Tell Congress to Protect Medicaid for Millions of American Kids and Families
Senate Bill Cuts Medicaid Even Deeper than House-Pass Version, 22 Million Lose Coverage

Medicaid provides long-term care to millions of seniors, critical services that help Americans with disabilities live independently, and is a core part of the successful coverage of America’s children. Unfortunately, leaders in Congress are taking aim at the country’s most-effective health and nutrition programs for Americans living in poverty. The House passed a health bill that guts Medicaid by not only winding down the Medicaid expansion but also capping the core program, resulting in 14 million children, seniors, people with disabilities, and others losing health coverage via Medicaid (and 24 million losing health coverage overall).  The Senate proposal released June 22 would do even more damage by gutting Medicaid even deeper over time, putting health coverage for children, people with disabilities, and seniors at serious risk, and would result in 22 million Americans losing coverage in the next decade.  In particular, the Senate’s cuts and caps to Medicaid are worse over time than the House bill. It's important we keep up the pressure on both the House and Senate to oppose any bill that cuts or caps Medicaid or causes millions of Americans to lose their health insurance.

Take Action: Tell members of Congress to protect Medicaid from deep cuts or structural changes.

Take Action
  • Let your members of Congress know you are a constituent.
  • Say a little about yourself. Some ideas are: how long you have lived in the area and why the issue is important to you -- are you a teacher, a parent, a person who cares about children?
  • For more impact, create a custom letter by adding or changing text that makes your letter personal.
