Petition to MA Gov. Baker, Attn Gen Healey, Sen. Markey, Sen. Warren, Rep. Keating

SHUT MASSACHUSETTS PILGRIM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT NOW!

We are petitioning you to demand the Nuclear Regulatory Commission close Pilgrim now!  Not in 2019! THE REAL Entergy narrative is not “Pilgrim nuclear plant will shut by mid-2019; (Page A1, Oct. 14), but the fact it will continue to operate a degraded and dangerous nuclear reactor for profit for four more years. This is still unacceptable. The primary issue surrounding Pilgrim is neither energy nor economics: It is public safety. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has rated Pilgrim as one of the worst operating reactors in the country, continuously downgrading the reactor for years. We are now in a critical battle between money and profit over public safety, accountability, and unacceptable risks. Pilgrim needs to be closed now, not in 2019! It is now official!  The NRC has designated Entergy's Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth, MA one of the three worst reactors in the country.  The recent inspection includes additional oversight with the potential issuance of an order to close Pilgrim.  Previous inspection reports have consistently shown a lack of follow through which have lead to multiple equipment failures and repeated emergency scrams. You must not wait for yet another failed inspection.  Our lives, families, and communities depend on your action now. We, the signatories, petition you to demand the NRC immediately shut down Pilgrim now and begin decommissioning.  It is your duty as our elected representative. Only this action will insure the safety of all citizens, and preserve our properties and institutions. These are the recipients: Senator Edward Markey    conor_cahill@markey.senate.gov Senator Elizabeth Warren    casework@warren.senate.gov Representative William Keating   Michael.Jackman@mail.house.gov Governor Charlie Baker       katie.cunningham@state.ma.us Attorney General Maura Healy     agoweb@state.ma.us

Petition to Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Charles Schumer

Real people NEED 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.  DON'T LEAVE 25,000,000 PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. SAVE OBAMACARE/ The Affordable Care Act!
