EMERGENCY Healthcare Rally TONIGHT 6-8PM in Brea
May 3 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
BREA – At 6pm tonight, Indivisible CA39 will hold a rally in front of Congressman Ed Royce’s Brea office urging him to vote against the newest House effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Royce made no public statement on the bill until yesterday, when he told reporters he was “undecided” and had “serious concerns.” Attendees will bring signs and chant to make their wishes known.
According to congressional whip counts, this bill has more support than the recently defeated American Health Care Act did, which also sought to repeal the ACA. Increased support is attributed to concessions made to the hyper-conservative Freedom Caucus, which blocked the prior effort; as of now, the bill does not appear to guarantee protection for individuals with pre-existing conditions. Republicans are nearing the vote threshold they need to pass the bill in the House, and a vote is considered imminent.
