So, the GOP wants to repeal and replace the ACA, taking health coverage from 22 million Americans? We will fight back and settle for nothing less than health care for all! On July 24th, we will meet at the steps of the Capitol Building in order to march with people around the nation who believe that no person or corporation should profit off of sickness.

Even under the ACA, 28 million Americans have no health insurance. Multiple studies demonstrate that having no insurance increases the risk of death in our country. Our infant mortality rate is shameful compared to other countries that have embraced a single payer system. Our pharmaceutical prices are outrageous. Our health care costs bankrupt us. Our children, our families, and our communities suffer more health problems then they need to. We have the resources and technology to take care of us all (see https://www.democracynow.org/2017/6/27/senate_gop_healthcare_bill_estimated_to).

With the repeal of the flawed and partially defunded ACA on the horizon, and the abhorrent plans to replace it with something that is not care, but a tax cut for the wealthy, it’s time to let Congress know we wish to have health care for all people like all other modern industrialized nations. pirmits have not be granted as of yet, but have been applied for. We will say a few short words at sylvester park and then march up to the capitol legislative building. Speakers will speak until the end of the event.
