pre existing conditions. Before the blessing that is Obamacare came along, because of those life altering pre existing  conditions, we were only able to afford a health insurance policy that had a $10,000 deductible at a very high monthly premium. She couldn't afford to see doctors regularly and her health deteriorated.  I remember counting the days to Obamacare and spending most of the night, and many frustrating days following, struggling to sign up, and once we did, the smile on my wife's face, the sigh of relief that she too can see a doctor, and there was hope. I remember tears of relief and hope. We celebrated the peace of mind this brought us with a hug, a smile and a good nights sleep.  Today, there are tears again, fear instead of hope, anxiety instead of peace of mind, worries and sleepless nights (it is 3:42 am as I write this).  I hear politicians exclaiming, speaking indignantly, waving their fists and wagging their tounges all preaching about what will happen when 25,000,000 get cut and have no insurance, the outcry there will be.....well, we are those 25,000,000, we are each a human being , not a number. You know us, we are your family member, your neighbor, your Uber driver, your friend, your classmate from years ago, your acquaintance of today.... STOP using our plights for political fodder and for so much fist waving and speechifying!  STOP being resigned to the fact that there are not enough Democrats in the  Senate to stop this lunacy and reach out to Republican Senators who are thinking individuals and STOP the insanity! Senators McConnel and Schumer, do the hard work that is your job and that you know how  to do so well and make it known that this end of Obamacare tragedy and travesty will NOT happen. Don't let us suffer with anxiety and sleepless nights and worse ! For my wife, who is asleep as I write this while I am up worrying about her health and healthcare, for all of us , each one of us, real people - not numbers, DON'T wait to see and hear the outcry when 25,000,000 are left without insurance! Do the hard work of bringing sanity back now.  Our health, and our healthcare is not, and should not be a partisan issue! DON'T LEAVE 25,000,000 PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. SAVE OBAMACARE/ The Affordable Care Act! PS:  If you say there will be insurance available for those with pre existing conditions, you know that premiums  for those with any pre existing condition will  go back to being astronomically expensive and unaffordable and high risk pools are either unavailable, most don't meet criteria eligibility, and those that do see high costs and even higher deductibles.

Petition to Nathan Deal

Hold Judge (former D.A.) "Danny" Craig accountable for framing Michael C. Blocker for life

In January 2007, Augusta, Georgia District Attorney (now Judge) Danny Craig turned a burglary case into a high profile rape case without any evidence supporting a rape allegation. The rape trial came up during the 2008 election year. The State secured a guilty plea for a life sentence without defendant Michael C. Blocker's consent, without a DNA expert explaining the DNA report, and without any proof of violence. Judge Danny Craig had a separate family law case remanded by the Court of Appeals in June 2014.  Even Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Michael Bamberger described Augusta, Georgia as a confluence of power and privilege in April 2005 surrounding an excessive "30 years" sentencing influenced by District Attorney (now Judge) Danny Craig in the defendant James Lee Davis' "bogus badges" 2002 case. The Augusta, Georgia community has withstood Judge Danny Craig's power trip for over twelve years.  Enough is Enough. Judge Daniel J. Craig ran uncontested in 2016 which shows the fear of the power circle in Augusta, Georgia. Michael Christopher Blocker should be released immediately from false prisonment to be with his family or given a fair hearing in the Atlanta area. He was denied due process in 2008. The family's private attorney withdrew early without adequate notice and kept the family's money. The Georgia attorney general office says they are opposing counsel.  We have proved that Michael was a victim in a bait and switch conspiracy with gross prosecutorial misconduct from judge to district attorney. Please help get Michael released by signing this petition.
