Did You Miss Any of Our July Releases?

If you missed any of our videos in July, here's a recap:
Was America Founded to be Secular?
Did America's Founding Fathers want America to be secular or religious? In this video, Joshua Charles, best-selling author and historian, explains.
School Choice Saved My Life
Denisha Merriweather, who was saved by school choice, explains why it can pull millions of low-income students out of desperate situations.
Black, Millennial, Female, and... Conservative
Antonia Okafor voted for Barack Obama twice. Now, she's a staunch Republican. Why the huge turnaround? And how did her Democrat friends treat her when she "came out"?
Government Can't Fix Healthcare
The Democrats said Obamacare would fix our health insurance system, but it hasn't. Why not? And what will fix our healthcare system? Six-term Ohio Congressman Bob McEwen explains.
Taxes Are Killing Small Businesses
More than 85 million Americans directly depend on the success of small businesses, but the government hurts small businesses at every turn with taxes and regulations. Learn more in this video.
Why Did the Democratic South Become Republican?
Most Americans think the Democrats and Republicans "switched" in the 1960s, with the GOP implementing a "Southern Strategy" by appealing to racist whites. Is this narrative historically accurate? Carol Swain, Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University, explains.
The War on Cars
The automobile is a distinctive part of American culture. It's what allows individuals to go where they want and when they want. And that's exactly why progressives can't stand cars, but love trains and buses. Lauren Fix, "The Car Coach," explains the motives behind the "War on Cars."

What comes next

Your hard work since January is what defeated the repeal of Obamacare - a look back, and ahead.
Organizing for Action
Robert --

How did we get here? Late last Thursday, the Senate came one vote -- one single vote -- away from passing a health care bill that would have devastated the lives of millions of Americans.

The fact that it failed is an undeniable testament to you. To the calls you made, the letters you wrote, the rallies you attended. To the mantra we always believed in during the Obama administration: One voice can change a room.

But we got to this moment, quite simply, because every part of this process was wrong -- and understanding that will help us with an equally important question: What comes next?

There's only one answer: We work together to make people's lives better.

Mitch McConnell and Senate leaders wanted to help this administration score a win. Now is the time to forget about political points.

They wanted to draft the bill in secret committees and back rooms. Now is the time for transparency, debate, and an open process that seeks bipartisan solutions.

They wanted to ignore health care experts, doctors, insurers, hospitals, and worst of all, the American people. Now is the time to listen and solicit valuable feedback.

Here's what cannot happen next: an administration scheming to sabotage Obamacare, rooting for the failure of markets and pulling resources away that could help Americans get the relief they need.

It must be a real and honest attempt to help all Americans get access to quality, affordable health care.

That's the only way forward -- and to make sure they understand that, we need to keep standing strong:

Thank you,

Andy Slavitt
Former Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
