Join us in Congressman Hoyer’s District to demand that the 2nd most powerful Democrat in the House support Medicare For All!
Location: Mt. Ennon Baptist Church, 9832 Piscataway Road, Clinton MD 20735.
Time: Saturday, August 17th, 2pm-4pm (doors open at 1:30pm)
Our healthcare system is broken. It is driven by profit and utter greed. While the healthcare industry rakes in billions of dollars every year in earnings, medical debt makes up 70% of all bankruptcies filed. Millions of Americans have no insurance.
Our Revolution is leading the movement for Medicare for All. Medicare for All guarantees healthcare as a human right, and you’ve received many invitations to events. But this one if different. It’s in the district of House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
While the majority of Democrats in the House have co-sponsored Representative Pramila Jayapal’s Medicare for All bill, including Maryland Congressmen Brown, Cummings, Raskin and Sarbanes, Congressman Steny Hoyer is among the minority of Democrats who have not. We have an open invitation to Congressman Hoyer to attend the townhall on Aug. 17th and talk to us.
The town hall is being co-sponsored by the 22 organizations that now comprise the Maryland Progressive Healthcare Coalition and it will be live-streamed nationally. We need a big showing and a lot of help.
We, in Maryland, have this unique opportunity to shine the light on
the House Democratic leadership and we must. If you live in District 5, join us to tell Congressman Hoyer why this matters to you.
If you live in Districts 1 (Harris), 2 (Ruppersberger), or 6 (Trone), where your representative like Hoyer does not support Medicare for All, stand in solidarity with Marylanders demanding that Congress address the healthcare crisis.
If you live in Districts 3, 4, 7, or 8,
where your representative has co-sponsored H.R. 1384, come and express your outrage that the Democratic leadership is not in sync with the majority of Democrats!
Let’s get the message out loud and clear on the 17th.
The Affordable Care Act helped a lot of people by requiring insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ plans. But it hasn’t stopped soaring costs that are
forcing increasing numbers of people to deny themselves basic care. Profit-based healthcare has got to end.
