Five Takeaways from Yesterday’s Facebook Town Hall

Yesterday, Sherrod went live on Facebook for a Town Hall, taking questions from supporters across the country. Here’s what we learned:

1. It’s all about whose side you’re on.

As Sherrod put it, “We have a president who specializes in dividing people.” But if you love your country, you fight for the people who make it work. That’s how we won just last month—and it’s the blueprint for success in 2020.

 

2. Healthcare is a right—not a privilege.

We’ve made important progress thanks to the Affordable Care Act, but there’s more work to do to help as many people as possible access healthcare. In Ohio, millions have care now who didn’t have it before. This week’s court decision is an attack on Americans’ right to the care they need. It’s immoral, and Sherrod is committed to fighting back.

 

3. We need to make it easier for people to make their voices heard.

Voting rights were a major issue in races across the country this year. As Ohio Secretary of State, Sherrod focused on making it easier for people to vote. We need to take more steps like these, and fight back against Republicans’ efforts to make it more difficult for Americans to make their voices heard.

 

4. Sherrod will keep fighting Trump’s tax scam.

Just a few weeks ago, GM announced that they would be shutting down plants across the country, leaving thousands of hardworking people without a job. That’s the direct result of President Trump’s tax scam, which gives corporations a 50% off coupon to move jobs overseas. Sherrod is committed to fighting back.

 

5. Franklin is a very good dog.

After starring in a 2018 campaign ad, Franklin made another cameo in yesterday’s Town Hall.
