The White House, Supreme Court, and You

History is being made this week.
 
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act two years ago, the United States joined the rest of the world’s advanced economies by committing to try to ensure quality, affordable health care for all. In a few days, the Supreme Court will begin its process of deciding whether or not this bold commitment will be reversed before it is even fully implemented.
                                                                  
The Supreme Court will hear arguments for three days, beginning Monday, March 26. A small number of lucky individuals will get to see history being made. If you aren’t one of them, you might want to take advantage of an exciting opportunity.
 
I hope you will join us at 4:00 PM EDT on March 28 for a call about this critical Supreme Court case with White House representatives Nancy-Ann DeParle, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff,and Jon Carson, Director, Office of Public Engagement.
 
The White House will take questions about the oral arguments that will have just concluded for this landmark court case. Please submit your questions by emailing RSVP.NCF@Nathancummings.org. The call-in number is 866 576 7975 and the access code is 115260. Share this with others you think will appreciate the opportunity.

I hope you will join us on Wednesday.

PS: Earlier this week, I wrote about some of the amazing work NCF grantees are doing this week to bring public attention to the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. One of those groups, the National Women’s Law Center, published a report on the problem of “gender rating” that was featured in this New York Times article.  Another group, the National Physicians Alliance, went on Martha Stewart to talk about the law.
