Call your Member of Congress NOW and tell them: We need more access to aordable healthcare and long-term care, not less! Don’t forget to share your own experience of why this is important to you and your community.

No wonder Congress took so long to put out their plan: it is not a plan at all! Extreme right-wing elected ocials in Washington are determined to give tax cuts to the rich by reducing funding for aordable care for the rest of us. Their plan to cap Medicaid funding will be devastating for seniors, people with disabilities and working families. Tell Washington we need a REAL plan for aordable healthcare and no artificial caps on Medicaid.
