Pittsfield Healthcare Rally


The Lyme Alliance is happy to be a co-sponsor of a rally in support of equal access to healthcare and against the repeal/decimation of currently installed insurance programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. We also feel that to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act, rather than reform it is a waste of time. Not to mention there are many other issues plaguing healthcare, that the singular focus on repealing is ridiculous. Healthcare is also being abused as an issue of partisan politics, where it does not belong!

1 to 2 PM
Park Square Historic District
2 E St, Pittsfield, MA

It doesn't matter what side of the aisle your are on, healthcare is a right, not a privilege! The decimation of the already unsteady and tumultuous American healthcare system is not what we need right now!

What about:

Regulations on the prices of medical care and prescriptions?

The influence of insurance companies on medical decisions?

Returning the power of choice to the patient and doctor?

The USA's conversion to a symptom management for profit system versus proper treatment for disease resolution?

Examining the preferential treatment of the Infectious Diseases Society of America's Lyme guidelines by the medical establishment, despite supposed freedom of choice?

Examining the toxic relationships between some non-profit organizations and taxpayer funded government agencies, such as the Infectious Diseases of America and the CDC?

Why are these issues being ignored?
