Indivisible KC Week of July 17 - Kansas Menu
Hello fellow Kansans,
Tuesday, July 18, is a big day for our state. It’s the day the justices of the Kansas Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on whether the new school funding law, signed in June, is constitutional. A decision will come soon after. If it’s ruled unconstitutional, the legislators will gather again in Topeka during the summer to hammer out a new bill.
The latest version of the Senate health care bill, released to the public Thursday, seems to be similar to the bill the House passed, except this bill now contains the Cruz Amendment. The main takeaway from this amendment is that insurers can offer the most basic policies, meaning they don’t have to cover Essential Health Benefits. Before ObamaCare, these types of policies were called junk policies. This provision is so bad that members of Congress have exempted themselves from it. The irony.
Tuesday, July 18
At 10:30 AM, we will rally at Senator Moran's office to tell him to vote NO on the Motion to proceed. If he does, we have a chance to defeat this bill. Click HERE for details.
At Noon, we will rally at Senator Roberts' office to tell him he's voting YES on a bill that's bad for Kansans. Click HERE for details.
