July 2017 Monthly Meeting – Notes

Healthcare Highlight: Elizabeth Crocker delivered an important presentation on the current state of the healthcare battle.

Key elements:

  • The ACA is an imperfect bill that needs to be FIXED, NOT sabotaged
  • State of Play: Collins and Paul are opposing the bill for different reasons
  • Only 462 days to go until 2018 MIDTERMS
  • With your calls/open letters: push for REVISION, NOT REPEAL that causes market destabilization
  • Get the latest updates on ALL Healthcare Reform issues from:

Going Back and Connecting With Grassroots Activism with Carol Moore
