On Friday, a group of citizens met with Rep. Ron Kind's La Crosse aide, urging Kind's co-sponsorship of the Green New Deal, a strong first step to systematically address carbon emissions, crumbling and outdated infrastructure, environmental justice, energy deficits, quality meaningful employment, and past and current injustice and inequity in our most fundamental systems.
We learned that Ron Kind will be at a La Crosse listening session
We also need to keep up the pressure to pass Medicare for All legislation. It's supported by a majority of Americans (even Republicans). The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) may have been a necessary (compromised) first step, but clearly Republican attacks, rollback of support, and lack of enforcement show it's not good enough.
Medical bankruptcy is still common, most Americans are one medical emergency away from financial ruin, the divide is growing between those who can and those who can't afford the increasing co-pays, deductibles, out of pockets, and other personal expenses, and rural systems are crumbling. And our broken system is twice as expensive as those of our peers.
Attend a barnstorm (2/12 in La Crosse) to learn hiw you can help and/or contact Ron Kind.
