Millions of Americans rely on Medicaid to live with dignity. They, along with millions of other people with disabilities, will be harmed by the Senate’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that cuts the revenue necessary to fund Medicaid. This isn’t about data and numbers, it’s about the lives of real people. See some of their stories below. We hope it will inspire you to take action. You can submit your own story here.
