New York Times "Gets It" on Medicaid

New York Times "Gets It" on Medicaid

The New York Times published a great editorial yesterday highlighting the need for lawmakers and the Obama administration to make sure that any efforts to reduce spending do not "cause undue harm to millions" of low-income individuals, people with disabilities and the elderly. Unfortunately, the latest news reports on the White House deficit reduction negotiations suggest that the 60 million Americans who rely on Medicaid for their health care coverage could, as the New York Times warned, "be in grave jeopardy in this sour I've-got-mine political climate." That's why we need to take action NOW.

Call your
Senators and Representatives and urge them to protect Medicaid from
drastic cuts or other harmful changes such as block grants or global
spending caps. You can reach the Capitol Switchboard at 202.224.3141 or
send an email with just a few clicks.

Talking points can be found here. Contact me via email or at 202.387.2800 if you have any questions or want to know what else you can do to protect Medicaid.
