FLASH! Freshman Rep. John #Faso (NY-19, #HudsonValley) is holding a fundraiser in midtown Manhattan this coming Mon. eve July 10. @1199seiu the NYS Nurses Assoc., and other groups involved in Health Care for America Now-NYC Organizing Committee are mobilizing a #protest outside it as donors arrive. All are welcome to join us. The address is 230 W. 56th St. (west of B'way), and the time will be from 6-7 p.m. Bring your tombstones, etc.
FYI -- Faso voted for the House health care bill back in early May. He also is co-author of the notorious "#CollinsFasoAmendment" to both the House and Senate bills that would force New York State to assume all local county share of paying for #Medicaid, which would blow a huge hole in the state's Medicaid budget. HOWEVER, it would exempt NYC from this new arrangement, so that while local taxpayers (read: homeowners) upstate and on Long Is. would benefit, residents of NYC would not, and our local govt. would still bear the costs.
