Day 2: Sacramento Residents Rally to Protect Healthcare

Healthcare workers rally outside Congressman McClintock's Granite Bay office.

The numbers are growing…

More than 200 caregivers, residents, families and community members rallied for a second day in a row to call on congress to protect essential healthcare funding.

Alarmed by recent talks of slashing Medicare and Medicaid, which is Medi-Cal in California, they gathered outside of U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock’s (R-CA) congressional office in Granite Bay near Sacramento.

By Thanksgiving, a congressional “supercommittee” must develop a plan to reduce the deficit by $1.5 trillion, and decide whether or not to make huge cuts that would eliminate healthcare delivery in our communities, and jobs in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

“The clock is ticking and Congressman McClintock must decide if he will protect the health and safety of seniors and children. Getting more Americans back to work without sacrificing healthcare should be our top priority as a nation.”

“Slashing Medicare and Medi-Cal will put our entire healthcare system at risk. Think of all the seniors who’ve worked their entire lives only to find their healthcare ripped away from them at a time when they need it most.”
