Sens. Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer along with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi have called for a national day of action, with rallies being organized across the country, including in Philadelphia. The goal is to stop GOP efforts aimed at destroying the Affordable Care Act and taking health insurance away from 30 million Americans, privatizing Medicare and making massive cuts in Medicaid.
The Philadelphia rally is being organized by Reps. Dwight Evans and Bob Brady, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses & Allied Professionals, and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). RSVP here to attend. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
