Hundreds of concerned community members, along with state lawmakers and disability rights activists, rallied in front of U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s (R-CO) Denver office today to protest the GOP bill to replace Obamacare.
Is Gardner trying to shirk responsibility for calling the police on protesters with disabilities at his office?
Last Thursday, after a health care sit-in that lasted nearly sixty hours, nine disability rights activists with the Denver-born organization ADAPT, many of whom are in wheelchairs, were arrested at the office of U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO).
A “Save Medicaid” rally sponsored by the disability rights group ADAPT is slated for 11 a.m. tomorrow in front of the office of U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) at Denver’s Skyline Park.
Activist groups speak out following arrests of people with disabilities protesting at Gardner’s office
Following Thursday’s arrest of ten disability rights activists who were protesting the GOP health care bill at the office of U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), leading Colorado activist groups spoke out in condemnation of Gardner’s refusal to engage with constituents and his party’s plan to strip health insurance from millions of Americans.
Disability advocates camped in the office of Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) say they will stay at the office until Gardner commits to vote against the U.S. Senate’s Obamacare replacement legislation, which would slash Medicaid, a health care program utilized by many disabled people across the United States.
