DC Forum: The War on Health Care
July 15, 2017 at 4:00pm - 6pm
After a temporary defeat, the Trump regime has resumed their attempt to overturn the Affordable Care Act and hand a huge tax break to the super rich. The bill, known as “Trumpcare,” if passed would mean the end of Medicare and Medicaid as we know it, and deprive up to 23 million people of their health insurance in the next several years.
Why can’t the wealthiest country on the planet provide health care for all when other countries with less resources have universal health care programs? Is a single-payer system possible?
Join us for presentations and discussion on the Trumpcare bill, how health care differs under capitalism vs. socialism, and how we can build a movement for universal health care.
