Join other Californians TODAY, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17th, to urge our California Congressional delegation to finish the job on health reform, kicking off a final push of 40 days of action.
From the rate hikes of Anthem Blue Cross of California, to growing number of uninsured and proposed budget cuts, California is central in this national debate, showing that the status quo is not an option.
Today, California residents and advocates for health reform, including Health Access California, Organizing for America, and Health Care for America Now (HCAN) – the nation’s largest health care campaign – will come together in Los Angeles, Modesto, and San Francisco, to send a strong message to Congress that it’s time to deliver on the promise to reform our broken health care system by finishing comprehensive health care reform now and finishing it right.
Wednesday’s rallies will serve to kick-off a “40 Days to the Finish Line” campaign throughout the state demanding Congress act now on health care reform and listen to everyday Californians, not the insurance lobbyists who are spending millions to block health care reform and protect their profits – while at the same time raising rates up to 39%.
In the 40 days leading up to Congressional Easter Break, Health Care for America Now will be urging Congressional Members and Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer to get a bill passed by the Spring recess. Thousands of concerned Californians will participate in daily actions and events over 40 days to show their support for health insurance reform now – sending a strong message to Members of Congress that the majority of Americans still support comprehensive health reform.
