Urge Your Senators to Protect Medicaid


Defend affordable health care coverage. Take action now!

 

In a cruel and heartless move, Senate Republicans are sprinting to take lifesaving health care away from millions of people.

According to news reports, the Trump administration and Senate Republican leadership are rushing to pass a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—all behind closed doors and without public hearings or expert input. As a result, millions of people could lose access to affordable health coverage—particularly those struggling to make ends meet who depend on Medicaid coverage. Join us in telling the Senate to stop these senseless attacks on Medicaid, now.

Tell the Senate to Protect Medicaid
Send your Senators an urgent message to reject any bill that would take health coverage from families struggling to make ends meet.

Take Action

The Trump administration and Senate Republicans are promising that the Senate bill to repeal the ACA will be very similar to the repeal bill passed by the House — which would have a devastating impact on women’s access to health care. The House version of the bill effectively decimates Medicaid by:

  • Eliminating the ACA’s expansion of Medicaid to childless adults.
  • Putting caps on Medicaid spending, even in the face of public health threats like the Zika virus or Flint water crisis.
  • Imposing cruel work requirements that would kick people off coverage.
  • Defunding trusted providers like Planned Parenthood, leaving those who are living paycheck to paycheck nowhere to turn for their health care.

There is too much at stake to be silent. Urge your Senators to protect Medicaid now.

We’ll never stop fighting to defend affordable health care for all of us. Thank you for everything you do to fight alongside with us.

Sincerely,
Gretchen Borchelt
Vice President for Reproductive Rights and Health
