We have joined forces with Our Revolution to co-host a rally in defense of the Affordable Care Act. Congress will be in recess this week, and many members of Congress will be back in their home states and districts.
We are inviting Senators Burr (R-NC) and Tillis (R-NC) and Congressmen Meadows (11th District) and McHenry (10th District) to attend, and explain to their constituents why they approve of repealing the Affordable Care Act without an adequate replacement plan, and why they want to take away affordable health care from millions of Americans while giving tax breaks to billionaires.
Congressmen McHenry and Meadows have both already denied the request for a town hall during recess, while Burr and Tillis continue to completely ignore us. Despite petitions circulating with thousands of signatures, community town hall events such as Health Care Town Hall occurring in the community that demonstrate how many people are affecting by ACA, and other public demand, they continue to refuse to do their democratic duty: listen to their constituents!
***Numbers matter! Come to the rally so we can amplify our collective voice so that they cannot hide beneath the silence!***
Most precincts in Buncombe hold their elections the same day. Head to your precinct meeting in the morning, and then join us downtown in the afternoon to demand that our Congressional representatives listen to the will of their constituents.

When: February 25th from 3- 5pm
Where: tentatively planned for Vance Monument. Stay tuned for further details.
