TELL CONGRESS TODAY: Do Not Repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and Do Not Cut Medicaid!
Members of Congress are still considering repeal and replacement of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The repeal contains massive restructuring and funding cuts to the Medicaid program to pay for the repeal and replacement of the ACA. To pay for it, Congress wants to cut $880 billion from the Medicaid program.
Negotiations continue and a vote is expected this week! The vote was pulled from the floor once before, and we can do it again with your help! We need everyone, people with disabilities, their family members and professionals to continue to educate and inform all members of Congress about the importance of comprehensive, quality, affordable, non-discriminatory and accessible healthcare for every person. The Medicaid program provides healthcare, but also allows persons with disabilities the opportunity to get an education, go to work or live in the community.
Watch this video to see why it is more important than ever to share your story with Members of Congress:
Please take a few minutes and tell your Senators and Representative to not repeal the ACA and to protect the Medicaid program. Send a letter to your senators and representative TODAY to tell them of the importance of the ACA and Medicaid.
