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.
