Trumpcare is an attack on Seniors

All members of Congress

Trumpcare’s $880 billion cut to Medicaid is much more than an attack on the poor, working families, children, seniors and people with disabilities. It is an attack on the American people. It is an attack on families, and our shared belief that we have a duty to care for one another.

Medicaid provides vital health insurance protections to seniors in nursing homes and low-income Americans of all ages. Although the majority of Medicaid beneficiaries are children and working-age adults, Medicaid spends more money on long term care for seniors and people with disabilities than anything else.

This Thursday, on the anniversary of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, the Republican led House of Representatives will vote to replace the ACA with Trumpcare―an $880 billion cut to Medicaid.

Stand with Social Security Works and our partners at Caring Across Generations. Sign the petition today demanding Congress reject Trumpcare and its reckless cuts to Medicaid―a direct attack on seniors and people with disabilities.

​Medicaid provides critical care for Americans of all ages, including long-term care coverage. For many people, it is the only option. Even middle class and well-off Americans will often rely on Medicaid for long-term care coverage after exhausting their own resources. People who worked hard to plan for retirement shouldn't have to spend down their savings while Trump gives a tax break to the wealthy. We demand that you reject Trumpcare and its reckless cuts to Medicaid, which will devastate the health, retirement security and wellbeing of millions of seniors, their families and their caregivers.​
