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.

Nursing homes cost 3x as much as community care. The #AHCA would cut Medicaid & force ppl like German into homes. #saveMedicaid #readAHCA

Unpaid caregivers (like parents) save taxpayers $450 billion a year. Cutting their support hurts everyone. #SaveMedicaid

I have legal custody of an amazing 3yo. But as legal guardian my BCBS won't cover him. Medicaid is only option. #IamMedicaid #ALpolitics

Waiting lists are already years long. Medicaid cuts & caps would make them even longer. #SaveMedicaid #NoCutsNoCaps
