MASSIVE #Fight4Health LOS ANGELES RALLY DEFENDS HEALTH CARE FOR
MILLIONS OF CALIFORNIANS WHO ARE TARGETS OF TRUMP AND GOP CONGRESS
Los Angeles - Hundreds of Los Angeles-area health care workers, nurses, advocates, patients, and seniors were joined Tuesday by Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez to launch a massive effort to protect Californians' access to affordable health care. Their action came as the Trump Administration and Republican-led Congress are launching an all-out assault on health security for millions of Americans, with plans to gut the Medicare guarantee for seniors and decimate the Affordable Care Act and Medi-Cal. Health advocates promised to fight attacks on health care that that would force millions of Californians back into the ranks of the uninsured.
