United Health Care Workers rallied residents of Steuben County to voice their concern against the repeal of Obamacare.
Frustrated citizens gathered at the First United Methodist Church, in Corning, to hear what’s at stake if Obamacare is completely repealed without a replacement plan.
The United Health Care Workers indicate that over 10,000 people are at risk of losing health care coverage in Steuben County alone. Members of the ‘Citizen Action of New York Organization’ encouraged attendees to reach out to Congressman Tom Reed and plead the importance of fixing the current health care system rather than repealing it.
“76,000 plus people in Congressman Reed’s district have the potential to lose health care coverage because of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act,” Regional Director of Citizen Action of New York, Mary Clark said.
According to Governor Cuomo, over 2.7 million New Yorkers would lose coverage and counties across New York would lose over $595 million in direct spending.
