URGENT: Rally Next Tuesday To Stop Repeal of Colorado's Insurance Marketplace

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ProgressNow Colorado

We urgently need your help next Tuesday at the Colorado State Capitol.

Far-right Republicans in the Colorado Senate, following the lead of Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress in Washington, have introduced legislation to repeal Colorado’s hugely successful health coverage marketplace. It hasn’t been a perfect system, of course, but the rate of uninsured in our state has plummeted to historic lows. Across the state, medical providers are expanding their facilities and service offerings due to a brighter financial outlook and burgeoning demand.

Repealing the insurance marketplace would have devastating consequences for hundreds of thousands of Coloradans who have gained coverage since the system went live several years ago.

We don’t know what’s going to happen in Washington under President Trump, but one thing we do know is that lives of Coloradans have been saved by coverage they’ve obtained through Connect For Health Colorado.

Colorado won’t give up the gains we’ve made in health coverage. Join us next Tuesday at 1PM on the West Steps of the Colorado Capitol Building as we rally to STOP Senate Bill 3.

WHAT: Rally to stop the repeal of Colorado’s insurance marketplace
WHEN: Tuesday, January 31st at 1:00PM
WHERE: Colorado State Capitol, 200 E. Colfax, Denver

Click here to RSVP via Facebook.

After the rally, we encourage everyone to stay for the Senate hearing on Senate Bill 3 and make your voices heard. If you are one of the thousands of Coloradans who would be uninsured right now without coverage obtained through Connect For Health Colorado, we want to hear your story. Drop us a line at resist@progressnowcolorado.org and tell us about yourself. In addition to next Tuesday’s hearing, we’re working on a variety of media projects to help tell your story to a broader audience.

Thanks as always for taking action on short notice. This is just one of the many hard battles we face in the coming months, but it’s critical that we stand together now to protect the historic gains in coverage Colorado has achieved under the Affordable Care Act. We can’t go back to the way it was before. Too many of our neighbors, friends, and family are counting on us.
