Congressional Stakeouts to Save Health Care (Statewide)
March 16, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 5:30 pm
Let’s make sure that Susan Collins joins Senator King and Representative Pingree in coming out strongly against the GOP health care bill. Right now she is “concerned”, but we want her to be outraged for the 79,000 Mainers who will lose health insurance, and for the 1500% premium increase low income older rural people will suffer (latest estimates by the Maine Center for Economic Policy). Join a nationwide effort to reach out to the district offices of nine Republican Senators and 23 Republican Representatives who hold the decisive votes for peaceful “Stakeouts to Save Our Health Care” from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and Friday, March 16 and 17, when members of Congress return home for a scheduled “district work period”.
We’ll make sure that anyone coming in or out of the office—staff, visitors, the members of Congress themselves—have to come face to face with us, their constituents. Bring medical-themed props (slings, crutches, scrubs, stethoscopes), bring home-made signs, and bring your stories, your anger, and your hope!
