Rally to Support Affordable Care Act

Maine Can Do Better Rally to Save Health Care

Support the Affordable Care Act

Wednesday, January 19th, at 11:30am

On Monday, Maine Can Do Better postponed its Affordable Care Act rally in the wake of the assassination attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and the tragic loss of life in Tucson. The rally has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 19th, at 11:30am outside the State House.

Now, more than ever, we need to show Governor Lepage, Attorney General Schneider, the Maine Legislature, and Congress that Maine people want and support the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Will you join us at the rally?

Thanks to the ACA, children can no longer be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, insurance companies can no longer yank someone’s coverage when they get sick, young people can stay on their parent’s plans until they’re 26, everyone is eligible for free preventable care coverage and seniors pay less for prescription drugs.

Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act is under attack. Maine Governor Paul LePage and Maine Attorney General William Schneider plan to have the State of Maine join a politically motivated lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act. The U.S. House of Representatives is holding a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act and a bill has been submitted to the Maine Legislature that would make it illegal to enforce the Affordable Care Act.  If successful, these partisan steps to undermine this landmark health care reform puts the health care of thousands of Mainers in jeopardy.

We can’t let this happen.

Please join Maine Can Do Better for a Rally to Save Health Care on Wednesday, January 19th at 11:30am.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 19th at 11:30am

WHERE: Outside the State House in-between the State House and the Cross State Office Building in Augusta, Maine

WHO: Maine Can Do Better, concerned citizens, and you!
