URGENT: Go behind closed doors to protect Medicaid



In Washington, deficit reduction talks are going on behind closed doors. And Medicaid is a prime target. 

The House of Representatives has already approved a budget that would block grant and cut Medicaid by almost $1.4 trillion over the next 10 years.

This would be devastating to the millions of vulnerable seniors who rely on the program for long-term care and Medicare low-income protections.

Now the conversation has moved behind closed doors. Social Security appears to be off the table, and the recent backlash against Medicare cuts have led many to believe that the focus of entitlement cuts is shifting to Medicaid.

Email your Senators by June 3 to oppose Medicaid cuts.

Tell your Senators that we cannot balance the budget on the backs of our most vulnerable citizens. Urge them to oppose block granting and drastically cutting Medicaid. We also need to oppose backdoor mechanisms—like caps and triggers—that can be just as harmful unless Medicaid is exempted from automatic cuts.

Senators are back home next week for the Memorial Day recess—this is a great time to talk with them in the state.

Thanks for your support!
