A vast majority of artists don’t have any long-term plans. Once new music is ready, they jump straight to hiring a publicist or a radio promoter without considering all of the other crucial pieces that make up a solid foundation, and this never yields the long-term impact that was expected.
Imagine If you had a REAL PLAN in place that outlined exactly what to do for the next 6, 12, 18 months?Wouldn’t you feel empowered and prepared vs. overwhelmed and reacting to the next thing?

Organizing for Action

Last night, House leaders introduced their bill to repeal Obamacare.

Simply put, it is unacceptable. It will slash the financial assistance that millions need to afford health insurance. It effectively ends the Medicaid expansion that allowed working families and millions more kids, seniors, and disabled Americans to finally have access to health care. The bill will drive up consumer costs, forcing families to pay more for less -- and will once again leave Americans with chronic illnesses at the mercy of insurance companies.

This is not a plan.

Call out the recklessness of these leaders in Congress -- sign the petition now.

Regardless of the colossal disaster that would result from this bill, congressional leaders are still trying to rush it through -- trying to force the first votes on it before Congress' own non-partisan analysts have a chance to calculate the damage it would cause.

That's because they know if the American people find out how embarrassingly inadequate this replacement attempt is, they wouldn't be able to show their faces from the shame. Americans will end up losing coverage under this bill -- period.

They have broken every single promise they made. Covering more people? No. Better coverage? Nope. People with pre-existing conditions protected? Not likely -- with new penalties for gaps in coverage and the removal of policies that keep more healthy people in the insurance market, they can't guarantee it.

This scheme is irresponsible and cruel. People's health care isn't a political game -- there are lives on the line here. We cannot let congressional leadership rush through a bill that rips health coverage away from millions of people without a heck of a fight.

Speak up now.

Take the first step in joining this fight right now by signing OFA's petition to protect Obamacare.
