UltraViolet To Fly Plane Over GOP Retreat: “Fox Poll: ACA More Popular Than Trump”

Plane To Fly Thursday At 11am Over GOP Retreat at Loews Hotel In Philly

PHILADELPHIA — On Thursday, January 26th, as Donald Trump meets with Republican congressional leaders at the Loews Hotel debating how to repeal the Affordable Care Act, UltraViolet, a national women’s advocacy organization, will fly a plane banner over the meeting reading:

“Fox Poll: ACA More Popular Than Trump.”

UltraViolet’s plane cites a new poll from Fox News that found that 50 percent of voters feel favorably about the Affordable Care Act.  The same poll found that only 42 percent of American voters feel favorably about President Trump.

WHERE: Loews Philadelphia Hotel, 1200 Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19107

WHEN: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM ET, Thursday, January 26, 2017

“We know that Trump is a narcissist. So we are sending him and the GOP a loud and clear message — Obamacare is more popular than you. We’re sure he’ll love that,” said Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of Ultraviolet.

“Make no mistake – repealing the Affordable Care Act would literally cost thousands of women their lives.  Whether it was the ACA’s guaranteed coverage of screening tests for cervical or breast cancer, comprehensive maternity care, domestic violence counseling or access to birth control and emergency contraception – for millions of American women the real health care benefits provided by this law are not negotiable,” continued Thomas.  “Nearly 30 million Americans rely on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion for insurance – and because of the law, we now have the lowest uninsured rate in US history.  President Trump and Congressional Republicans want to take us back to a time where women paid more for health insurance and millions of Americans died unable to afford care. We will not let that happen.”

UltraViolet members will also join the thousands of people rallying outside the Loews Hotel to protest President Trump and his plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
