For years, Republicans have said they want to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act. But right now, all they’re planning to do is strip 20 million Americans of their insurance and force millions more to pay higher premiums. There is no replacement plan in sight.
Republicans are about to Make America Sick Again and roll back the progress we’ve made with the ACA. This Sunday, Democrats across the country are holding rallies to save health care. Nancy Pelosi invites you to join hers.
Our First Stand: Rally to Save Health Care Sunday, January 15th at 1pm-2pm PST San Francisco City Hall Steps RSVP required
Together we can save affordable health care!

You may have heard about the “Professor Watchlist” being kept by Turning Point USA, whose mission—according to its website—is to “identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government.”
The Professor Watchlist site is a blacklist. Such lists have been used in the past to harass and intimidate faculty, and have a chilling effect on academic freedom and free speech. Last week, an AFT member in California who was on the watchlist received death threats after Republican operatives circulated a video of her briefly discussing the election in class.
We will not tolerate the policing of our colleagues’ work, thoughts and teaching. We will not accept a situation in which our colleagues are targeted with death threats because of their ideas.
