Francis Edwards, candidate for the 99th District House of Delegates seat, is now on Facebook:
Congressman Rob Wittman (R, VA-01) has said he does not support the “health care” bill being put forward by House Speaker Paul Ryan. The House will vote on this bill sometime Thursday, March 23.
We need to call Rep. Wittman’s office and urge him to continue his opposition to this bill. While Republicans are hell-bent on “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, the proposed Trumpcare is a disaster in many ways.
Call Rep. Wittman’s office immediately and urge him to NOT support the “American Health Care Act,” HR 1628.
