#SaveOurCare #MedicaidNotMillionaires New York State Events This Week!

While our calls, emails and rallies were effective in delaying the vote-we still must work to defeat it once and for all.  All eyes are still on the U.S. Senate bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and leave 22 million people without health care, all to give huge tax breaks to the wealthy and drug and insurance corporations.
