*** WHY WE’RE MARCHING ***
Trumpcare is a savage attack on working people and the poor. If passed, it will deny tens of millions access to healthcare and represent one of the greatest transfers of wealth from the working class to the 1% in U.S. history through massive tax cuts for the super-rich and corporations.
Trumpcare can be defeated. We need a full mobilization of the opposition to Trumpcare through rallies, protests, and occupations of Republican Senators’ offices nationwide. The Republicans are struggling to overcome internal divisions, but we need to keep the pressure up to ensure defeat of Trumpcare. We need to not just fight back against Trump’s attacks on health care, but for universal single-payer healthcare. There is mass opposition across the country, we need all opponents of Trumpcare to unite behind a strategy of mobilizing the full breadth of that opposition, similar to the mass rallies around Trump’s inauguration when millions marched in the streets. With a well-organized mobilization and an escalating series of mass actions we can help ensure the Republican bill fails. Join Portland Socialist Alternative and Socialist Students in the national fight back against Trumpcare.
