The Call –#SaveMedicaid #NoCapsNoCuts

Medicaid is the largest source of funding for medical and health-related services for people with low income in the United States. It is a means-tested program that is jointly funded by the state and federal governments and managed by the states, with each state currently having broad leeway to determine who is eligible for its implementation of the program. The AHCA, if passed, will cut more than $800 billion from Medicaid over the next decade. “Per capita caps” will devastate Medicaid-funded services that people with disabilities need to live, work and participate in their communities. Medicaid provides specialized healthcare services like nursing, personal care and therapies to children and adults with disabilities, seniors, and the working poor.

This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I’m calling to urge [Sen____] to oppose the fast-tracked ACHA and any and all cuts to Medicaid.

Share your personal story – Cutting Medicaid will have a devastating impact on everyone [me/ my family member/ my friends].

The Senate majority leader could have tried to create an effective, bipartisan overhaul of Obamacare. He chose a different approach.
