CA Day of Action: Protect, Improve & Expand Medicare & Medicaid!

Friday, January 27, 2017 1 PM - 4 PM


Friday, January 27th, 2017
1pm meet at Yokuts Park, 4200 Empire Dr. Bakersfield 93309
2pm Rally and demonstration at Congressman McCarthy’s Office
4100 Empire Dr. Suite 150, Bakersfield 93309

Congressman McCarthy is the House Majority Leader, and is responsible for moving the Republican agenda forward in the House of Representatives. He is a well-known supporter of privatization and reducing spending on programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. We need to show up by the thousands on January 27th to let him know that we expect him to represent his constituents (50% of the residents in Kern County depend on Medicaid, Medicare or both for their health care). We also will demand that he move the House Majority toward protecting, improving and expanding these programs.

Join Campaign for a Healthy California, California Alliance for Retired Americans, California Labor Federation, California Nurses Association, Courage Campaign to take action with patients, nurses and community members for healthcare justice. Buses are leaving from various locations around California. Call CARA toll free at 877-223-6107 to reserve a space (tell us what location you want to leave from). Some of the locations so far are:

Los Angeles County – (Long Beach and Los Angeles)
Monterrey/Central Coast
Santa Clara/San Benito counties
Bay Area
