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.

Medicaid is the best thing that ever happened to me. I don't know what I'd do without it.
People's lives matter. My life matters.

Joy transcends disability. Don't de-fund Medicaid - people with differing abilities depend upon it. #savemedicaid

Medicaid provides our son with critical services that allow us to work and support our family, and helps him get specialized equipment that improves his quality of life and learning.

That's me on the left hugging my sister Becka. We both benefit from Medicaid. My sister has Down Syndrome and was born with a hole in her heart. Medicaid helps pay for her medical expenses, which might eventually include her getting surgery for a pacemaker. I am deaf. Medicaid helped pay for my cochlear implant in my right ear so I can "hear." Without my cochlear implant, I was forced to guess at conversations among hearing people or just be left out altogether. With Medicaid, my sister and I can afford medical surgeries that would be too expensive otherwise.
