A Call-Out from the Liberty Union Progressives of Buffalo/Western New York
Posted January 12th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
As you may know, Republicans in Congress have made dismantling our healthcare system a top priority for 2017.
They’ve promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) on day one. They’ve been chomping at the bit to privatize Medicare for years. And now that they have control of the House, the Senate, and the presidency, their dream of a profits-over-people healthcare system for all has never been closer to reality.
The danger is real. They’re going to do this. It’s up to us, the people, to stop them.
On Sunday January 15, at 4 p.m. we are hosting an
“Our First Stand: Save Health Care” rally
outside of the Buffalo VA Hospital
3495 Bailey Avenue in Buffalo, 14215.
This rally will coincide with other pro-healthcare rallies across the country. Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Charles Schumer called for these rallies to show the Republicans that the American people “vigorously oppose the Republican plan to end Medicare as we know it and throw our health care system into chaos.”
At our rally, speakers will explain why it’s vital to protect Obamacare and Medicare from this Republican assault. We will also present ways to move forward with even better healthcare solutions. Specifically, we’ll discuss the New York Health Act, which would establish universal single-payer healthcare in New York State, and HB 676, which would establish a Medicare for All program for the entire United States.
And most importantly, we will stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters across the nation and show Republicans who want to tear down progressive reforms that we will fight them every step of the way. Millions of lives are at stake.
You can help save them. Join the rally. Join the fight.
The Liberty Union Progressives is a political club with intentions of keeping Bernie Sanders’s political revolution alive in Western NY!
