There’s a healthcare-related demonstration planned for this Saturday that might be of interest to you. GOP Rep Mark Meadows, who orchestrated the AHCA vote in the US House, will be giving a keynote speech at a conservative conference. NC AIDS Action Network, Progress NC Action, and Action NC are co-sponsoring a protest outside the hotel where the conference is happening.
We’ll meet at 2:30pm. We’ll talk to the press at 2:45pm. We’ll line the sidewalk in front of the hotel where Meadows will speak until about 3:30pm.
Polling consistently shows that both the TrumpCare bill that passed the US House and the bill cooking in secret in the US Senate are very unpopular with the public.
So come Saturday! Show support for the Affordable Care Act. Hold Congress, Mark Meadows, and the Tea Party acceptable for their plan to push TrumpCare and cut health insurance from tens of millions of people, all to pay for billions of dollars in tax cuts for those at the top.
Please share this event as well. As always, more is always merrier.
We’ll have snacks, water, and snappy signs to hold the Tea Party accountable, all along some shady sidewalk just outside the hotel event.
Should be impactful… and FUN!
