Action Alert – Call Your Senator Now to Say #HandsOff Medicaid!

A healthcare bill, called the Graham-Cassidy bill, is gaining traction in the Senate and appears to be close to having enough votes to pass. If passed, this bill would have devastating effects on Medicaid funding, would allow states to waive essential health benefits, and would seriously restrict access to health care coverage.
You can learn more about the bill here.

Time is sensitive!  Under the budget reconciliation process, the bill would need to pass with a simple majority before September 30th without ever going through a committee hearing.
