Yesterday, our President signed two Executive Orders that are nothing short of a reckless targeting of the most vulnerable Americans by gutting protections for pre-existing conditions, destabilizing the ACA marketplace, and allowing employers and health insurers to sell JUNK. This is nothing short of pure sabotage and a new low, even for this administration.

I'll never forget the day my teacher told me to stand up and read in front of my class. I was scared out of my mind, and stumbled through the reading. All the other kids laughed as I took my seat and tried to sink into the floor. Growing up with dyslexia I always thought I wasn't as smart as the other kids in my class. Now, I know that dyslexia doesn't determine someone's intelligence. It's a learning challenge, but you'll have a million challenges in life. My dyslexia has helped shape who I am today. I've learned new and different ways to learn and take in information. Ryan - thanks for talking with me, I can't wait to see what amazing things you take on! And remember, everyone deserves to #BeUnderstood!

Adrian Rodriguez Trump is a white supremacist. He's charging puerto ricans for evacuation. Those are god damm American citizens. He condemns black people kneeling more passionately than neo-nazis at Charlottesville.

Vi Ann La Baron Get rid of common core, no sharia crap allowed, no trying to leave little kids wanting to be another sex, & assist in home schooling financially should parents so desire!!!
Aaron Joseph But will you actually fund these promises? It's a compelling vision, but California has many of those, and is often unwilling to pay when push comes to shove. Instead of educating them, we are packing our prisons full of people.

“We knew it was coming. After Steph spoke up at media day on Friday, we figured it was just a matter of time until the president responded. Then on Saturday morning my wife, Margot, woke me up. “Here it is,” she said, and showed me Trump’s tweet. Our invitation, he wrote, “has been withdrawn” because, “going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team” and, “Stephen Curry is hesitating.” First off, I’m pretty sure Steph wasn’t “hesitating”. He made it clear he wouldn’t go. Second, as I joked to the media Saturday, it was like the president was trying to break up with us before we broke up with him. Regardless, it’s a shame. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet President Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, and Obama. I didn’t agree with all of them, but it was easy to set politics aside because each possessed an inherent respect for the office, as well as the humility that comes with being a public servant in an incredible position of power, representing 300 million people. And that’s the problem now. In his tweet to Steph, Trump talked about honoring the White House but, really, isn’t it you who must honor the White House, Mr. President? And the way to do that is through compassion and dignity and being above the fray. Not causing the fray. Would we have gone? Probably not. The truth is we all struggled with the idea of spending time with a man who has offended us with his words and actions time and again. But I can tell you one thing: it wouldn’t have been for the traditional ceremony, to shake hands and smile for cameras. Internally, we’d discussed whether it’d be possible to just go and meet as private citizens and have a serious, poignant discussion about some of the issues we’re concerned about. But he’s made it hard for any of us to actually enter the White House, because what’s going on is not normal. It’s childish stuff: belittling people and calling them names. So to expect to go in and have a civil, serious discourse? Yeah, that’s probably not going to happen. Look, I’m a basketball coach and what I do obviously pales in comparison to what the president does. But our jobs are similar in at least one respect: If you want to be an NBA coach, you need to be prepared to be criticized. You kind of know that going in. If I coach poorly and we lose the game, I hear about it. That’s okay. It’s really where we coaches earn our money, accepting and dealing with criticism and keeping the ship moving forward. There has to be an inherent understanding when you enter into any public position of power that this is what happens. People are going to take shots at you and it’s incumbent upon you to absorb those shots. Maybe you respond diplomatically, but you maintain a level of respect and dignity. What you can’t do is just angrily lash out. Can you imagine if I lashed out at all my critics every day and belittled them? I’d lose my players, I’d embarrass ownership, I’d embarrass myself. Pretty soon I’d be out of a job. It’s a basic adult thing that you learn as you grow up: People aren't always going to agree with you. And that’s OK. Instead, we get Trump’s comments over the weekend about NFL players, calling them ‘sons of bitches’ for kneeling during the anthem. Those just crushed me. Crushed me. Just think about what those players are protesting. They’re protesting excessive police violence and racial inequality. Those are really good things to fight against. And they’re doing it in a nonviolent way. Which is everything that Martin Luther King preached, right? A lot of American military members will tell you that the right to free speech is exactly what they fight for. And it’s just really, really upsetting that the leader of our country is calling for these players to be ‘fired.’ The hard part is knowing what to do now. Margot and I talked for a long time Saturday morning about what to say publicly. I’ve probably been as critical of Trump as anybody but maybe it’s time to take a different course. There’s no need to get into a war of words. It’s about trying to hang on to the values that are important to us as an organization, a country, and, really, as human beings. The fact is we live in an amazing country, but it’s a flawed one. I consider myself unbelievably lucky to live here, so please spare me the ‘If you don’t like it you can get out’ argument. I love living here. I love my country. I just think it’s important to recognize that we as a nation are far from perfect, and it’s our responsibility to try to make it better. And one of the ways to do that is to promote awareness and understanding and acceptance. Not just acceptance but embracing our diversity, which when you get down to it is not only who we are but truly what makes us great. And it’s not happening. Remember, the president works for us, not vice versa. We elected him. He doesn’t just work for his constituents and his base. He works for every citizen. Once you take that office, you have to do what’s best for the entire country. Sure, you’re going to have policies that align with your party, but that’s not the point. Respectfully, Mr. Trump, the point is this: You’re the president. You represent all of us. Don’t divide us. Bring us together. Steve Kerr”

Ensuring high-quality health care for every person has been a defining issue for my entire public life. I'm proud of John McCain for putting country before party and declaring his opposition to Graham-Cassidy. That being said, healthcare is a national crisis we must address appropriately. I believe that universal healthcare is the fundamental metric by which a civilized society must measure itself. It’s about our economy. It’s about social equity. It’s about human justice. And frankly it’s about time. The basic goal of any health system should be to provide care to those who need it, when they need it. We can never achieve that ideal when our system’s health decisions are based not on need, but on ability to pay. No country in the world pays more per capita for healthcare and receives less than the United States. I'm proud to be the first candidate for Governor in CA to announce my strong support for Sen. Sanders’ Medicare for All bill. But here’s the thing: I’m a Californian. And I don’t like waiting. I don’t like following. I like leading – and inviting other states to follow. We’ve lead on climate change, criminal justice reform, labor standards, minimum wage & immigrant rights. We'll do it again on healthcare. When I’m Governor, I will not wait for federal action – I will lead by example. Graham-Cassidy is a white flag of surrender on a national health care solution. A smash-and-grab raid on the working poor & the end of Medicaid. It is a disaster that will create an immediate health crisis for millions – that’s not me saying that, that’s the Assoc. of Health Plans. When it comes to matters of life and death, good enough just isn’t good enough. Californians are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Patients shouldn’t have to navigate an indecipherable labyrinth of pricing structures, co-pays and deductibles every time they see a doctor. Providers shouldn’t be forced to spend more time doing paperwork and data entry than they do seeing patients. It’s time for a new approach. Single payer offers a simpler, more effective, more cost-efficient approach to healthcare delivery in CA. I’m tired of politicians saying they support single payer but that it’s too soon, too expensive or someone else’s problem. I’ve been dealing with cynics and naysayers my entire career. The only limits on what California can achieve are our will and imagination. Don’t be fooled: we can create a system that provides comprehensive health benefits: mental, dental, eye & substance treatment for everyone, and we will do it in California. We can do all of this because we are California. We do things that are hard because we do things that are great. Our fight has just begun. Proud to have joined the California Nurses Association today as we discussed the fight ahead. We will not stop until everyone has access to healthcare, no matter their ATM balance.

Candace Marquez Mc Cain screwed his own constituents in AZ. All but one provider has pulled out in AZ leaving no choice and higher cost. In a right to work state the minimum wage is low so this will leave many without insurance.
Marcy McBride Thank you, Gavin. I can not for the life of me how people can not understand that we are a stronger nation when we are a healthier nation.
Tony Morse You can have universal health care for all, or you can have high quality health care for those who can afford it. You can't have both.

Matt Evans This is why California needs to pass its own healthcare. We cannot let others decide our future any longer. I hope our future Govenor Gavin Newsom will help push SB 562 through so that Californians can have Affordable Healthcare for All.

Couldn't agree more. California needs to take early childhood education seriously. That begins with emphasizing prenatal care and the first 3 years of a child’s life (when nearly 85% of brain development occurs) and continues with providing universal pre-school. Affordable high quality education and childcare is not only helpful for every child’s growth, but also for our state’s economic growth.

Prioritize children, campaign insists to Newsom, others in governor’s race

Advocates see an opening to call for more early childhood education funding.

Danielle Quick Henry Well, maybe if preschool didn't cost as much as a mortgage payment more people could afford it. Wait- people can't afford a mortgage either in this state being taxed to death for everything.
Jeanne Storton Just more brain washing by these brain dead politicians. Get them while they are babies. Look at what is coming out of public schools and liberal colleges now.
Chris Repcik Gavin but you okay with the gas tax? That's money people could use for better child care and early education.
Bambi Lopez If Sacramento cared about our own childens well being, they wouldn't be protecting illegal criminals! Crime is off the charts, and our law enforcement can't protect us because the Illegals have more rights than US Citizens.
Martin Monkewicz Does anyone really think it would be great if the Government took our children for 40 hours per week to teach them at an earlier age.

Sen. Cassidy said he would not support a bill that would discriminate based on pre-existing conditions. That's exactly what his bill does. Sen. Cassidy said he would not support a bill that did not guarantee coverage for all. That's exactly what his bill does not do. Sen. Cassidy said he would not support a bill that allowed for lifetime caps. That's exactly what his bill does. Call me crazy, but sounds like Sen. Cassidy has lied to us.
