This week, Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado and his right-wing allies in the U.S. Senate began the process of repealing the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. Gardner doesn’t have a plan to replace Obamacare, and over 20 million Americans who depend on the health coverage they’ve obtained through the law could lose access.
Join us on Tuesday, January 10th at 12pm as we rally against Congress’ hasty repeal effort outside Sen. Cory Gardner’s Denver and Greeley offices. We will be delivering signatures from this petition to Gardner’s office, which urges Colorado’s congressional leaders not to gamble with our health care and throw the health system into turmoil. If you haven’t signed it, please do so now!

For years, Cory Gardner has promised to repeal Obamacare on the campaign trail without explaining what that really means. Here in Colorado, over a hundred thousand people could lose their private health coverage if the Affordable Care Act is repealed, with thousands more poor and sick Coloradans losing Medicaid coverage.
If Gardner succeeds in repealing Obamacare, he’s going to hurt real people. If the tax credits that make health coverage affordable and the Medicaid expansion are repealed, Americans will lose health coverage and not get it back. Millions of Americans and thousands of Coloradans will suffer. It is not an exaggeration: real people will lose their lives.
The Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect, but extending health coverage to millions more Americans has been a huge success. We can’t let short-sighted politics erase the historic gains we’ve made. We have to stand up and fight for every American who has gained coverage and otherwise benefited from Obamacare–and make Cory Gardner understand that he will pay a terrible price for hurting the very citizens he swore to protect.
Thanks very much for your timely support. See you Tuesday.
