Markey to Hold Event Monday

U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.) had scheduled an event on Monday to bring attention to how the Graham-Cassidy plan will be detrimental to Massachusetts. “This legislation is an all-out assault on the healthcare law, Medicaid, Planned Parenthood, our hospitals and access to critical opioid treatment services,” Markey’s office wrote in a memo announcing the 10 a.m. meeting at the JFK Federal Building in Boston. “It contains all the same cruel policies rejected several times before by the American people.”
