Americans for Prosperity will be hosting a Hands Off My Health Care rally for free-market grassroots activists from across the country at Upper Senate Park on March 27th in Washington, DC. Register TODAY at handsoffmyhealthcare.com.
Between health issues and affording to go, I guess I will be at home praying for all of you who can go. God Bless you and God Bless your efforts! Love you guys and would be there if I could!!!!
Katie, I can't be there, but I will be with them in spirit and will be praying for them!
So far today all I have seen on the news channel are people with PRO Healthcare signs. Have not seen any signs in support of repealing the law. Just did a quick glance of today's Court transcript and it looks like the repeal folks lost the 1st round....Surprise, Surprise. Just like Obama's eligibility I'm afraid we are going to be stuck with this stupid law.
email I received:
...The big health care bill that President Obama signed has a ton of benefits in it that impact women specifically. And studies show that the more people know about what's in the bill, the more likely they are to support it and use these great new benefits.
Friday was the two-year anniversary of that bill being signed into law, and today the Supreme Court is going to hear arguments from right-wing opponents who are seeking to overturn it. So right now--when health care is in the news and lots of people will be talking about it--is a great time to share what's in it that's great for women with your friends and colleagues.
Take a second to check out the top five benefits for women in the health care law and then share this list on Facebook and Twitter--or just forward this email to your friends.
1. Being a woman is no longer a "pre-existing condition." Yes, women were denied coverage for just being women before the Affordable Care Act was law. Insurance companies would classify pregnancy, c-sections or even being a domestic violence or rape survivor as pre-existing conditions1 and deny coverage on that basis. Women will no longer be denied care2 for pre-existing conditions.
2. Insurance companies can't charge you more for being a woman either. Before the Affordable Care Act was law, women were sometimes charged up to 150% more than men of the same age. The health care law makes gender discrimination illegal.3
3. Having a pap smear still sucks, but at least you don't have to shell out a co-pay for it. Breast cancer screenings, cervical cancer screenings, domestic violence counseling and screenings and a whole bunch of other preventive care measures must be covered by insurance companies.4
4. You also don't need a co-pay for birth control anymore.5 And when 1 in 3 women in our country can't afford it, that's a big deal.
5. Have kids? Or want to? The law helps with that too. If you have kids, they can stay on your health insurance until they're 26 years old--regardless of whether they live with you or are married or not.6 And if you want to have kids, the law will help you get pre-natal care and counseling. Thinking about breast-feeding? Now you can get coaching and supplies for that covered by insurance too.7
Please help spread the word about these great benefits today.

Just wanted to show you guys what the left is saying about ObamaCare and the tactics they are using. I get emails from many leftist organizations so I know what they are propagandizing.
Pray the SCOTUS Invalidates DictatorCare!
