Senate Republicans are trying to push through partisan legislation by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). The Cassidy- Graham proposal would eliminate the expansion of Medicaid, which has extended coverage to 11 million low-income adults and block grant the Medicaid program. If this proposal passes millions will lose coverage and Medicaid as we know it would end.
The Senate could vote as early as this Wednesday, Sept. 27. If the proposal passes, the House is expected to immediately take it up.
Call (800-826-3688) your senators and representative today. Tell them to oppose the Cassidy-Graham bill that would cut Medicaid for millions and support instead a bipartisan, transparent effort that ensures American families do not have to choose between paying for food or paying for medical care.
