Reminder: Soup Party January 15

You're invited to our annual soup party on Sunday, January 15, from 5 to 8 pm at our house, 67 Dane Street in Somerville.   RSVP's are welcome but not required.

All you need to bring is yourself, and a friend if you want to.   But if you want to bring snacks, drinks, or dessert, that’s welcome. 

And earlier that day, join a rally to save health care

an invitation from Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Here in Massachusetts, all of us – Democrats, Republicans, and Independents – believe that people should have access to quality, affordable health care. It hasn’t been easy, but we’ve made a real commitment month after month, year after year to fixing and improving our coverage.

And when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, Massachusetts went all in – expanding Medicaid, setting up an insurance exchange, and working to make coverage more affordable. If the Republicans in Washington repeal and run, we here in Massachusetts stand to lose a lot:
  • Pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act stops insurance companies from denying coverage to the 2.9 million people in Massachusetts with preexisting conditions.

  • Lifetime caps. The Affordable Care Act ended lifetime limits on 2.5 million people’s plans.

  • Preventive care. The Affordable Care Act has made preventive services like flu shots and cancer screenings free for almost 3.4 million people in Massachusetts.

  • Discrimination against women. The Affordable Care Act prevents insurance companies from discriminating against women or charging people more depending on their occupation.

  • Coverage for young people. The Affordable Care Act allows students and young people to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26.

  • Prescription drugs. The Affordable Care Act helps the people of Massachusetts on Medicare save, on average, over $1000 on prescription drugs.

  • Small business tax breaks. The Affordable Care Act provides tax breaks for small businesses who provide health care.
