Our First Stand: SAVE HEALTH CARE - January 15

Plans are firming up for a January 15 rally in La Crosse, coordinated with similar rallies around the country, to make a stand against Republican plans to make health care less available and less affordable for Americans.

As you may have seen, Senator Bernie Sanders reminded his colleagues and voters, that Donald Trump promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid (skip to 10:50) during the presidential campaign.

And he has joined Democratic Senate and House leaders Schumer and Pelosi in calling for a day of action against such plans. (Read the letter here).

This is what we know so far. Please subscribe and/or check back. As plans finalize, we will update this page!

WHEN:  Sunday, January 15 beginning at 1:30 p.m.
WHERE:  Cameron Park (5th & King), La Crosse, Wisconsin
WHO:  Anyone who wants to save affordable, accessible health care for everyone incuding those with pre-existing conditions, low income people, children, seniors and everyone else.

Dress for the weather (hey - we live in Wisconsin! You know what to wear to stay safe and warm!) Bring your signs (NO CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY! DON'T CUT MEDICARE! #NoMandate!, etc.)
