State of The State :: Making Our Voices Heard!

State of The StateWhat is the State of  Our State? By tradition the Governor of Nevada presents his budget to the people of Nevada at the State of the State address. On January 24th, Gov. Brian Sandoval will outline his budget priorities to the people of the state of  Nevada. He has already signaled that he will continue the failed policies of his predecessor by slashing funding for schools, colleges, environmental protection and human services.

We need to show the Governor and the Legislature that we are committed to investment in our families, our communities and our state! Attend the State of the State address in  Carson City, or at the Grant Sawyer Building in Las Vegas, to show your support for economic policies that work.

When: 5PM JANUARY 24th

Where: Assembly Chamber of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City;  Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas.

Who: You! And everyone who cares about the future of Nevada.

What: Show your support for investment in our schools, families and communities!

Join PLAN to support Health Reform!

As you know, the insurance companies spent over $700 million to try and kill health care. Now, the insurers and their allies are spending millions on ads filled with lies to try and buy a Republican anti-health care majority hell-bent on repealing the new law. These ads are designed to trick and scare voters especially seniors.

Just last week, the conservative 60 Plus Association (an astro turf, insurance industry front-group claiming to represent seniors) launched its latest round of misleading ads that falsely attack the Members of Congress who stood on our side against the insurance companies.

Fight back now and call voters across the country and tell them the truth about the health care law.

These next few weeks are crucial in the fight to protect consumer and end the insurance companies’ stranglehold on our health care. It was your work, your one-on-one conversations, your phone calls, and your e-mails that defeated the insurance lobbyists. We beat the insurance industry before and we will do it again.

Click here to sign up and call seniors across the country and tell them the truth about the health care law.

The insurance companies and their mouthpieces will continue to take every opportunity to prevent the new law from fulfilling its promise. Their tactics are getting more brazen by the day. Several insurance companies are refusing to issue child-only policies because the new law prohibits their practice of denying coverage to children with “pre-existing conditions.” They continue to blame these indefensible actions on the new law.

Will you fight the insurance industry as they attack health care and its supporters? Sign up to phonebank today.

We will continue to stand up to the insurance industry and be the voice of truth in their sea of lies. This movement was built on your hard work and dedication. We won’t let this country go backwards.
