Blumenthal Emergency Field Hearing

Blumenthal Emergency Field Hearing

At 2 p.m. on Friday, July 14 at Mitchell College in New London, Sen. Blumenthal will convene a fifth emergency field hearing as GOP leaders vow to continue efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip coverage from millions of Americans.  

From Sen. Blumenthal: The GOP decision to delay the vote on their cruel and costly bill was a testament to the millions of Americans who stood up and spoke out—including over a thousand people from Connecticut who packed the first four field hearings in Connecticut. I have shared those stories in Washington at every opportunity. Those messages have been heard around the country and made a difference. 

But the fight is not over. We cannot be complacent. GOP Senate leadership is continuing to negotiate in secret and has promised yet another proposal to decimate the ACA and access to affordable care this week.  

Please come out to show the GOP that we are not giving up until they agree once and for all to preserve and protect our healthcare and stop these cruel efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. 

Parking available in the Montauk Avenue lot.

Please RSVP to courtney_chandler@blumenthal.senate.gov and indicate in your response whether you intend to testify.

4th Blumenthal Emergency Field Hearing

From Senator Blumenthal's Office:

THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER—BLUMENTHAL TO CONVENE FOURTH EMERGENCY FIELD HEARING

TESTIMONY FROM THESE HEARINGS USED TO FIGHT REPUBLICAN REPEAL OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

 

Friends,

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 6th in the West Hartford Town Hall Auditorium, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal will convene a fourth emergency field hearing as GOP leaders vow to continue efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip coverage from millions of Americans.  This hearing will be held in the evening to afford more opportunity for individuals to speak.

The GOP decision to delay the vote on their cruel and costly bill was a testament to the millions of Americans who stood up and spoke out—including hundreds of people from Connecticut who packed the first two field hearings in Connecticut. Senator Blumenthal has been speaking on the Senate floor every day sharing those powerful and deeply impactful stories. Those messages have been heard around the country and made a difference.

But the fight is not over. We cannot be complacent. GOP Senate leadership is continuing to negotiate in secret and plans to ram through a partisan vote after the July 4 recess week.

Please come out to show the GOP that we are not giving up until they agree once and for all to preserve and protect our healthcare and stop these cruel efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

Blumenthal Emergency Field Hearing

5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Thursday, July 6

West Hartford Town Hall Auditorium

50 South Main Street

West Hartford, CT

Please RSVP to Elizabeth_benton@blumenthal.senate.gov and indicate whether you would like to be placed on the list to testify.
