Blumenthal Rally for Affordable Care Act
Nov

Blumenthal Rally for Affordable Care Act

  • Legislative Office Bldg, Room 1A (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

From Sen. Blumenthal's office: Please join Senator Blumenthal at 11 a.m. this Friday, November 17 at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford to rally against this cruel and regressive assault on the Affordable Care Act [in the Republican health care bill].

Eliminating the individual mandate will result in a ten percent hike in premiums and 13 million fewer Americans being covered by health insurance. This is added on top of what was already a bad deal for Connecticut families.

Please join Friday in saying that America is fed up with malicious and misguided policies that target middle class families. True tax reform should help all Americans get ahead. Until Republicans commit to a responsible, transparent, and bipartisan process – and pledge to protect the most vulnerable Americans – Senator Blumenthal will stand strong against this monstrous proposal.

Health Care Costs: Discussion w/ Office for the Health Care Advocate Ted Doolittle

Health Care Costs: Discussion w/ Office for the Health Care Advocate Ted Doolittle

Protect Our Care is co-hosting a discussion with the Office for the Health Care Advocate Ted Doolittle to discuss health care costs in the state.  

Why do American families have to pay twice as much for healthcare as our chief economic competitors in Europe and Asia, especially since the quality of care in those nations has become at least as good and in some ways better than American healthcare? With skyrocketing healthcare costs and other threats to our care on the horizon we invite you to attend the Office of the Healthcare Advocate Ted Doolittle speaking event. This event is sure to be inspiring and will set the stage for how we can tackle increasing healthcare costs in the state.
