Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will hold a "Town Talk" at Totem Middle School on Saturday, Feb. 11, to hear directly from his constituents about their questions and concerns on the future of the Affordable Care Act and any other issues important to them.

The Feb. 11 event is a continuation of Larsen's Affordable Care Act Tour of Washington's 2nd Congressional District – a series of events in towns and cities across Northwest Washingtonian aimed a highlighting how Congressional Republicans' efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act with no plan to replace it will negatively affect Washingtonians.

Last month, Larsen launched a new online platform for Washingtonians to share their stories about how they or someone they know has benefited from the Affordable Care Act. More than 500 constituents have already shared their stories. Larsen is using these stories to help beat back Republican efforts to take away health care from Washingtonians, which includes 537,000 people who gained coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act, over 2,969,000 people with a pre-existing condition, and millions more whose critical benefits and health costs are at risk.

After hearing from more than 15,000 constituents, Larsen voted in support of the Affordable Care Act in 2009 – citing its improvements to Medicare benefits for seniors, bans on discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, and potential to expand health care coverage for those who need it most.
