Tell Your Legislators to #Fight4Medicaid
Last year, politicians ran for office across Wisconsin, promising to help working families get affordable, accessible healthcare. Governor Tony Evers proposed a solution, the Medicaid expansion, which would expand care for 83,000 people, save taxpayer money, and improve care for everyone in Wisconsin.
70% of Wisconsinites agree -- Wisconsin needs the Medicaid expansion. Accepting the full expansion would save our state over $300 million, trigger $1.6 billion in new federal dollars invested in our health care system, and increase everyone’s access to affordable, quality care. But for it to succeed, your legislators need to hear your voice.
Despite overwhelming support from across the state, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he will not accept the Medicaid expansion, saying, “Not going to happen. No way. Never.” Without your voice, he and the legislative Republicans will ignore their campaign promises and vote the expansion down.
