Democratic Club Meeting

August 8, 2015

Doors open at 9:15 a.m. and the program begins at 9:45.

Wear your name badge for quick entry. Come prepared to have your spirits lifted at this presentation by our in-house ACA specialist, Joseph Flynn.  Joe will describe the successes of the ACA, its four key elements (coverage, exchanges, costs, and financing), the Supreme Court’s rulings on the law’s legitimacy, the ongoing unsuccessful republican effort to “repeal every last word of it,” and the population’s growing appreciation and understanding of the law’s benefits. Some ongoing disparaging myths will also be addressed.

Also, we will be collecting food and cash donations for St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry.  They need cereal, white rice, pastas, mac&cheese, canned meats, canned fruits and soups.
