Tuesday Congressional Visits (Bangor)

May 9 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

ALL HANDS ON DECK TO SAVE HEALTH CARE!
House passage of the AHCA is literally a question of life and death.

With passage of the AHCA in the House, the battle for access to affordable healthcare will continue now in the Senate. And we need you!

This bill will put Americans directly in harm’s way by making health care inaccessible to people with pre-existing conditions. It will cost millions their health insurance–and thousands their lives. We’ll be clear: this bill is not a health care bill. It is a $600 billion tax break for the rich, paid for by cuts to Medicaid.

First, we will meet with Senator Collins’ State Office Representative, Carol Woodcock. We will tell Senator Collins to do all she can to save healthcare.

We will go down the hall to deliver the same message to Senator King.

Then join us as we mosey on down to Congressman Poliquin’s office. Here we will tell him that he voted for a bill that will cause people to die. We’ll give him all the reasons why and ask “How do you feel about that?”
