Leaked Draft of Trump’s Religious Freedom Order Reveals Sweeping Plans to Legalize Discrimination | The Nation

This I will leave for the entire day tomorrow. Please read the ENTIRE article and draft, it is a draft and I believe it is real. If this is what folks/our country is up to, we have gone to far. Can you imagine what we could all do in sports, denying children’s right to participate in junior clubs, in coaching and in officiating. Deny adults access to administrative, coaching and officiating opportunities in both public and private sectors. We are not even talking about education, military, health care. This is wrong, there is no discussion with me, it is wrong. One has to hope and pray that our Judicial body stays firm on the laws of our constitution. This is also why Senator McConnell, our speaker, must not change the 60 vote threshold requirement on Supreme court nominees. Our judicial body is our final front, hopefully in two years we can get a more balanced executive branch that every government needs.

If signed, the order would create wholesale exemptions for people and organizations who claim religious objections to same-sex marriage, premarital sex, abortion, and trans identity.

Nate Bell, GOP Lawmaker, Wants To Stop Educating Arkansas’ Uninsured About Obamacare

I think it should be and is a crime to prevent people who need and have a right to health care from getting access to it.  Just as it should be a crime from preventing a child from getting an education at a public school.  Can you imagine not letting folks know their is a school they can go to for the education of their children.  It is insane to me. How about not letting seniors know how to access social security benefits.  Insane again. The most at risk people he is preventing from getting affordable health care that could save their or their children’s lives.  Due is his apparent lack of knowledge, it costs the US more for these folks to go uninsured than to have ACA.  Having folks show up in emergency rooms must be something he thinks is good for America.
