6AM Vigil on Morning of Graham-Cassidy Vote

September 27, 2017 @ 5:30 am - 7:00 am

Senator Cory Gardner knows the majority of his constituents are against ending Medicaid, tax subsidies, and the protections that so many Coloradans with pre-existing conditions rely on for affordable health coverage. Passing the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill would take away billions of health care dollars from Colorado and cause 468,000 more uninsured as a result.

On the last ACA repeal attempt, Senator Cory Gardner voted yes on a bill he knew would have similarly devastating effects for Colorado.

Now apparently Mitch McConnell wants to rush a vote on Graham-Cassidy as early as WEDNESDAY. Join Coloradans whose lives are on the line for a 6:00am vigil outside Senator Cory Gardner’s office on what is expected to be the morning of the vote. We will urge him to to keep Coloradans healthy, not put us in harm, by rejecting repeal.

RAPID RESPONSE NOTE: After RSVPing, this event will send a notification on Tuesday afternoon indicating whether the vote is confirmed for Wednesday, or else the vote has been delayed and we are moving the event to Thursday or Friday morning.
