Will we see you at a Save our Health Care rally? ~ @BernieSanders

Friends of Bernie Sanders

Late Wednesday night, the Republicans took the first step toward repealing the Affordable Care Act. If they are successful in accomplishing what they want, 30 million people will be thrown off of health care, Medicaid will be decimated, Medicare will be privatized and prescription drug costs will go up for seniors. And, by the way, the top 2 percent will receive $346 billion in tax breaks.
We must not allow that to happen. We must fight back. Please join me, Democratic senators and members of Congress, trade unionists, senior citizen and health care advocates at over 40 rallies all across the country.
Together, we can send a powerful message that we are not going to let Donald Trump and the Republican Congress get away with their horrific attack against the working families of this country. House and Senate Democrats stand 100 percent united in the fight to save health care. Please take a look at the email Bernie sent earlier this week with your event details and RSVP today.

The new right-wing Republican Congress is off and running. At a time when the United States remains the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all as a right, the Republicans want to end the Affordable Care Act (ACA), throw nearly 30 million people off of health insurance, make massive cuts to Medicaid and defund Planned Parenthood. At the same time, in the midst of a grotesque and growing level of income and wealth inequality, they want obscene tax breaks for the top one-tenth of 1 percent.
Our message to the Republicans is simple and straight forward. You are not going to get away with it. You are not going to punish the elderly, disabled veterans, the children, the sick and the poor while you reward your billionaire friends.
On Sunday, January 15, Democratic members of Congress, trade unions, senior groups, health care activists and all those who believe in economic and social justice are organizing a day of action called “Our First Stand: Save Health Care.” Rallies will be held in communities around the country.
Here's the information for a rally happening near you:
