TT Digest: Clean power, Obamacare success, and more

Truth Team
Diane --

Here's some recommended reading that's easy to share. No fluff, just facts -- that's the Truth Team way.

What's inside the TPP
Politico // Michael Grunwald

The deal would eliminate all tariffs on U.S. manufacturing exports to TPP countries, and most on U.S. agricultural exports -- everything from plastics to poultry, seafood to steel, chemicals to cotton, apples to aircraft parts

Wind and solar keep getting cheaper and cheaper
The Washington Post // Chris Mooney

A new analysis suggests that we continue to move into a world in which it makes more economic sense to draw electricity from the sun or the winds, rather than from fossil fuels.

The Congressman Who Restricted Gun Violence Research Has Regrets
The Huffington Post // Sam Stein

Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Ark.) authored the controversial 1996 amendment that remains in place. He wishes Congress would change it.

Op-Ed: Clean Power Plan in Virginia
The Richmond-Times Dispatch // Governor Terry McAuliffe

The Clean Power Plan now presents Virginia with a real opportunity to make clean energy a pillar of our future economic growth and a meaningful part of our energy portfolio.

Obamacare's Medicaid Expansion Is Helping The Uninsured -- Where It's Allowed To
The Huffington Post // Jeffrey Young, Nicky Forster, Hilary Fung and Alissa Scheller

The Affordable Care Act's chief aim is to extend coverage to people without health insurance. One of the 2010 law's primary means to achieve that goal is expanding Medicaid eligibility to more people near the poverty level. But a crucial court ruling in 2012 granted states the power to reject the Medicaid expansion.

This movement is powered by small-dollar donations from organizers across the country. Chip in today to help keep it going.
