WHAT: A rally/press conference in front of Congresswoman Tenney’s office
WHERE: 555 French Rd, New Hartford
WHEN: Monday, April 10th at 4 PM
WHO: Citizen Action of New York, SEIU 1199, Central NY Citizens in Action, Inc.
WHY: The American Healthcare Act is back! The revived measure, known informally on Capitol Hill as Zombie Trumpcare, attempt to take away more items from the Affordable Care Act, on top of all the bad things that the original legislation proposed. To quote the Greater NY Hospital Association, “Congress is negotiating a bad bill to make it worse”. They want to gut the “Essential Benefits” that insurers are required to provide in their insurance products. Eliminating these benefits will make the Affordable Care Act ineffective towards its goals of getting people health insurance and providing the necessary care.
We will send a message to Congresswoman Tenney – WE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT! Don’t touch our healthcare!
Hope to see you all on Monday (where the temperature is supposed to be 70 degrees!)
