Join us on the west steps of the Nebraska State Capitol today at 5:30 for a public rally to show state senators you believe LB 577 deserves a vote!
A small group of state senators is blocking a vote on a bill in the Legislature that would adopt the Affordable Care Act’s new Medicaid program (LB 577). This bill will help our working families get access to health care and boost our state’s economy. Today is your chance to tell them we don’t want the politics of obstruction here in our state.
Stand with 54,000 uninsured Nebraskans. They deserve a vote.
Stand with our rural hospitals. They deserve a vote.
Stand with working families. They deserve a vote.
Stand with the 500 lives the Medicaid expansion will save each year. They deserve a vote.
What: “LB 577 Deserves a Vote” public rally
Where: Nebraska State Capitol, 14th and K Street
When: Wednesday, May 15, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
LB 577 would help 54,000 uninsured, working Nebraskans get access to health care. It would provide security to our rural hospitals, our working families, and our veterans. It is beneficial to our economy, returning $2.3 billion to our state. And it would save an estimated 500 lives every year.
We encourage you to make a sign showing who you’re standing with that could be helped by LB 577 and bring it to the rally.
See you at the Capitol at 5:30!
