At a time when the United States remains the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all as a right, the Republicans want to throw nearly 30 million people off of health insurance, make massive cuts to Medicaid and defund Planned Parenthood. At the same time, in the midst of a grotesque and growing level of income and wealth inequality, they want obscene tax breaks for the top one-tenth of 1 percent.
On Sunday, January 15, Democratic members of Congress, trade unions, senior groups, health care activists and all those who believe in economic and social justice are organizing a day of action to tell Republicans loudly and clearly: You are not going to get away with it.
Four Connecticut Democratic politicians are planning “A Rally In Support of the Affordable Care Act’’ this coming Sunday at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol in Hartford. U.S. Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, D-3, and Elizabeth Esty, D-5, are organizers of the event. (New Canaan Patch)
