AFP VA “Hands Off Our Healthcare” Rally & Press Conference

June 17, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

AFP VA “Hands Off Our Healthcare” Rally & Press Conference

With less than seven months until full implementation, families all across the Commonwealth are looking at their wallets and wondering just how much more health insurance will cost next year. In California, insurance rates could DOUBLE next year. In neighboring Maryland, rates are soaring.


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


…but we need to stand up now and make our voices heard!

Gov. McDonnell has formed a legislative panel made up of several members of the House of Delegates and State Senate to vote on Medicaid expansion in the Commonwealth. The first meeting will be held on Monday, June 17th at the Capital in Richmond. Join AFP to tell our representatives in the State House “NO” to Obamacare and “NO” to Medicaid expansion.




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:
