Affordable Care Act Day of Action
225 5th Street, Grand Junction, CO
The general plan for the ACA Day of Action is to assemble at Congressman Scott Tipton's Grand Junction office on Wednesday April 23rd and present him with the best statistics we can gather on ACA Signups in Mesa County and in the 3rd Congressional District and have some validators with success stories of how they were helped by gaining coverage through the ACA and ask Tipton why he continues to work against his constituents in voting a ridiculous number of times to overturn the ACA.
