Paul Ryan cannot find time in the US House’s busy schedule to hold a Floor vote on DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals). But you know what he DID find time for on the House Floor tonight?
A vote to strip the funding from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Yeah, killing kids by ending their access to doctors is what the House Republicans want to do now to American citizen children.
JUST IN: On a party-line vote, @HouseGOP passed the Trump-GOP rescissions package that eliminates Children's Health Insurance Program funding and cuts programs that create jobs & strengthen communities. pic.twitter.com/S70haZgZEe

Meanwhile, this is what they’re doing to the kids of people who apply for asylum AT THE US BORDER
ICE confirms detainees from Southern border relocated to federal prison in SeaTac, WA. @NWIRP believes many of them are mothers seeking asylum, separated from children in Texas. @GovInslee @AGOWA @RepJayapal demand answers from ICE. @KIRO7Seattle >>https://t.co/zIgUU32tY0

When our grandchildren talk about this era, in the future, they’ll be wondering what we did to fight against these horrors. I hope you have YOUR story documented to show that when it came time to stand up and be counted, you did.
Oh — and the Senate has to vote to end CHIP, too — so don’t let them.
Call your Senators (202) 224-3121
Even if they’re both Democrats and you know they would crawl thru glass before voting to end funding for CHIP, and urge them to refuse to vote for this piece of shit legislation.
