Job losses are mounting as millions of Americans file for unemployment. Amidst it all, our health care is still under attack, drug prices keep skyrocketing, and businesses keep closing.

At a time when our lives and our jobs are on the line, President Trump is picking fights on Twitter, ignoring his own health experts, and refusing to take responsibility for mishandling this crisis. This chaos has a price. We’ve had enough.

Dangerously unprepared to combat the coronavirus

Despite dire warnings from public health experts, President Trump failed to prepare America for the coronavirus pandemic. He has failed to stick to the facts. He has not listened to the experts charged with leading the response. He has failed to get doctors the supplies they need to protect themselves and save lives.

As a result, the virus is spreading, more Americans are dying, hospitals are stretched to the brink, and our economy is in freefall.

Health care costs are skyrocketing

As the country faces a public health and economic crisis, Americans are struggling to pay for the outrageously expensive medication they need to survive—and President Trump is doing very little to help. With premiums and drug costs increasing, too many working families are deciding between putting food on the table and paying for the health care they need.
