In his first major move as the newly appointed chair of outreach for Senate Democrats, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has asked us to take an immediate stand: to save health care. He has called for all-of-us, including Members of Congress, to organize and hold rallies in our towns to oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare and dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Called “Our First Stand: Save Health Care,” the resistance rallies are slated for Sunday, Jan. 15.
Hear that? Bernie’s talking about all-of-us, too!
Millions of people who voted for Trump believed him when he said:
Trump must be held to his promises and veto any Republican measures to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
All-of-us must stand together and hold Trump accountable.
