The Michigan legislature is getting ready to pass a bill which will cut many people from Medicaid. These well-fed legislators – who show up to work in the state legislature only 94 days out of a whole year and who get top-shelf medical coverage from the state for themselves and their families – want to require all “able-bodied” adults to work 29 hours every week in order to qualify for Medicaid.
On May 20 at 2 pm, Juan Rey, who is running in California’s June 5th election primary for Congress in the Northeast San Fernando Valley, will be speaking in North Hollywood about the multiple crises that working people face, and the need for workers to organize and unite into an independent working class party. A discussion will follow.
On the afternoon of Sunday, April 22, about two dozen supporters of Juan Rey’s campaign for Congress attended a fund raiser at a supporter’s home in Los Angeles.
Juan Rey is running as an independent for U.S. Congress (California 29th District) in the June 5th primary election in the San Fernando Valley.
