Please join Senator Bernie Sanders via live video stream (from his solidarity rally in Michigan) and Lt. Governor David Zuckerman, Rights & Democracy, the Vermont Workers' Center, Vermont Health Care For All, Rainbow Umbrella Political Action Group, Justice For All, Vermont Center for Independent Living, Green Mountain Self-Advocates, SEIU Local 200United, Main Street Alliance of Vermont Action Fund, Vermont Progressive Party, Planned Parenthood Vermont Action Fund, Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals, VPIRG, Vermont State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Vermont Interfaith Action, Black Lives Matter Vermont and other communities across our nation in standing up to the Republican threats to Medicaid and Medicare. Our own Senator Sanders will be speaking at a solidarity rally in Michigan.

In Vermont, we will oppose the Republican effort to defund the health care system, end Medicare as we know it, slash Medicaid funding, and, ultimately, jeopardize the health care of America’s seniors, nursing home residents, middle class, and low income families. Speakers will include Lt. Governor Zuckerman and Dr. Deb Richter of Vermont Health Care For All.

As Lt. Governor Zuckerman has explained, “we can’t sit idly by while they take away health care coverage for over 30 million Americans by dismantling the health care system and ending guaranteed Medicare benefits by converting Medicare into a voucher program.”

On January 15th, please join us and Americans around the country in this day of action!
