ADVISORY: Health care advocates to call on Congressman Vern Buchanan to protect the health of his constituents

SARASOTA – Health care advocates and concerned constituents will hold an action at Congressman Vern Buchanan’s Sarasota office tomorrow calling on Buchanan to protect the health of his constituents.

The action was organized following a string of attacks on health care from Congress and the Trump administration. Planned Parenthood is taking the Trump-Pence administration to court to fight for the more than four million people who depend on Title X, the nation’s program for affordable birth control and reproductive health care.

Advocates will also highlight Congressman Buchanan’s vote on HR 1628 (The American Health Care Act) that would have repealed the Affordable Care Act. Had it passed, more than two million Floridians would have lost coverage by 2026, including 64,000 in Buchanan’s own congressional district.

WHO: Representatives from Planned Parenthood,  Floridians for a Fair Shake, and other concerned citizens.

WHAT: Action calling on Congressman Vern Buchanan to protect the health of his constituents and stop supporting efforts by the Trump administration and Congress to sabotage women’s health and the Affordable Care Act.

WHEN: Thursday May 24, Noon to 1:00PM

WHERE: Vern Buchanan’s Sarasota District Office, 111 South Orange Avenue, Floor 2R, Suite 202W, Sarasota, FL 34236
