Tell Your Governor to Help Save Medicaid

Friend,

Medicaid is in grave danger. If the Senate bill passes, the Congressional Budget Office says that it will cut one of every three dollars currently spent. This will leave states with fewer resources to help those in need.

Several senators from both parties have expressed concerns about these cuts, but it is critical that governors also take a stand. As the debate continues your governor needs to hear from you.

Send a letter telling him/her to protect Medicaid from this vicious attack.

GOP health care talks are back in full swing, but despite new proposals being discussed this week, the bill’s cuts will still force people to pay more for less care and will hurt retirees, children, workers, and people with disabilities.

Alliance President Robert Roach, Jr. contacted the National Governors Association (NGA) about what America's governors can do to stop the Senate health care bill from moving forward. NGA responded that governors are actively involved in talks with Congressional leadership.

We need you to contact your governor and tell them to save Medicaid!

Thank you for your activism and your support.
