Palatine, IL – On Tuesday, January 20th, Northwest Suburbs Organizing for Action (NWSOFA) gathered at Durty Nellie’s to watch President Obama deliver the State of the Union Address.The big crowd was inspired by all the good news on the State of the Union.
“Our economy has come a long way since the Great Recession. We’ve added more than 10 million private-sector jobs over the longest run of uninterrupted job growth in history. Unemployment has fallen from 10% to under 6% in the last six years, and the deficit has been cut in half. That’s undeniable progress.” And as the President said, “That’s good news.”
The success of Obamacare has been tremendous for millions of Americans who now have affordable health care for their families.This is so crucial for the health, both physically and economically, for all our citizens. Chris Ross, from Enroll America, reminded everyone that enrollment to be covered in 2015 ends on Feb. 15th.
NWSOFA Climate Change Lead, Joe Salvato, distributed a “Spot the Denier” Bingo game to play during the speech. Unfortunately, many members of Congress still deny the impact we are having on the health of our world. The Climate Change Team will be continuing to educate and take action on this in 2015.
