Congratulations on Health Care Reform!

Congratulations on Health Care Reform Passing!

Thank you for your hard work! IWJ- NE is proud to have been part of the passing of health care reform for America. Our organizing and advocacy from the faith perspective helped turn the tide to get all sixty votes for the Senate Bill that was passed by the house on Sunday evening and signed into law by President Obama. Although it is not as comprehensive on affordability as we would like, it still makes historic progress in fixing our health care system to serve the people instead of insurance companies profit margins. The bill will provide coverage to 32 million uninsured, eliminate exclusion for pre-existing conditions, reducing drug costs for Seniors, and allow young people until the age of twenty six to stay on their parent’s plan.

IWJ-NE recently coordinated with Nebraska Appleseed on an action in Lincoln with our mask project that Rev. Debra McKnight help put together. Channel 7 Picked up the action
