Saving our Healthcare Rally - Raleigh

ACA-Here-2-Stay.jpgIt is now clear that Republican leaders in Congress will follow through on their threats to ram through a budget bill that will severely undermine the health care needs of the American people. Their budget will likely include:

Taking away health care coverage for over 30 million Americans by dismantling the health care system; Ending guaranteed Medicare benefits for millions of older Americans by converting Medicare into a voucher program; Slashing Medicaid and threatening the nursing home care of over 4 million vulnerable seniors; Increasing prescription drug prices more than $1,000 a year for over 5 million seniors and persons with disabilities; and Passing a $4,800 tax hike on millions of average Americans, while providing hundreds of billions in tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country.

Millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump after he promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.  He must be held to his promises and should veto any legislation which cuts these vital and necessary health programs.  

On Sunday, January 15th, ahead of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, there will be a day of action -- “Our First Stand: Save Health Care.” Rallies will be held around the country to vigorously oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare as we know it and throw our health care system into chaos.
