Costello ACA Vigil

YOU’RE INVITED!    MoveOn.org
Congressional Stakeout to Save Health Care
Where: Rep. Costello’s West Chester office
When: 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and Friday, join us for an hour (or more!)
What: All-day vigils to stop Trumpcare

Under Trumpcare, 24 million Americans would lose health care. The bill is so awful that the uninsured rate would be worse than it was before the Affordable Care Act. But Republican unity on the bill is crumbling. And if just three Republican senators or 22 House members vote against the repeal bill, then there won’t be enough votes for it to pass. As of last night, more than 50 Republican lawmakers had expressed serious concerns about it.

But the bill is moving extremely fast. That’s why we’re hosting Stakeouts to Save Health Care at key congressional offices tomorrow and Friday, March 16 and 17, from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. We’ll share health care stories, have signs, and raise our voices together to stop this cruel and destructive bill. Will you sign up for one or more shifts during the vigil in West Chester?
A person holding a sign! YES, I’LL BE THERE! People holding signs!
I can’t make it, but show me other events near me.

Costello remains Uncertain

Congressman Ryan Costello will not be pinned down to “a certain forum at a certain time”.  Instead the congressman has evaded “political stunts” by popping up in virtual Town Halls – via telephone and Facebook where participants and questions are pre-registered.

The Concerned Citizens Action Group for PA 6th has scheduled a traditional face-to-face Town Hall for tomorrow, Saturday, 25Feb17, 1-3 PM, at Phoenixville High School.  Mr Costello has said “I already have commitments”.  His planned whereabouts were not reported.

Mr. Costello’s supporters have taken several steps to protect him.  They have insisted that PASD collect fees for use of the High School.  They have registered a complaint with Federal Election Commission.   A spokesman suggested Right To Know requests for “emails and cell phones”.  They have even called out as “unseemly” that a PASD school board member did not disclose his wife’s activities.  Nevertheless She Persisted.

Concerned Citizens has requested that questions be collected prior to Town Hall.  My Question:  Mr Costello claimed to me that only 250,000 have pre-existing conditions covered by ACA plans!  Per USNews an World Report, 1/4 of Americans have pre-existing conditions.  Mr Costello, what is your source for such an absurdly low estimate?

The weather forecast for the Town Hall is heavy rain, outside.  Inside the forecast is uncertain.
