Congressional Recess – Join Town Halls near you

Congressional Recess – Join Town Halls near you

Another Congressional Recess is upon us – meaning our Members of Congress are back home to hear from us – their constituents.

Here are the public town halls we currently know of – RSVP with us to let us know you’ll be there supporting access to health care.

US Senator Claire McCaskill has announced that she will have 8 town halls across Missouri. We will update this page as we have more information.

Wednesday, April 12th

Thursday, April 13th

Friday, April 14th

Will you be attending?  Let us know! Email our Deputy Director, Crystal Brigman Mahaney, to share what questions you would like your US Representatives and Senators to answer.

Looking for ideas on questions to ask our Members of Congress? Here are our concerns and sample questions:

  • Will you pledge to never vote for legislation that guts Medicaid by shifting costs to the states – through a block grant, per-capita cap, and rationing the care of seniors, kids, and people with disabilities?
  • Will you pledge to vote against any bill that results in people losing their health coverage or facing higher out-of-pocket costs?
  • Will you pledge to never vote for legislation that removes the guarantee that insurance companies everywhere cover basic services such as prescription drugs, maternity care, mental health and substance abuse treatment?
  • Will you pledge to never vote for legislation that creates an age tax that makes health care more expensive for people between the ages of 55-64?

Don’t see a town hall for your Members of Congress?  Contact them! Ask them when they are holding public events to hear from their constituents – or why they are not hosting any public listening sessions for constituents like you.
