AFP-VA “Hands Off My Healthcare” Rally (Richmond)

August 19, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The legislative super committee is scheduled to meet again next month and decide whether or not to implement Obamacare and expand Medicaid in Virginia. When they met last month, over 250 Americans for Prosperity activists along with coalition partners shocked the political establishment by packing the meeting – a meeting where nobody was allowed to provide testimony. This time public testimony is encouraged…

We can stop a key part of Obamacare from coming to Virginia…

I don’t know about you, but I am frustrated with many of our politicians who aren’t fighting hard enough to oppose Obamacare implementation and Medicaid expansion. They know that Medicaid is broken. They know that expanding this government program could lead to higher death rates and doctor shortages…


We’re holding a press conference at the Bell Tower to oppose Obamacare and Medicaid expansion at Noon-then we’re going to attend the public hearing at 1pm. Please RSVP for the event today so we can alert the TV and radio stations ahead of time. See below for details:
