Sign and send a petition: Oppose Graham-Cassidy or lose in 2018
Think you are safe from Obamacare repeal in a blue state, or a state that accepted Medicaid? WRONG.
Republicans in the Senate are steamrolling ahead with a new plan to repeal Obamacare by September 30, 2017. This nightmarish bill, called Graham-Cassidy, would be particularly vicious to blue states.
It would actually slash federal health care spending by billions of dollars to states that expanded Medicaid, and give that money to red states that did not expand it!
So yeah, blue states not only aren't safe—they are actually in the most danger.
If the Senate passes this bill, the only thing left to prevent it from becoming law will be the House. That's where you come in.
We only need 23 House Republicans to oppose this bill, and it is defeated. By contrast, there are 117 House Republicans in the 31 states that accepted Medicaid expansion, including your member of Congress.
We need to jam the email inboxes of these 117 House Republicans right now, and let them know that their constituents are well aware that Graham-Cassidy will transfer billions of dollars in health care funds for their states to the 19 states that did not expand Medicaid.
If any of those 117 Republicans vote for this, they are literally taking money from your pocket and giving it to someone in another state.
Sign and send a petition to your House Republican: Don't send our health care funding to a state that did not expand Medicaid. Oppose Graham-Cassidy or lose in 2018.
The 31 states and District of Columbia who accepted Medicaid expansion are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington & West Virginia.
