PROGRESS HIGHLIGHTS:

 

Pay Your Taxes TODAY!

(aka “Patriotic Contributions of your Fair Share to sustain American Democracy”)

http://www.whitehouse.gov/2013-taxreceipt

*** 4/15 Healthcare.gov Special Enrollment Deadline **


Missed the
healthcare.gov deadline? It’s not over until it’s over!

 

If you claim you tried to #getcovered by 3/31 but didn’t finish you can submit a special enrollment through next week:

https://www.healthcare.gov/how-can-i-get-coverage-outside-of-open-enrollment

Do it for Charlene Dill and 17,000+ others who are projected to die because of REJECTED FEDERAL MONEY for Medicaid that will leave them without the care they need.

I’m sure thousands of others will be affected because they could sign up but didn’t so maybe you can save your life OR a friend’s life for the equivalent of your cable bill or LESS.
