Senate Bill Released
The Senate has released its draft healthcare bill (the “Better Care Reconciliation Act”) and is moving quickly towards a vote next week. The draft bill is devastating. We need to ACT NOW to save medicaid and the lives of the millions of Americans who depend on it.
Like the House bill, the Senate bill contains per capita caps that would completely restructure the Medicaid program and cause devastating cuts to the critical services on which people with disabilities rely. In fact, the Senate bill has even deeper cuts than the House bill.
Senators will be home this weekend. A number of Senators are very concerned about this bill. The time for Advocacy is NOW! Please, please, please, take a few minutes out of your day to call, write, or attend events in your home state ! Tell your Senator that you are against this bill and urge them to Save Medicaid!
