Tuesdays with[out] Tillis
May 14 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDTFree
Tuesday our topic is Senator Tillis: Protect Our Health Care.
Senator TIllis has introduced a bill designed to make us think he cares about pre-existing conditions, but it does not offer the same protections as the ACA by a long shot. Meanwhile the Justice Department is now trying to repeal the ACA. The House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday (236-183) which really does protect people but the president has already promised to veto it. And of course our big issue in NC is Medicaid expansion. We are honored to welcome two great speakers, Charles Van Der Horst MD, an incredibly distinguished physician and activist, and Stacy Staggs, the mother of a medically complex child. Her familiy relies on Medicaid for care and is coming all the way from Charlotte to speak. Stacy is the founder of the North Carolina Chapter of Little Lobbyists.
