Friday, January 20th - Stand with John Lewis
The Affordable Care Act is under threat from congress, who have taken the first steps to repeal by passing a budget reconciliation bill. This law provides insurance for 20 million people that wouldn't have it otherwise and has lead to the lowest uninsured rate in America in history. No small portion of that 20 million would be dead without the ACA.
Ask your Representative to Stand with John Lewis
John Lewis and approximately 30 other members of Congress have elected to skip the inauguration to make it clear that this presidency is not normal. If your Representative isn't on the list, call him or her and ask why and urge them to skip the inauguration and join the Women's March.
