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.

We need to #SaveMedicaid to provide crucial supports to individuals with disabilities so they can live in their homes and communities. Medicaid is their lifeline.

Need another reason to #SaveMedicaid? It’s a vital lifeline for rural communities and small towns.

Criticize policy? Of course. It's called DEBATING #NoCutsNoCaps #SaveMedicaid But it's no use because we are not real people per @EricTrump
Dawn Zeterberg
I only get 3 hours per day of care, don't take it away!! It does not make any sence to put me in a nursing home and pay for 24/7 care when I don't need it!!! That would be a waste of money!!!! Wake up people!!!!!!!!!!!! I would take my own life!!!!!!!!!!! A nursing home would kill me anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm only two years old, but Medicaid has already saved my life and my family's financial future. My cardiologist, pulmonologist, nephrologist, endocrinologist, and all of my doctors and therapists agree that I'm worth it! I hope that @ThomTillis and @RichardPBurr think so too!

I rely on Medicaid to pay for my Medicare premiums. I am Disabled and unable to work so I have a limited amount of money every month from SSI, and seeing different doctors and therapists can cost a lot of money, so not having to worry about having the money for that and premiums really helps my sanity.
