LET’S TELL SENS. CORNYN AND CRUZ NO TO ZOMBIECare!! JOIN US SUNDAY MORNING FOR A PUBLIC SQUARE TOWN HALL!
Zombiecare is back! Once again we are DAYS away from the Senate voting to kick millions of people off their health care. Sens. Cornyn and Cruz are key players in the plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act. This will be disastrous for many thousands of Texas children, young mothers, people with disabilities, and seniors.
This Sunday morning Senators Cornyn and Cruz will be at the Texas Tribune Festival at 9 a.m. This is our best chance to say NO to their ZOMBIECARE with our collective voices, our bodies and our people power.
Sens. Cornyn and Cruz are so reckless in their drive to kill health care that they plan to vote without any analysis by the Congressional Budget Office that shows how many TENS OF MILLIONS will lose coverage.
We're not going to let them vote without hearing the loud voices of Texans!
This is our LAST CHANCE to show the Senate what we're made of - to tell them NO to gutting Medicaid, NO repeal of the ACA, and NO to Trumpcare.
IF EVER THERE WERE A NEED TO SHOW UP IN PERSON, SUNDAY IS IT!
WHAT TO BRING:
Write a personal letter about how the ACA or Medicaid has impacted your life. Include your concerns about Trumpcare, the destruction of Medicaid, removal of protections for pre-existing conditions--anything that this bill attacks. Bring your letter to read out loud or simply hand it in for us to deliver to the senators’ offices. You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to, supporting others is just as important. Bring your friends!!! Bring your children and babies!!!! Get the word out. We need BIG NUMBERS in attendance!! (Also, bring bottled water, sunscreen and bug spray.) Signs are welcome, and any megaphones will be helpful!
“TrumpCare: Back from the dead and coming for you”
“Kill the bill!”
“Zombiecare! DON’T YOU DARE!

Corner of Guadalupe and W. 24th (near Hogg Auditorium, where the program takes place)
Parking info from Texas Tribune Festival's website:
Parking around campus will be challenging, especially since the Texas Tribune Festival is happening. Consider carpooling, and MANY bus routes drop off right on the drag near the intersection.
