(6/28) National Healthcare Day of Action: Save Medicaid! - Rights and Democracy VT

(6/28) National Healthcare Day of Action: Save Medicaid!

Join Rights & Democracy for a rally and press conference to denounce the GOP attack on Vermonters' healthcare. Hear from the people most affected by the deep cuts to Medicaid. 

Speakers will include representatives from US Senator Bernie Sanders' office, the Vermont Office of Health Care Ombudsman, and other organizations to be announced. The event will be emceed by Jessica Early, RN, the lead healthcare organizer at RAD.

Hear the stories of those most impacted by these devastating plans to gut Medicaid and other healthcare protections.

The Senate bill would cut $600-plus Billion from Medicaid nationally, and wield a devastating blow to our state's Medicaid system, which covers 206,000 people— including nearly half of all of Vermont's children.

To keep our promises to those residents—elderly, children, and low-income folks—Vermont will need to raise an additional $2 Billion over the next 10 years to maintain current coverage levels through our expanded Medicaid programs.

Learn more about how you can fight back against this bill right now!

Stay tuned for additional details on Wednesday's event.
