“Our Lives On The Line” Rally

CORCRC co-sponsored Colorado “Our Lives on the Line” Rally

By Senator Betty Boyd, CORCRC President

The event took place on Saturday, July 29th at City Park in Denver.  It was a rally to remind our US Senators and Congressional Representatives that many lives are truly on the line with proposed repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, best known as “Obamacare”.

Many articulate people spoke passionately of the problems with the efforts in Congress. Huge losses of health care, especially for low-income families and kids, for older Americans and for people with disabilities threaten not only their healthcare but their very lives.  As Board President, I attended the event along with 350-400 people.  It turned out to be a celebration as the Senate, just days earlier, had defeated the latest attempt to repeal the law.

Senator Michael Bennet was there to accept the thanks of the crowd.  He thanked the people of Colorado for their persistent advocacy.
