RALLY TO SAVE HEALTHCARE
At the end of December, Democratic leaders Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi joined with the Democratic Outreach leader Bernie Sanders to announce a series of Days of Action – national events with a focus on supporting programs that help working families. The Democratic Congressional members will do the local organizing and share the information back to the Sanders organization for national coordination. Sunday, January 15th is the first Day of Action. These are rallies held in cities across the nation. Their focus is on saving health care and demonstrating support for the ACA. It’s also to show the Republican Congress the strength of our commitment to the ACA, Medicare, and Medicaid. However, there will be more, this is just the first stand.
‘OUR FIRST STAND’
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 to tell Republicans loudly and clearly: You are not going to get away with it.
