Host: Metro New York Health Care For All
Rep. John Faso (NY-19, Hudson Valley) is holding a fundraiser this evening in midtown Manhattan. Metro New York Health Care for All is partnering with 1199 SEIU, NYS Nurses Assoc., Citizen Action of NY, and various “resistance” groups to hold a quick-and-dirty protest outside. We’re calling it “Fun with Faso’s Fat Cats” —please join us for it on your way home from work!
Rep. Faso refuses to meet with his constituents back home about health care, yet he can make time to come to New York City to meet with his Fat Cat donors. In early May, he voted for the American Health Care Act that would give huge tax cuts to the super-rich and to large health care corporations like insurance and drug companies. It would also end health coverage for 2.7 million New Yorkers, gut the Affordable Care Act, decimate Medicaid, and single out New York State with a special $2.3 billion cut in federal Medicaid funding.
