With a new Congress and President, millions of Americans are asking “what comes next?” Unfortunately, Congressional leaders are working to dismantle health coverage for millions and will attempt to make radical changes to the social safety net, dismantling programs such as Medicaid and SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) that allow millions of people to make ends meet every year.
The new health care proposal – the American Health Care Act – would make drastic changes to health insurance in America, and make devastating changes to Medicaid. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that 24 million people – 14 million of them on Medicaid – would lose health coverage over the next ten years. Use a letter to the editor to remind Congress that they must reinforce, not rip apart, the programs that help millions of low-income Americans make ends meet.
TAKE ACTION: Tailor our template letter to the editor calling on Congress to protect and strengthen the country’s safety net.
