At rallies and demonstrations at the court and elsewhere around the country, working families will mark health care reform’s second anniversary. The Health Care for America Now (HCAN) coalition is sponsoring three days of vigils and demonstrations outside the Supreme Court next week. Click here to find out more.
The Alliance for Retired Americans will hold more than two dozen community events around the country to spotlight new Medicare benefits and to educate seniors on where elected officials and candidates stand on health care reform.
Alliance President Barbara J. Easterling warns that health care reform opponents are mounting huge campaigns to spread misinformation about the Affordable Care Act.
This shameless campaign has been bankrolled by the big health insurance companies and other corporations who, for too long, made outrageous profits by charging us more and giving us less. One percent of this country got wealthier whenever the other 99 percent of us got sick, so of course these companies have always opposed health reform.
